IRVING (AP) –– The Dallas Cowboys have released safety Gerald Sensabaugh to clear more room under the salary cap.

Sensabaugh, a four-year starter for the Cowboys, sent a tweet Monday saying he had been released for cap purposes.

The team reported on its website that the move saves $1.4 million under the cap, and the Cowboys avoid paying his $3 million salary in 2013.

Sensabaugh signed as a free agent in Dallas 2009 and was a solid if not spectacular presence in their secondary. He missed two games in four years and led the team with a career-high five interceptions in 2010.

The Cowboys have cleared more than $20 million in cap space since last week.
