Tank Johnson, Zach Thomas Unlikely to Be Back in 2009

From: Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Unless owner Jerry Jones changes his mind, which should never be ruled out, dramatic and sweeping changes can’t be expected at Valley Ranch this off-season. … With so many players locked into long-term contracts, and unless Jones contradicts himself and fires coaches and cuts players, improvements will have to be made in-house.

The Cowboys also do not have a first round selection in the 2009 draft. The most obvious candidates appearing in a Cowboys uniform for a final time include: Tank Johnson, who hasn’t played well since the team signed him last season. He had taken down his name plate over his locker at Valley Ranch until the equipment staff put it back. Linebacker Zach Thomas said he will “probably not” return next season.

Linebacker Greg Ellis is a pass-rush specialist, period. DE Chris Canty can be a free agent. Safety Roy Williams was limited to just three games because of injuries, and his status is uncertain.
