Dallas Cowboys cut former ticket, Argo, bomber kicker Lirim Hazrullahu. CBC News

The Dallas Cowboys forgave former CFL kicker Lirim Hazrullahu on Tuesday, leaving Brett Maher as the only kicker on the roster going into the final preseason game against Seattle on Friday.

Hazrullahu of St. Catharines, Ont., and unfinished rookie Jonathan Garibe began training camp on the Dallas roster, but the kicking contest in California did not go down well.

Hazrullah spent six years in the CFL from 2014 to 2019 with Winnipeg, Toronto and Hamilton. He was named an East Division All-Star twice and helped the Argonauts win the 2017 Gray Cup.

He has bounced around the NFL since moving south in 2020, but has failed to stay with the team long enough. This was his second stint with the Cowboys.

Dallas added Maher, pardoning Garybe, two weeks ago. Maher was a 29-year-old rookie for Dallas in 2018, but a year later he was let go after 13 games for 30 to 49 yards in just 7 of 13. He was 20 out of 30 overall in 2019.

Maher didn’t kick off the 2020 season during the pandemic-reversed season before going 16 of 18 in eight matches with New Orleans last season. The Cowboys decided not to bring Greg Zuerlein back in 2021 after a shaky second season with him. Zurlein is with the New York Jets.
