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
Rivera signed a five-year, 20 (m) million dollar 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.
