The Dallas Cowboys agreed to terms with second-year defensive lineman Jeris Pendleton (seen here laying into Dolphins' quarterback Ryan Tannehill), Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reported on Tuesday. Pendleton is expected to be ready for this week’s mandatory veteran mini-camp.
Cornerback Malik James was released in order to make room for the new pick-up. James was signed back in May after going undrafted out of Langston University. James also played for Cincinnati and Nevada during his college career.
A product of Joliet Junior College and Ashland University, Pendleton was drafted in the seventh round of the 2012 Draft, 228th overall, by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He went on to appear in four games for the Jags, recording four tackles.
