Jerry Jones throws Taco Charlton under the bus after waiving him

Taco Charlton

The Dallas Cowboys selected defensive lineman Taco Charlton in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, but it’s fair to say they were quite disillusioned with him by the time they placed him on waivers this week.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did not mince words in explaining why the team opted to move on from Charlton after just over two seasons. Jones accused Charlton of wilting, and said he struggled to mentally recover after bad practices.

Ouch. Jones is known to be a straight shooter, but that’s a very harsh assessment of a former first-round selection.

The stats bear out that Charlton just didn’t contribute enough. After picking up three sacks in his rookie year, Charlton’s tally fell to one in 2018 despite seven starts.
