Drew Bledsoe Released By Cowboys

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Quarterback Drew Bledsoe, the Number One overall draft pick in 1993 who reunited with coach Bill Parcells in Dallas, was released today by the Cowboys. Bledsoe started 193 games in the NFL, including the first six in 2006 before he was replaced by Tony Romo, who then earned a spot on the NFC Pro Bowl team. Bledsoe was due a $1 million roster bonus tomorrow and would have made $4.5 million next season. The Cowboys also released tight end Ryan Hannam and guard EJ Whitley.

"I spoke with Drew today," Cowboys owner and general manager jerry Jones said, "and told him that this was primarily a cap decision and that the door was very much open for him being a part of our future."
