NFL teams don't have to make pare their 90-man rosters down for a while, but there are always moves made around the margins in training camp.

The Dallas Cowboys made one of those moves earlier today when they waived undrafted rookie linebacker Aaron Hansford. 

A former standout at Texas A&M, Hansford began training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. 

After he passed his physical, he was waived. The NFL is a cold world, but hopefully Hansford can get a shot elsewhere now that he's healthy.

In the meantime, the Cowboys have a free roster spot available. Figure it won't take them long to fill it.

Dallas will open preseason play with a game against the Broncos on August 13.
