Cowboys to cut Williams, Barber and others...

DALLAS, TX (KLTV) - In an attempt to move their team under the new salary cap, multiple sources are reporting the Cowboys will cut ties with several players.

Most notably, wide receiver Roy Williams and running back Marion Barber are on the way out.

The Cowboys will save $5 million dollars by cutting Williams, whose career in Dallas never materialized, catching just 37 passes last year.

While Barber had a better stay in Dallas, his production has dwindled in recent years and has battled injuries as well.

The team will save $4.75 million by cutting Barber, who never rushed for 1,000 yards in any season.

The Cowboys also drafted OU running back DeMarco Murray, and have Tashard Choice and Felix Jones already on the roster.

In addition to those two, the team is expected to release kicker Kris Brown and offensive lineman Leornard Davis.

Training camp for the Cowboys begins as players report on Wednesday with the first practice on Thursday.
