The Dallas Cowboys are getting closer and closer to making the cut on their final roster ahead of the 2022 regular season.

Unfortunately, those roster cuts resulted in the end of one player's tenure at Dallas.

On Friday, the Cowboys released veteran tight end Jeremy Sprinkle with an injury settlement

Sprinkle was going into his second year with the Cowboys after re-signing with them in March.

But the Cowboys had to put him on injured reserve earlier this week.

His time in Dallas ends with only three receptions for 31 yards, as well as two tackles on special teams.

But once he recovers, he may still have an NFL future ahead of him.

Jeremy Sprinkle was a fifth-round pick by Washington from Arkansas in the 2017 NFL Draft.

He saw limited targets on offense in his first two years, but 2019 had a slightly breakout year.

Sprinkle had 26 receptions for 241 yards and one touchdown, starting 13 out of 13 games in 2019.

He played nearly two-thirds of the team's offensive snaps that season.

In four years at Washington, Sprinkle made 34 receptions for 301 yards and three touchdowns while playing 59 games, 33 of those starts.

Although Washington did not re-sign Sprinkle after the 2020 season,

and was promoted to the active roster, after spending the first quarter of 2021 in the Cowboys' practice squad.

Will Jeremy Sprinkle find another NFL team before the final roster is cut?
