With little cap room to work with, the Dallas Cowboys have largely stayed out of the free agent market, signing three defensive players, only one of whom--defensive tackle Henry Melton--really made any headlines. But that doesn’t mean they’re done making moves for the year, as evidenced by the their apparent interest in veteran guard Davin Joseph.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Joseph has already met with the Cowboys.
A University of Oklahoma product product, Joseph has spent all of his eight seasons in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team that drafted him 23rd overall back in 2006. He’s been to two Pro Bowls, in 2008 and 2011.
If the Cowboys are able to sign Joseph--who would come in and compete for a starting job--the move will be reminiscent of their signing of veteran guard Brian Waters a year ago. Waters flourished in Dallas before suffering a season-ending triceps injury, and has been credited with bringing some toughness to the offensive line, a toughness that remained evident after he was hurt.
Joseph has also met with the New York Giants.
