The Dallas Cowboys released three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Dexter Coakley on Tuesday.

Coakley, one of the smallest linebackers in the league at 5-foot-10, 236 pounds, would have been due a $500,000 roster bonus if he was still on the team Wednesday.

Coach Bill Parcells also prefers bigger linebackers, especially if the Cowboys make the expected switch to a primary three-man front.

The 32-year-old Coakley started all 16 games last season, but shared significant time with Bradie James, selected in the second round of the 2003 draft by Parcells.

I was sad to hear this news, I liked Dexter Coakley. He was small, but he played much bigger and he made up for it with his speed. I hope he lands on a decent team.

Looks like he didn't hang about....

The St. Louis Rams began restocking their most needy position on Wednesday, signing outside linebacker Dexter Coakley to a five-year contract.

Shoot, that didn't take long.

Coakley will be like a field mouse on that St Louis turf.
