The Cowboys make a free agency move to bolster the defensive line.
The Dallas Cowboys have been extremely patient when it comes to this offseason’s free agency period. They’ve been more focused on taking care of their own as they’ve brought back both Jamize Olawale and Cameron Fleming (oh and Jason Witten, no big deal).
Dallas has finally struck outside of The Star in Frisco (no disrespect intended to Codey McElroy). With needs on the defensive line the Cowboys are bringing in a veteran who won’t have to travel very far, he’ll be staying in the Lone Star State. Welcome aboard, Christian Covington!
Former #Texans DL Christian Covington is signing with the #Cowboys for 1 season, source said.

The Houston Texans drafted Covington back in the sixth round in 2015. He has 7.5 sacks to his name, you might remember him being featured on the Hard Knock series that chronicled the Texans. There was a point where he went back to his alma mater, Rice, and was celebrated for making the team.
