Cowboys cut WR Lucky Whitehead after court no-show

Lucky Whitehead has reportedly been informed he’ll be released by the Dallas Cowboys, which head coach Jason Garrett had threatened could occur.

It’s been a crazy day for the receiver, who reportedly had an arrest warrant taken out after he failed to show up for court following an arrest for shoplifting in Virginia.

However, there’s an interesting twist to all of this, which is that flight records, and Whitehead’s lawyer, have made it clear he had not even arrived in Virginia on the date of his supposed arrest until after the crime had been committed.


No doubt, the NFLPA will look to get involved in this matter, which is turning into quite the roller coaster ride for Whitehead.

Last year, he was utilized almost exclusively as a return man, racking up 719 yards in punt and kickoff returns.
