Safety Will Allen has been released by the Dallas Cowboys.

Allen, a 10-season veteran, started the first two games this year before being replaced as the starter by rookie J.J. Wilcox.

Allen had 17 tackles, two pass breakups and an interception in his five games for Dallas. He had played for defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia in Tampa Bay.

The Cowboys signed Allen as an unrestricted free agent in March from Pittsburgh, where he spent the last three seasons after six seasons in Tampa Bay.

There was no immediate corresponding move Tuesday, leaving the Cowboys with an open roster spot.
