Earlier this week, the Dallas Cowboys released former first-round pick Taco Charlton.

The move came after Charlton failed to crack the starting lineup after two years in the organization. The former Michigan star showcased his talent at the NFL combine and shot up draft boards into the first round.

However, the Cowboys' depth at the defensive end position made it difficult for the former Wolverine to make it onto the field.

Dallas activated Robert Quinn before Week 3 of the season, which was the end for Charlton with the Cowboys. After his exit, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had a brutally honest comment about Charlton's performance in Dallas.

In a recent radio interview, Jones said "he just wilted" about Charlton's time with the team.

Dallas is off to a hot start to the season and welcome the disastrous Miami Dolphins to town this weekend.

Quarterback Dak Prescott is tied for the league-lead in touchdown passes and star running back Ezekiel Elliott has dominated since signing his record contract. New offensive coordinator Kellen Moore has the offense firing on all cylinders which is bad new for a Miami team that has given up 102 points in its first two games.

Dallas and Miami kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET on FOX.
