If we thought Cowboys running back Tashard Choice was not necessarily a Jason Garrett favorite -- as his 28 carries through six games, despite an injury to Felix Jones, would lead you to believe -- we can be positive about it right now.
As reported by ESPN Dallas, the Cowboys have waived Choice today.
Considering one of his biggest contributions to the team this season was co-hosting the radio show where Dez Bryant said the 2-3 Cowboys were unbeatable and considering Choice, who was on the trading block, was said to be in Garrett’s doghouse, this -- aside from the timing of the transaction -- shouldn’t be a big surprise.
But it is a disappointment. Choice never could break out during his three-season stay in Dallas and was prone to making silly mistakes -- like, running out of bounds when the Cowboys were trying to wind down the clock against the Redskins on their way to victory -- and after DeMarco Murray obliterated the team’s franchise record for rushing yards in a game last week, Choice became even more expendable than before.
He also suffered a shoulder injury last week vs. the Rams, and he was limited in practice this week. He then hurt his hamstring during the week and missed Friday's practice altogether.
Wrote Choice on his Twitter account: "I just want to say thanks to all the great dallas cowboy fans. My time in Dallas has come to an end and the best is yet come. God bless."
Linebacker Bruce Carter is expected to take his place on the roster, leaving Choice more time to add to his collection of athlete’s autographs.
