    One of the most intriguing developmental prospects of the Cowboys’ training camp has moved on to a new team after being cut on Friday.

    Linebacker Adrian Hamilton, who had 20.5 sacks at Prairie View A&M in 2011, joined the Baltimore practice squad on Saturday, according to Ravens insider Aaron Wilson. The Cowboys did not attempt to sign Hamilton to their own eight-man practice roster, instead keeping only one linebacker, Orie Lemon. He had been on the Cowboys practice squad throughout 2011.

    Hamilton had one sack for the Cowboys this preseason, also forcing a fumble against St. Louis.

    Why in the world would the Cowboys not want him on the 53-man roster? Who cares about special teams? He was going to be inactive the first part of the season anyway.

    1st mistake: not putting him on the 53 man roster
    2nd mistake: not signing him to the practice squad.

    Hopefully, the Cowboys will make up for it by signing him to the 53 man roster soon from the Ravens practice squad. Preferably right now but soon after the Giants game is ok by me.:)

    Maybe when the Cowboys wise up and cut Arkin's sorry butt. If Wilbur has a relapse or if either of the starters go down, Cowboys will be in a world of hurt. Both Ware and Spencer have played a crazy amount of snaps in the last 3 years. NY has it right with the way they rotate their front 7, ala Jimmy Johnson.

    I wish we would have also. But instead hopefully he'll be like Cameron Wake and come out of nowhere. That's who he reminds me of.

    Hamilton reminds me of the "go get em attitude" of a player a couple of years ago by the name of Victor Butler. He turned out pretty good , didn't he?:laugh2:

    I think he wasn't going to play much and why waste s spot, especially with other positions being pretty thin. Now I do wish they would of at least signed him to the PS.

    So why the lovefest for a LB who wasn't drafted by anyone, who made one sack in preseason, who passed through wavers by all 32 teams, and who would be behind Ware, Spencer, Butler, Wilber, and even Albright?

    I don't get it.

    Hamilton showed too much promise to be let go, look at all the quarterback pressures he had in games.:cool:

    Pressure? Both Spencer and Butler bring better pressure...Butler backs up DeMarcus Ware and Kyle Wilber backs up Spencer. The Cowboys need one more OLB for this season?
