It won't be long before each NFL teams begins making cuts from their roster in an effort to eventually get down to the mandated 53-man limit. 

And as always, there are difficult decision to be made by every team, and according to a pair of analysts, the Dallas Cowboys could elect to make a highly regarded former 2021 Draft pick a victim of their annual roster subtractions. The player being referred to is none other than defensive tackle Chauncey Golston, who was taken out of Iowa in the 2021 NFL Draft and has amassed 79 total tackles in his career. 

And according to David Kenyon of Bleacher Report, Golston is the likely choice to be among the Cowboys roster cuts. 

“The turnover on the defensive line, in theory, is a good thing for Chauncey Golston. Dallas moved on from Johnathan Hankins and Neville Gallimore, vacating plenty of snaps up front,” writes Kenyon. “But the Cowboys will undoubtedly give rookies Justin Rogers and Denzel Daxon a long look.”

Additionally, Golston's name was mentioned as a potential cut candidate by Sayre Bedinger of FanSided earlier this year: 

“When I said earlier that the Cowboys have been loyal to guys, I think Chauncey Golston is a great example,” writes Bedinger. “This is a former third-round pick who has really not done anything of note for the Cowboys, and the team has even had to reload on the defensive line to supplement his lack of development as a former top-100 pick.”

A potential cut of Golston would save the Cowboy $1.3 million against the salary cap.
