The Dallas Cowboys also cut defensive tackle Brian Price, who was waived with the “injured” designation. This means that Brian Price will revert back to the Cowboys’ injured reserve if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
 
Corp was expected to compete for the third quarterback spot behind Tony Romo and Kyle Orton on the depth chart when the Cowboys initially signed him on Tuesday. However, the Cowboys entered last season with only two quarterbacks on the roster.
 
The 24-year-old Corp previously had two brief stints with the Cowboys over the past two seasons, but each time he was released to create space on the offseason roster.
 
Coming out of University of Southern California as an undrafted free agent, Corp took a crack at the NFL roster as a backup quarterback with the Buffalo Bills on April 28, 2012. But he was released the following month. After remaining out of football the entire season, Corp was again signed as a free agent by the Buffalo Bills. But this time was no different as Corp again became expendable to the Buffalo Bills once they drafted Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel in the first round last month.
 
The Cowboys had signed Brian Price to reserve/futures contract at the end of last season to add depth to their offensive line. However, the Cowboys cut Price due to concern over his medical history. The former second round pick Price fractured his Pelvis during his rookie year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2010 and has faced complications from the injury. Price started 14 games for the Buccaneers in 2011 before being traded to the Chicago Bears for a seventh-round pick last July. However, he did not play for the Bears and was cut last year. The Cowboys also decided to go in a different direction due to concern over his shoulder injury.
