FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have released defensive tackle Antwaun Woods less than a week after drafting two potential replacements for a starter from each of the past three seasons. Woods' release won’t cost anything against the salary cap. The Cowboys focused heavily on defense in the draft after last year's unit was one of the worst in franchise history. The club hopes rookies can replace higher-priced veterans. Woods is the first example. Dallas drafted a pair of defensive tackles in UCLA’s Osa Odighizuwa and Quinton Bohanna of Kentucky.
