IRVING, Texas - The Dallas Cowboys are releasing veteran defensive tackle Marcus Spears.

The move Wednesday was designated for June 1, when it will save the Cowboys $2 million against the salary cap.

Spears, who turned 30 last week, was the second of two first-round picks after DeMarcus Ware in 2005.

The move means the Cowboys are mostly considering younger options on their roster as they add an interior defensive lineman in a switch from the 3-4 to the 4-3.

Spears had 314 tackles in eight seasons, including a career-high 65 in 2008. He played in 88 straight games to start his career before a calf injury sidelined him in 2010.
