At this time, players start to get the feeling that they’ve made an NFL roster after surviving the 53-man roster cuts. However, the Dallas Cowboys made a roster move today, re-setting their roster.

The team has released rookie safety Ahmad Dixon. In a corresponding move, the team signed veteran C.J. Spillman.

Spillman played in just 79 defensive snaps last season with the San Francisco 49ers. During that time, he had 25 tackles.

He spent the previous four seasons with the 49ers after being his rookie season in 2009 with the San Diego Chargers.

Dixon was the 248th overall pick in this year’s draft. He made 38 starts in his collegiate career, where he played primarily a linebacker-safety hybrid position.

He was supposed to play primarily on special teams, before his release this morning. He is now free to sign elsewhere, but may have to prove his self by signing on a team’s practice squad.
