So Charlton talked him into existence.
Days after his "release me" came out on social media, the desire for a safe third year was fulfilled. The Dallas Cowboys quit Charlton on Wednesday, announcing the team, betting on unsuccessful months of efforts to trade the 2017 first-round tournament.
The Cowboys' roster has activated DE Robert Quinn in his corresponding roster. two games, he has the right to make his debut in Dallas on Sunday against his former team, the Miami Dolphins. The team had until 3pm CT to use their Quinn exemption.
Once considered a lynchpin faster to secure a position for years to come, Charlton has never taken advantage of this reputation nor with his status as selection No. 28.
A career in disobedience, he ends his term at the Cowboys with 46 rounds, four sacks, two pass deflections and a forced strike in 27 regular season games. He was a healthy scratch in weeks 1 and 2 as the club tried to maintain the resemblance to the commercial value it had left him.
Through all this, the rumors and speculations that capture his future, Charlton falters between cautious optimism that Dallas will have a change of heart and intense resignation that Dallas will never let him see the field again.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones addressed the former in a radio interview on Tuesday, cracking the door on not only Taco's stay, but even the claim against the Dolphins.
"We need him there. We need him there, "Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "You notice [Trysten] Hill is not there. He could be there this weekend. The good news is that we have such depth there and we have guys that maybe because they can get in or out, but we have guys who were better for the team to be there. We have many players out there who can help our team and help with any given game. So it does not surprise me that we have boys who are inactive. This is what happens to good football players. "
Jones' remarks were little more than a posing, an effort in the last ditch to throw a 24-year-old youth for something – something – before biting a bullet. And finally, Charlton's lack of flexibility, combined with lower-than-average production and outspoken trends, made the decision without a second thought.
Charlton is immediately subject to refusals and, assuming he is released, will be free to sign with any team he wishes.

Charlton's departure is good for depth, but not so great for a pocketbook. The Cowboys will have to eat about $ 3.19 million in dead money stemming from his four-year rookie contract, which carries a $ 1.36 million base salary for 2019 and a $ 2.735 million paycheck.
When Taco is not in the picture, Dallas moves forward with DeMarcas Lawrence and Tyron Crawford as starting defensive ends and Kerry Heather, Dorance Armstrong, Christian Covington and Quinn as primary reserves.
Quinn will make his Cowboys debut against his former employer, the Dolphins, though he may be on the pitch after offseason surgery and his two-match ban.
