Cowboys Sign TE Cochart, Get Everyone They Wanted Onto The Practice Squad

Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?

Busy day at Valley Ranch so far. After Friday's cuts that left many Cowboys fans scratching their heads, the Cowboys went out and signed themselves an extra tight end, signed eight players to their practice squad and released quarterback Stephen McGee.

The Cowboys claimed TE Colin Cochart (6-4, 260) off waivers from the Bengals and added him to the 53-man roster. To compensate for the roster move, the Cowboys cut ties with 2009 draft pick Stephen McGee. Cochart started three games for the Bengals last year and played in 10. Cochart is considered primarily a blocker, and only caught five passes for 44 yards and one touchdown in last year.

The Cowboys signed eight players to their practice squad. None of the Cowboys' Friday cuts were picked up off waivers by other teams, so the practice squad is made up entirely of players the Cowboys had in camp: WR Danny Coale, LB Orie Lemon, RB Lance Dunbar, RB Jamize Olawale, DT Robert Callaway, DE Ben Bass, WR Tim Benford and G Ron Leary.
