Robert Brewster cut to make room for Holley

October, 15, 2010
IRVING -- The Cowboys made a roster move on Friday, releasing tackle Robert Brewster, a 2009 third-round pick, and moving wide receiver Jesse Holley from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

It's expected that Holley will play on Sunday at Minnesota, mainly on special teams.

Brewster, who missed the 2009 season with a torn pectoral muscle, played in only one NFL game, the 2010 season opener at Washington.

Brewster was inactive the rest of the games.

Holley was the winner of 4th and Long, the reality TV show that landed him a spot on the Cowboys 80-man training camp roster last season.

"He's one of the hardest working guys we got on the team," team executive Stephen Jones said after Friday's practice. "We gave him an opportunity and he seems to make plays when given the opportunity, especially in the special teams areas."

More to come.
Calvin Watkins joined in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
