Mayowa tallied two tackles and one sack during Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
Mayowa came up with a big sack on quarterback Patrick Mahomes, but he otherwise didn't do much to help stop the Chiefs' high-powered offense. That sack also marked his first since Week 2, and since that point, Mayowa has been averaging just 2.7 tackles per game. In other words, don't look to him for IDP production.
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.
