Jay Ratliff is no longer a member of the Dallas Cowboys.

The team ended the year-long suspense for the defensive tackle on Wednesday by officially terminating the contract of Ratliff placing him on the failed physical list from Reserve/PUP (Physically Unable to Perform).

Ratliff has dealt with a groin injury since last year when he underwent sports hernia surgery. The defensive tackle reported to training camp and suffered a hamstring injury in the conditioning run. He stayed with the team through camp but was eventually placed on PUP. He was eligible to come off PUP this week and while Jerry Jones and the Cowboys have stayed mum on the situation the decision was made Wednesday afternoon to cut ties with eight-year veteran.
