After suddenly finding themselves in need of a tight end, the Cowboys agreed to a one-year deal with former Chargers TE Dajleon Farr.
After injuries on Sunday to John Phillips (torn ACL), Scott Sicko (concussion) and Kevin Brock (ankle) and with a current, nagging injury to Martellus Bennett's ankle, the team signed Farr Tuesday.
Farr, who finished his college career with a slow year Memphis, signed with the Chargers earlier in the year but was released Aug. 2. Farr grew up in Texas, playing high school ball at Houston North Shore before starting his college career at Miami.
To make room for the roster addition, the Cowboys released Brock and WR Titus Ryan, who broke his thumb in the preseason game against the Bengals.
