The Dallas Cowboys made a roster move on Tuesday, by releasing one rookie pass-rusher, and then signing another.

According to David Helman of DallasCowboys.com, the Cowboys have released undrafted free agent defensive end Jason Neill and then proceeded to ink former SMU defensive end Zach Wood on the first day of OTAs.

Many believed the Cowboys had hit it big with a supposed "hidden gem" in Neill who was one of the best fourth quarter players in the nation with the UTSA Roadrunners. In his senior year, the defensive end collected 56 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss and 8.5 sacks.

The Cowboys apparently thought Wood was a better fit. The 6-foot-3, 282-pound pass rusher played in 10 games last year while collecting 39 tackles, 9.5 tackles for a loss and 3.5 sacks. Wood had attended Cowboys rookie minicamp as a tryout prospect and can also double up as a long snapper.
