In their quest to shore up the interior offensive line, the Dallas Cowboys signed guard Nate Livings a couple weeks ago, a 16-game starter for the Cincinnati Bengals in each of the last two seasons.
Seeing as he’s an offensive guard who most recently played for the Bengals, a good deal of folks around town are wondering whether he was a good pick-up.
According to Cincinnati’s head coach Marvin Lewis, the answer is a resounding “yes.” Lewis said this week that the Bengals wanted to re-sign Livings, but that for one reason or another, they couldn’t get a deal worked out. But despite his departure, Lewis has nothing but good things to say about the man who went undrafted out of LSU in 2006.
"We had a lot of irons in the fire and I think it just didn’t work out," said Lewis, per ESPN Dallas. "Nate is a guy who really earned his opportunity. He came in as an undrafted free agent and is a hard working physical guy who did it the right way."
