    Garrett On Decision To Cut McCann

    If a few things had worked out a little bit differently, Jason Garrett might not have been able to keep the head coaching job he took over on an interim basis. Without the help of cornerback Bryan McCann, the Cowboys might not have won Garrett's first two games last year.

    In Garrett's debut as head coach, the upset at New York last November, McCann returned an interception 101 yards for a touchdown to put the Cowboys up 19-3 in the second quarter. The next week, he made a heady play to pick up a bouncing ball on a punt, and returned it 97 yards for a touchdown against Detroit.

    Cookies crumble all the time in this NFL, though. With a starting cornerback returning from injury in Terence Newman this week, and the wide receiver position ailing, McCann was deemed unnecessary by the Cowboys on Tuesday, and was released to make room for pass-catcher Laurent Robinson, a move Garrett explained on Thursday....

    This is good news for the Cowboys. I believe Robinson is just a stop gap until Dez or Austin returns healthy, and that we will release him and sign McCann back.

    Probably. We won't need to carry six healthy receivers (Austin, Bryant, Ogletree, Holley, Harris and Robinson) unless Robinson proves invaluable at the position.

    I could see McCann coming back to the Cowboys at some point but it will be due to an injury to one of our current corners.

    McCann just isn't that good a cornerback, point blank.

    The Cowboys made a one for one replacement/tradeout preferring Frank Walker to McCann. It's as simple as that.
