The Cowboys stuck with kicker Greg Zuerlein for all of last season despite some rough moments, but he won’t be sticking around for the start of the new league year.

The team announced that they have released Zuerlein on Friday. They also waived tight end Blake Jarwin with an injury designation.

Zuerlein’s release saves the team just over $2.485 million in cap space as they work to get in compliance by next week. Zuerlein was 29-of-35 on field goals and 42-of-48 on extra points in the regular season. He made all three kicks he tried in a Wild Card round loss to the 49ers.

Jarwin had hip surgery recently and his departure clears just over $3.852 million in cap room.

  1. But so long as they have Prescott and Elliott, they’ll be in contention! For something… not sure what, it hasn’t really added up to anything much yet.

  2. Once you drop a few mega deals the rest of the team suffers. That’s how the salary cap is supposed to work. Parity.

  3. He has the ability and the leg to kick 60 yarders with no problem, yet extra points are a total crapshoot, the extra points played a significant role in at least two losses
