LB Signed by Cowboys After Two-Year Hiatus

Cowboys add veteran linebacker Matt Stewart.

The Dallas Cowboys announced Tuesday the team signed veteran linebacker Matt Stewart to a one-year contract.

Stewart is a seven-year veteran who played with Atlanta and Cleveland, though he has not played in the past two seasons. 

In 2005, Stewart headed to Cleveland.  In 2007, he missed the entire season with a torn shoulder muscle. He signed with the Arizona Cardinals in 2008, but was cut before the season began.

Stewart, 29, was originally drafted by the Falcons in 2001.  He played alongside Keith Brooking, whom Dallas signed Monday, and under Wade Phillips who was the defensive coordinator in Atlanta at the time.
