3:44pm: The Cowboys have officially released Brown, the team announced in a press release.
1:36pm: The Cowboys will release defensive lineman Everette Brown, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (Twitter link). While the move won’t leave any dead money on the Cowboys’ cap, the savings will be minimal, since Brown had been slated to earn the minimum salary ($730K).
Brown, a former second-round pick, saw 159 snaps for the Cowboys in 2013 as a backup defensive end. The 26-year-old Florida State product recorded one sack and forced a fumble in his seven regular-season contests with the team.
While every little bit of flexibility will come in handy for the Cowboys this offseason, this move will be one of the team’s more minor cap-saving maneuvers. Dallas will create $235K of cap savings with Brown’s release.
