DALLAS, Texas (Nexstar) — Saturday marks the end of the road for many NFL hopefuls as teams, including the Dallas Cowboys, make their final roster cuts to reach the 53 player limit.

This year’s cuts include two recent draft picks who saw significant playing time in the preseason. Mike Jackson and Mike Weber headline the roster moves this season. Both fell short in their attempt to reach the final roster.

The Cowboys also released backup quarterback Mike White, Cedrick Wilson, Chris Covington and Darius Jackson. Second year corner Donovan Olumba, who had a pick six interception on Thursday against Tampa Bay, was the most noted non-draft pick cut this season.

Some of these players are likely to be re-signed for the practice squad over the coming days.
