Recently dumped by Dallas, Mayowa will look to make the most of his opportunity with Arizona this summer. As of now, Mayowa figures to be able to carve out a depth pass-rushing role should he take advantage of the opportunity. The 26-year-old provides a nice balance of experience and potential as he heads to the desert.
The Cowboys released Mayowa (back) on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
The 26-year-old was set to enter the final season of his three-year, $8.25 million contract, a price Dallas wasn't willing to pay for a rotational end who struggled to make an impact in 2017. Though he saw his sack total drop from six in 2016 to just one a season ago, Mayowa's extensive experience in his five NFL campaigns shouldn't make it too difficult for him to find work somewhere this offseason.
Mayowa started the week as a limited participant but was unable to practice Thursday and Friday. Taco Charlton and Datone Jones should serve as the Cowboys' reserve defensive ends for Sunday's season finale.
Mayowa is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks with a back injury, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Mayowa did not practice Wednesday and Thursday but was able to put in a limited session Friday. The 26-year-old is slated for his usual reserve role in the Cowboys' defensive line rotation if able to suit up Sunday.
