The Cowboys are adding depth to their defensive line. The club has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with free-agent defensive lineman Christian Covington, a part-time starter in the Texans’ rotation since 2015.

Covington played defensive end in Houston’s 3-4 rotation, but the 300-pounder is likely a better fit at tackle in the Cowboys’ 4-3 scheme.

Covington grew up in Vancouver but played college football at Rice in Houston. The Texans drafted him in the sixth round in 2015. He appeared in 50 games (nine starts) over four seasons, posting 65 tackles, 7.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
