The Cowboys make their second free agent strike, signing former Jaguars LB Akin Ayodele to a five year $17 million contract. The 26 year old Ayodele continues Dallas' early interest in younger players just entering their prime years. The 6'2", 251 lb. Ayodele fits the big backer philosophy Bill Parcells wants and right now leaves Dallas with four potential starters all over 240 lbs.
Ayodele takes the roster spot vacated by Scott Fujita who signed with the Saints today.
