After being inactive for the first two games, Taco Charlton has asked the Dallas Cowboys to release him.

The Cowboys have had trade discussions for Charlton, a first-round pick in 2017, but nothing that has gotten close, according to a source.

The defensive end is guaranteed his $1.376 million base salary this season and $458,000 of his base salary next season.

"We are not getting into that at all in any way," Jerry Jones said Sunday. "I know there is some discussion. We don't get into that."
