Greg Zuerlein

The Cowboys will create $2,485,294 in cap space by releasing Zuerline and incur $333,334 in dead money, per OverTheCap. 

Regarding Jarwin, he was not expected to be available for the start of the 2022 season due to a hip injury that required surgery in late February. 

Calvin Watkins added the surgery has only been done on hockey and baseball players, not football players.  

Zuerlein, 33, is a former six-round pick of the Rams back in 2012. He played eight seasons for the Rams and just finished out the final year of his three-year, $6.75 million contract that included $2.375 million guaranteed when the Rams allowed him to leave in free agency. 

Zuerlein signed a three-year, $7.5 million deal with the Cowboys and was entering the final year of his deal. 

In 2021, Zuerlein appeared in 16 games and converted 29 field goals on 35 attempts (82.9 percent), to go along with 42 of 48 extra point attempts (87.5 percent). 

Jarwin, 27, signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State back in 2017. He joined their practice squad coming out of the preseason his rookie year and was promoted to their active roster shortly after. 

The Cowboys signed Jarwin to a three-year, $24.25 million extension last March that included $9.25 million guaranteed.

In 2021, Jarwin appeared in eight games for the Cowboys and caught 11 passes for 96 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
