Dallas Cowboys

Never Too Early For Another Cowboys' 53-Man Roster Projection

Only 19 days until the Cowboys kick off the 2011 NFL season against the New York Jets at Meadowlands Stadium. Even more imminent, a week from today Dallas will trim its roster down from 90 to 75.

By September 3, we'll be down to the final 53.

After two weeks in San Antonio, a week at Cowboys Stadium, a couple practices against the San Diego Chargers and two pre-season games, how is the roster shaping up?

According to my crystal football, like this ...

QUARTERBACK -- Tony Romo/ Jon Kitna/ Stephen McGee

RUNNING BACK -- Felix Jones/ DeMarco Murray/ Tashard Choice/ Chris Gronkowski

OFFENSIVE LINE -- Doug Free/ David Arkin/ Andre Gurode/ Kyle Kosier/ Tyron Smith/ Phil Costa/ Bill Nagy/ Montrae Holland

TIGHT END -- Jason Witten/ Martellus Bennett/ John Phillips

RECEIVER -- Miles Austin/ Dez Bryant/ Kevin Ogletree/ Dwayne Harris/ Jesse Holley/ Raymond Radway

KICKER -- David Buehler

LONG-SNAPPER -- L.P. Ladouceur

PUNTER -- Mat McBriar

DEFENSIVE LINE -- Marcus Spears/ Jay Ratliff/ Kenyon Coleman/ Josh Brent/ Jason Hatcher/ Sean Lissemore

CORNERBACK -- Terence Newman/ Mike Jenkins/ Orlando Scandrick/ Alan Ball/ Bryan McCann/ Josh Thomas
