The Dallas Cowboys released defensive end Everette Brown, guard Ray Dominguez, defensive tackle Corvey Irvin and guard Jeff Olson on Friday.

The team saved more than $2 million in salary for 2014, but less than $1 million in salary cap space. More moves need to be made for them get under the projected 2014 salary cap of $133 million. The Cowboys are roughly between $15-$20 million over the cap.

They need to be under the cap by March 11.

The team is weighing roster decisions with defensive end DeMarcus Ware, receiver Miles Austin and center Phil Costa to create more room.

The Cowboys could also create room by restructuring the contracts of quarterback Tony Romo, tight end Jason Witten, cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Orlando Scandrick and linebacker Sean Lee.

Brown appeared in seven games as a reserve and finished with seven tackles, one sack, two tackles for losses and four pressures.

Dominguez spent the 2013 season on the club's practice squad.

Irvin played in six games as a reserve and finished with five tackles, one pressure and a pass breakup.

Olson was injured and missed the entire season.
