Cowboys Waive Former First-Round DE Taco Charlton

The Dallas Cowboys have waived former first-round DE Taco Charlton on Wednesday, according to Ian Rapoport.

It’s been clear for a few weeks now that Charlton’s time in Dallas was likely coming to an end, so this isn’t a big surprise. 

Charlton publicly requested a trade after being a healthy scratch for the first two games of the season. 

It will be interesting to see if someone claims Charlton off of waivers on Thursday. 

Charlton, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2017. He’s entering the third year of his four-year, $10.02 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $1.37 million and $1.83 million over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2018, Charlton appeared in 11 games for the Cowboys and recorded 27 tackles, one sack, a fumble recovery and a pass defense.
