BREAKING: Cowboys Release K Dan Bailey


The Dallas Cowboys have parted ways with the best kicker in their franchise’s history, Dan Bailey.

Dan Bailey, who has the Cowboys’ record for field goals in a career with 186, was one of the final cuts by the Cowboys, who trimmed their roster down to 53 on Saturday:


The decision has much to do with the Cowboys desire to stick with Brett Maher, who made a 57-yard field goal in the team’s final preseason game.

Maher, who was with the Cowboys in 2013, has bounced around in the CFL. He returned to the Cowboys last April but does not have any NFL stats having yet to kick in a regular-season game.
