The Dallas Cowboys released punter Chris Jones after 10 seasons with the team.
Jones had one year left on the four-year, $8.7 million extension he signed in 2017. The move saves the Cowboys $2 million in cap space.
Jones, 31, was on injured reserve for the final eight games of 2020 after abdominal surgery.
He joined the Cowboys in 2011 and had been the full-time punter since 2013, appearing in 126 games and averaging 44.5 yards per punt.
The veteran’s release leaves 2020 newcomer Hunter Niswander as the only punter on the Dallas roster. He averaged 47.2 yards per punt in eight games after replacing Jones.
