Scrambling for some much-needed depth in the secondary ahead of the preseason opener with the San Diego Chargers on Thursday, the Dallas Cowboys have signed cornerback Korey Lindsey and Johnny Thomas, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Dallas made room for the pair by cutting injured cornerback Dashaun Phillips and linebacker Joe Windsor.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne has already been ruled out for Thursday with tendinitis in his forearm, Sterling Moore is looking doubtful with a groin issue, and Brandon Carr will remain away from the team following the passing of his mother until this weekend. Safeties Barry Church (ankle), Matt Johnson (hamstring) and Jakar Hamilton (concussion) will not play.
Lindsey, 25, was picked by the Bengals out of Southern Illinois in the seventh round of the 2011 draft, and has spent time with Cincy, the Cardinals, the Colts, the Jaguars, the Redskins and the Saints.
Thomas, 24, went undrafted out of Oklahoma State and spent time with the Saints in 2012.
Neither Lindsey or Thomas has ever appeared in a regular season game.
