Cowboys waive running back Lache Seastrunk

The Dallas Cowboys have had their fill of Lache Seastrunk.

Every game, all season

The team on Thursday waived the running back just two months after adding the former Baylor star to the roster.

Initially drafted in the sixth round by the Redskins in 2014, Seastrunk reportedly "frustrated coaches with his inability to stick with the play that's called," per ESPN.com's Todd Archer, who added: "He freelances way too much and can turn a 2-yard gain into a 5-yard loss. That infuriates coaches."

Seastrunk was on the ropes to begin with, struggling for playing time behind Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar and pushed even further down the list by the return of Darren McFadden.

Seastrunk ran for 16 yards on five totes in last week's preseason loss to the Chargers. He didn't even see the field until deep backup Gus Johnson went down with a shoulder injury.

Two teams with room for backfield help have waved farewell to Seastrunk in less than a year. Despite his saucy talent in open space, he's a stretch to make a 53-man roster in 2015.
