IRVING -- Roy Williams was angry about suddenly having an empty locker next to his after the Dallas Cowboys cut veteran cornerback Aaron Glenn.
When asked if he was surprised that Glenn was among the 21
players cut yesterday, Williams tersely expressed his bitterness.
He says Glenn was a wise and knowledgable asset to the Cowboys.
The 35-year-old Glenn is a two-time Pro Bowler going into his
14th NFL season. He was signed earlier today by Jacksonville to be
the Jaguars' fifth cornerback.
Starting cornerback Terence Newman is still questionable with a
foot injury for Sunday night's season opener against the New York
Giants. That's why it was a surprise to many that the Cowboys cut
the popular Glenn.
Glenn was primarily the third corner and played in nickel
situations during his two seasons in Dallas. He started only eight
of 32 games, and wasn't a special teams player.
Jacksonville is Glenn's fourth NFL team. Before Dallas, he spent
three seasons in Houston and eight with the New York Jets.
