Report: Cowboys to cut Poe, Worley if they can’t trade them

The Dallas Cowboys informed defensive tackle Dontari Poe and cornerback Daryl Worley that they will be released if the team is unable to trade them, NFL Network reported on Wednesday.

The report comes one day after the Cowboys traded defensive end Everson Griffen to the Detroit Lions for a conditional sixth-round pick.

Poe, 30, has recorded just seven tackles and zero sacks in seven games this season after signing a two-year, $8.5 million contract in March.

A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Poe has 285 tackles and 20.5 sacks in 128 career games (125 starts) with the Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers and Cowboys.

Worley, 25, has collected 14 tackles in seven games (four starts) this season. He has 257 tackles, five interceptions and two sacks in 63 career games with the Panthers, then-Oakland Raiders and Cowboys.

The Cowboys are 2-5 in the woeful NFC East. The Philadelphia Eagles, who the Cowboys meet Sunday night, lead the division with a 2-4-1 record.
