Dallas Cowboys expected to waive former Arkansas star RB Darren McFadden

Dak Prescott: Dallas Cowboys' offensive 'funk' not fun

McFadden acknowledged he will be waived in a tweet Sunday, saying it was "awesome" to play for the team he grew up rooting for.

The McFadden move will become official on Monday and it's also expected that kicker Mike Nugent will be released as well, according to a report from David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. Even when Elliott was out on suspension, Dallas only activated two RBs and kept McFadden on the bench. The team has made a decision to release kicker Mike Nugent after fellow kicker Dan Bailey returned to the team and proved his health in practice, according to David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.

McFadden was inactive for the first eight games of the season, then played just one snap in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons, losing 2 yards on his lone carry. Bailey returned for the 28-6 Thanksgiving loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, Dallas' third straight without Elliott. The former Oakland Raiders first-round pick put up 1,417 total yards back in 2015. Jones has nine career sacks, all with the Packers from 2013-16 and appeared in three games with the San Francisco 49ers this season before being waived last week.




The Cowboys signed Nugent when kicker Dan Bailey hurt his groin late in October.
