Quarterback Ryan Leaf is without a job again. On Monday, the Dallas Cowboys became the third team in 15 months to cut Leaf, whose play has been erratic. The Cowboys gave up Leaf due to the emergence of Quincy Carter and the recent acquisition of former Stanford quarterback Chad Hutchinson.
Hutchinson has spent the past four seasons playing pro baseball. Leaf wasn't at the team's practice facility on Monday when the Cowboys started a three-day quarterback school, but his locker was still intact.
Leaf was the #2 overall pick by the San Diego Chargers in 1998. He's 4 - 17 as an NFL starter, with 36 interceptions and just 14 touchdowns.
Also, the Cowboys released rookie DT Maurice Gordon. The free agent from Texas had signed with Dallas last month.
