Cowboys dump RB Seastrunk


The Sports Xchange

The Dallas Cowboys waived running back Lache Seastrunk and picked up cornerback Rod Sweeting on Thursday.

Seastrunk was selected in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins and signed with the Cowboys in June during OTAs. He played in one preseason game for Dallas and rushed for 16 yards on five carries.

The former Baylor player frustrated Dallas coaches with his freelancing during plays, ESPN reported. Seastrunk also was expected to struggle for playing time with Joseph Randle, Lance Dunbar and Darren McFadden ahead of him in the backfield.

Sweeting was released by the Buffalo Bills on Wednesday. The undrafted Sweeting signed with the New Orleans Saints out of Georgia Tech in 2013, was traded to the Bills and played in nine games during the 2013 season, finishing with three tackles.
