Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

The Cowboys released wide receiver Andre Holmes on Saturday, who had caught two passes for 11 yards in 2012.

The Dallas Cowboys released wide receiver Andre Holmes on Saturday, according to Nick Eatman. The move frees up a roster spot for the 5-6 Cowboys.

Holmes, 24, caught two passes for the Cowboys in 2012, his first NFL season. He had a seven-yard reception in the Cowboys' loss to the Chicago Bears on Oct. 1 and a four-yard catch on Thursday against the Washington Redskins in what was seemingly his final game with Dallas.

Holmes was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Minnesota Vikings prior to the 2011 season. After being released during the first wave of preseason cuts, Holmes was signed to the Cowboys' practice squad.

A native of Hoffman Estates, Ill., Holmes attended college at Division II Hillsdale, where he caught 103 passes for more than 1,300 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior. After completing his college career, Holmes was invited to play in the Texas vs. The Nation college football all-star game.
