The Cowboys have cut wide receiver Anthony Armstrong to free up more salary cap space so that they could officially sign free agent safety Will Allen to a one-year deal, according to a source.

By cutting Armstrong and restructuring the contract of backup quarterback Kyle Orton on Wednesday the Cowboys freed up about $1 million in salary cap space to make room for the free agent signings of Allen and linebacker Justin Durant. Durant signed a two-year contract. Both visited the Cowboys at Valley Ranch on Monday.

Free agent safety Michael Huff also visited Valley Ranch on Monday, but on Wednesday the Baltimore Ravens announced they had agreed to terms with the former standout from Irving Nimitz and the University of Texas. Huff will sign a three-year, $6 million contract.
