Cowboys BREAKING: LB Arrested On Drug Charge Before Being Cut

FRISCO – For Dallas Cowboys linebacker Rashaan Evans, the timing could not have been worse.

As the Cowboys were on Tuesday approaching a roster decision because of their desire to add depth to the offensive line, Evans – the former first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and an “off-the-couch” signing by Dallas this year – was arrested in Frisco on a charge of possession of marijuana.

The Cowboys are not saying specifically that the arrest helped clarify their decision. But Evans was released by the team on Wednesday morning.

After Leighton Vander Esch suffered a season-ending neck injury, the Cowboys signed Evans to the practice squad in October. Evans played in nine games this season, registering nine tackles as an aid to a team that now mostly relies on rookies Damone Clark and Markquese Bell.

Evans only participated in special teams play during last week’s defeat against Miami, despite the fact that the club still lacks depth at linebacker.

Dallas decided to activate offensive tackle Matt Waletzko off injured reserve and dismiss Evans at the same time on Wednesday.
