Cowboys Cut Rivera

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys today released three-time Pro Bowl guard Marco Rivera. Rivera underwent two back operations in his two seasons with the Cowboys. Rivera signed a five-year, $20 million contract with the Cowboys in 2005 and hurt his back shortly after. Last season, he started all 16 regular season games before hurting his back again in the wildcard playoff loss at Seattle. Without Rivera, newly acquired Cowboys lineman Leonard Davis will almost certainly play right guard instead of tackle for the Cowboys. Dallas had already re-signed right tackle Marc Colombo and has Pro Bowler Flozell Adams at left tackle.
