Thin at outside linebacker after losing rookie Brandon Williams for the season to a knee injury, the Cowboys signed Tearrius George, who spent part of last season on the practice squad and was released by Miami earlier this week.
George had a productive preseason for the Cowboys in 2008 but was signed off their practice squad by New Orleans on Dec. 4. He signed with the Dolphins in February after he was cut by the Saints.
The Cowboys originally signed George after he had 33 tackles and eight sacks for the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL.
He will join Steve Octavien, Victor Butler and possibly Matt Stewart in the fight to claim one of the backup outside linebacker jobs in the final two weeks of training camp.
I remember the final preseaon game vs the Vikings last year, he made 3 tremendous plays in row on Bollinger and basically singlehandedly ended one of their drives. Showed a real flash. When I saw he'd been waived and after Williams' injury, I wondered if they might bring him back.
