Safety Brodney Pool, who was signed during the offseason to help the Dallas Cowboys‘ struggling secondary, was released by the team Monday — just one week after he failed his conditioning test.

Rookie cornerback Isaac Madison also was released Monday. Wide receiver David Little and running back Javarris Williams signed contracts and should practice this week.

The Cowboys’ decision to cut Pool, who was entering his eighth NFL season, sends a significant message to the team.

He said he was disappointed, “but I will move on though.”

Pool said last week that he wasn’t “embarrassed, I was just disappointed,” after failing the initial conditioning test. “I had run the previous Friday and did pass it, but when I got here I didn’t pass it, so you live and you learn.”

Pool eventually passed his conditioning test but worked with the second-team defense while Barry Church got snaps with the first team.

“I can control what I can control and that’s going out there and making plays when I’m out there and that’s what I hope when I’m out there,” Pool said.

During offseason workouts, Pool received snaps with the first-team defense, but things changed after Pool failed the test.
