The Dallas Cowboys have placed second-year safety Mike Hamlin on waivers, reports Matt Mosley of ESPN.com.
A fifth-round pick (166th overall) out of Clemson in 2009, Hamlin appeared in 8 games for the Cowboys over the last two seasons, totaling one special teams tackle. Hamlin was a gameday inactive the last two weeks, falling behind undrafted rookies Barry Church and Danny McCray on the depth chart.
During his 48-game career at Clemson, Hamlin (6-2, 218) registered 326 tackles and picked off 14 passes. Those ball-hawking abilities will certainly get the attention of NFL personnel executives scouring the waiver wire today.
