Just two days after the Cowboys cut wide receiver Lucky Whitehead amid a freakish situation that involved a Virginia arrest warrant for him being rescinded, his No. 13 jersey is already back in use by another receiver.
The Osbourn High School graduate was released by the Dallas Cowboys Monday, but was not officially placed on the waiver list until Tuesday at 4 p.m.The waiver period lasts 24 hours before a player can be claimed by another team.
Whitehead appeared in 30 games the past two seasons with the Cowboys.
Unfortunately, this was just another case of mistaken identity.
The Cowboys explained upon getting the initial news that they were "gathering information", a process that stopped well short of accepting Whitehead's explanations and/or checking the actual facts of the case.

Clashes also flared in east Jerusalem and other Palestinian villages in the West Bank near Jerusalem on Saturday, police said. This decision aroused the anger of the Palestinians and Jordan, the guardian of the holy places of Jerusalem.
There's another answer that sticks out, though, and that's when Garrett says, "We know a lot of things about our players that you guys don't know". The Cowboys only found out this revelation after hastily cutting him from their roster. "We're going to stand by that decision and move forward".
Prince William County Police in Virginia said Tuesday that Whitehead wasn't the person involved in the theft and dropped the charges. "Clearly because I wasn't the person arrested". "I know how much he wants to make the team". For whatever reason-they literally won't say why-they just made a decision to cut Whitehead immediately. As far as the whole situation went down, I was blindsided. "I think they're wrong, but I get it".
A week before his eventual release, Whitehead claimed his dog, Blitz, had been kidnapped and was being held for $20,000 ransom.
Executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones and coach Jason Garrett said Whitehead's release was an accumulation of events, although Garrett acknowledged Monday that the decision came after the club did more work gathering information.
"Boy, I had a wonderful time before this social media hit", he told reporters.
