With depth issues along the defensive line sticking out like a sore thumb, the Dallas Cowboys are close to bringing defensive end George Selvie in the fold, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Selvie was selected out of South Florida in the seventh round of the 2010 draft by the St. Louis Rams. After a season there, he moved on to short stints with the Carolina Panthers and the Jacksonville Jaguars. As a member of the Jags in 2012, Selvie recorded 15 tackles and a sack. He was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back in April, but was released just about a month later.
Pending a physical, Selvie will be signed by Dallas in the coming day.
In the team’s first practice session of training camp on Sunday, the Cowboys lost highly regarded reserve Tyrone Crawford for the year with a torn Achilles. Defensive end Anthony Spencer is out for the next three weeks as he undergoes arthroscopic knee surgery, and veteran defensive tackle Jay Ratliff is dealing with a strained hamstring.
