Receiver Dez Bryant was admittedly close with Whitehead, but he understood the decision the Cowboys had to make. The news comes just a few hours after reports surfaced of there being a warrant for his arrest for an alleged shoplifting incident in Virginia last month.

But get this, despite official court records with his name and birthdate - and confirmation from the Prince William County Police Dept. of an arrest of a 25-year-old Rodney Whitehead Jr. The incident took place on June 22, when a convenience store employee accused Whitehead of shoplifting less than $200 worth of merchandise.
He made the situation worse when he failed to show up for the court date and a warrant for his arrest was issued by the judge. He has another hearing on August 10.

The Cowboys moved swiftly in releasing Whitehead after two defensive players were arrested during the offseason.
Multiple sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter last week that Elliott could face a one- or two-game suspension, but the National Football League denied it made a decision on a course of disciplinary action. The team also signed Greg Hardy in 2015 after Hardy was convicted of domestic violence.
