IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver Miles Austin on Wednesday, designating it as a June 1 cut.

By releasing the eight-year veteran, the Cowboys will save about $5.5 million in salary cap space, money they likely will use to sign this year’s draft picks.

Austin joined Dallas as an undrafted free agent in 2006. He was a reserve receiver and a kick return specialist for three seasons, but in 2009 became a regular. He set a Cowboys record with 250 yards receiving in his first start, an NFL record. Austin finished that season with 1,320 yards and made the Pro Bowl.

In 2010, he started all 16 games for the only time in his career and made his second Pro Bowl.

But injuries have plagued him since, and he started only eight times and missed five games in 2013 because of recurring hamstring problems.
