The Dallas Cowboys might want to rethinkcutting Will Grier.

On Saturday before the team’s preseason game, Grier was told that he was being cut but would be allowed to showcase his skills during the game for other teams.

After starting in the team’s preseason game vs. the Raiders, Grier balled out.

Grier was emotional after the game while speaking to the media.

“[It’s] bittersweet man, just close to a lot of these guys,” Grier said in the locker room postgame on Saturday, choking back tears. “That’s the hardest part. I mean, it was up and down, I was motivated. It was tough. It was a weird situation. And I think at the end of the day, I just relied on the fact that I know how to play football and I’m good at it. So I knew when the game started, I could just play football and that is what I did.”
