With the Dallas Cowboys needing to cut $7 million in salary to get under the cap, they have made another cut. This time, the Cowboys have parted ways with inside linebacker Dan Connor in a move that saves around $3 million in cap space. Pro Football Talk was the first to report the news:
The Cowboys have released LB Dan Connor, per league source.

Connor is still a capable player and would be worth a look for teams that run a 3-4 defense and are in need of depth. Not only can Connor provide depth, but he would provide a very solid option as a No. 2 inside backer.
The former Penn State linebacker should generate moderate interest on the free agent market.
