The Dallas Cowboys signed defensive tackle Everett Dawkins. Dawkins (6'2,300 lbs) was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the seventh round of the 2013 draft out of Florida State.
He was a two-year starter at defensive tackle for Florida State. He collected five career sacks and 11 tackles for loss. Hopefully defensive line coach Rod Marinelli can continue working his magic on the Cowboys defensive line which is banged up tremendously.
The Cowboys also added two players to their practice squad, defensive lineman Hall Davis and offensive lineman Phillipkeith Manley.

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant missed practice today due to back stiffness but he plans on playing Sunday against the Saints.
Defensive tackle Jason Hatcher suffered nerve damage in the neck area and doesn't have enough strength in his arm to practice and could be out for the Saints game.
Treatment all day. Trying to get right for Sunday. Now about to sit in the rain and watch my son playoff game. Family1st— Jason Hatcher (@hatcher97) November 5, 2013
Defensive end DeMarcus Ware practiced for the first time since straining his quadriceps muscle.
