Cowboys stick with L.P. Ladouceur

IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys will stick with veteran long snapper L.P. Ladouceur.

Rookie Charley Hughlett was the final roster cut Monday as the Cowboys reached the 75-man limit. The final cuts to the 53-man roster come Friday.

Hughlett took all of the snaps in the preseason opener at Oakland, and he and Ladouceur split work in the last two games. Hughlett did not have any bad snaps in his preseason work, but some of his placements were off a little.

With a young kicker and punter in Dan Bailey and Chris Jones, the Cowboys went with the veteran Ladouceur, who has had clean snaps on 493 punts, 214 field goals and 302 PATs since joining the Cowboys.

There was a thought that the team would be willing to make an economic decision in possible cutting ties with Ladouceur. He is in the final year of his deal and will count $950,000 against the salary cap with a $790,000 base salary. Hughlett would have made the rookie minimum of $390,000.
