Cowboys release DE Caesar Rayford, sign DT Corvey Irvin

The Cowboys likely soon will play their 17th defensive lineman of the season after signing defensive tackle Corvey Irvin to the active roster.

Dallas released defensive end Caesar Rayford to make room for Irvin. Rayford, who was acquired in a trade from the Colts on Sept. 3, had six tackles and one pressure in seven games.
Irvin, a third-round pick of the Panthers in 2009 out of Georgia, has played in 18 games with three teams, including 12 with the Bucs this season. He has 11 career tackles, including six this season.
The Cowboys also made moves on their practice squad. They released guard Phillipkeith Manley and defensive tackle Jason Vega. They signed offensive tackle John Wetzel to the practice squad. Wetzel, who was an undrafted rookie signed by the Raiders after the 2013 draft, has been out of football since he was released by Oakland on Aug. 24.
Irvin and Wetzel were among 16 players the Cowboys worked out Tuesday. Veteran safety Michael Huff also worked out.
The Cowboys have one open roster spot on the practice squad.
