The Dallas Cowboys added a new face to the defensive line this week because of course they did.
On Tuesday, Corvey Irvin became the sixth defensive lineman brought into the fold for the Cowboys in the past five weeks. A third round pick out of Georgia back in 2009, Irvin spent the first two seasons of his career with the Panthers. He played for the Lions and Jaguars in 2011, the Buccaneers in 2012 and was invited to camp with the Bears this year.
In 18 career games, Irvin has 11 tackles.
“I think as much as anything else, we like his athleticism but he has a little bit more size than some of the other guys,” head coach Jason Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “I think that’s an important trait that we need right now. Our guys are doing their best to bring guys in who can help our team. I think they’ve done a really good job of that. I think our coaches have done a great job of coaching them up. This is a guy we think athletically fits into what we’re doing and maybe gives us a little more size in there to help us be a little sturdier there on the defensive line.”
