Vince Mayle cut from Cowboys

His last game with America's team also happened to be Joe Dahl's first NFL start

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Former Washington State standout Vince Mayle was released by the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, after appearing in six games for the NFC East leaders. The wide receiver was signed from the Cowboys practice squad earlier in the season, but is yet to record a catch in the NFL.

It looks like the move was made to free up a roster spot for a new offensive lineman for the Cowboys, where their depth is thin. Meanwhile, Mayle will look for his third employer since the Cleveland Browns selected him in the fourth round of the 2014 draft.

You'll remember that the Coug wideout had a short, but illustrious career on the Palouse. After a stint playing basketball at a community college, Mayle came to WSU in 2013 and finished his two-year career with 2,022 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns.

Interestingly enough, Mayle's last game with Dallas this past Monday night against Detroit, was a milestone for one of his former teammates. In that game, rookie offensive lineman Joe Dahl got his first start for the Lions. Dahl, who started at left guard, played on the offensive line for the Cougs during both of Mayle's seasons with the team.
