Adams, 34, was originally a 1998 second round draft pick by the Cowboys. He's spent his entire 13 year career in Dallas. He was due to make over $7 million in 2010 so the move makes sense. Plus, the Cowboys can afford to go younger with OT Doug Free.
Hamlin signed a multi-year contract with the team in 2007 and has been a disappointment ever since. The DMN weighs in on Hamlin's release.
Hamlin was set to make $5.5 million and had $1 million of guaranteed money remaining on his contract.
