Source: Cowboys release Stephen McGee

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys released No. 3 quarterback Stephen McGee on Saturday, one day after keeping him on the 53-man roster, according to a source.

McGee, a former Texas A&M quarterback, had been with the team since 2009.

The Cowboys have just two quarterbacks on the roster, Tony Romo and Kyle Orton.
