IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – The Dallas Cowboys have officially released veteran CB Terence Newman on Tuesday. The announcement came after 3:00 p.m., the official start of NFL free agency.

Newman, who went to the Pro Bowl in 2007 and 2009, started 131 of his 133 games after the Cowboys took him with the fifth overall pick in 2003 out of Kansas State. He leaves with 558 career tackles and 32 interceptions.

The move was made to help the Cowboys gain salary cap relief and to upgrade the cornerback position during free agency.

The team also announced they released kicker David Buehler. Buehler was primarily a kickoff specialist for the Cowboys, but missed most of last season with a groin injury.
