Cowboys waive former leading rusher Darren McFadden

McFadden can be claimed by any team and reportedly plans on continuing to play should he land a job with another team.

McFadden acknowledged he will be waived in a tweet Sunday, saying it was "awesome" to play for the team he grew up rooting for. That made Nugent expendable and lead to his inevitable release in favor of the Pro Bowl kicker who has been the starter in Dallas for 7 years. An underwhelming first four seasons with the Packers resulted in him signing a one-year free agent deal with Minnesota in the offseason, but he placed on injured reserve and released just before the start of the season. Even when Elliott was out on suspension, Dallas only activated two RBs and kept McFadden on the bench. Bailey returned for the 28-6 Thanksgiving loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, Dallas' third straight without Elliott.

McFadden finished fourth in the National Football League in rushing with the Cowboys in 2015 with 1,089 yards. He next landed in San Francisco, recording six total tackles over three games.
