IRVING, Texas – Defensive end Lavar Edwards will practice for the first time with the Dallas Cowboys on Monday after he was acquired Saturday from the Tennessee Titans for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2015. Jason Garrett will explain how Edwards will fit in the Cowboys' scheme, but NFL Nation Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky was brought in to offer something of a scouting report. Archer: The Cowboys need defensive line help, especially pass rushers.
IRVING, Texas -- Safety C.J. Spillman has agreed to sign with the Dallas Cowboys, a source said. Spillman, 28, a special teams player who was credited with a career-high 25 tackles last season, was cut Saturday by the San Francisco 49ers. He played 59 games for the 49ers over the last four seasons after beginning his career with the San Diego Chargers, where he played for Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia. Spillman’s knowledge of the 49ers’ schemes could be useful to the Cowboys as they prepare for their season opener against San Francisco.
IRVING, Texas -- Linebacker Korey Toomer will sign with the Dallas Cowboys after he cleared waivers. The Cowboys have to make a move to create a roster spot before Toomer's addition becomes official. The 6-foot-2, 234-pound Toomer, a fifth-round pick in 2012, was one of the Seattle Seahawks' final cuts. He has yet to play in an NFL regular-season game, getting put on the practice squad in 2012 before going on injured reserve and spending last season on the non-football injury list.
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys added to their practice squad Sunday with five players who were among Saturday's final cuts. Running back Ryan Williams, who led the Cowboys in rushing in the preseason, cleared waivers and agreed to rejoin the practice squad. The new practice-squad rules gave Williams, who played in only five games in three years with the Arizona Cardinals, more eligibility. The Cowboys also added defensive end Kenneth Boatright, linebacker Will Smith, linebacker Keith Smith and center Ronald Patrick, who were among their final cuts.
