The roster action continues for the Dallas Cowboys. Reports indicate the Cowboys put in a waiver claim for former New York Giant Kyle Bosworth and were awarded the player.
Hearing that the Cowboys put in a claim for LB Kyle Bosworth from NYG and were awarded him. He is a 3 year vet from UCLA.— Bryan Broaddus (@BryanBroaddus) September 1, 2013
At the same time, the Cowboys lost out on the services of UDFA Brandon Magee, who was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Browns.
From what I am also hearing is they lost Brandon Magee LB to CLE. Magee had a shot at a practice squad spot if he cleared.— Bryan Broaddus (@BryanBroaddus) September 1, 2013
The Giants caused some consternation among the Giants beat writers and the Giants fans when they unexpectedly cut Bosworth yesterday. Bosworth had been a standout on special teams in the preseason, and that will likely be his role in Dallas.
Bosworth was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2010, where he spent his rookie season on injured reserve. He played in 9 games for the Jaguars in 2011 and 16 in 2012 before being signed by the Giants in May this year. In his last year in Jacksonville, Bosworth played 272 (58%) snaps on special teams and 250 (22%) on defense. He is also the nephew of former NFL linebacker, Brian Bosworth.
Brandon Magee was a likely candidate for the Cowboys practice squad, but now moves up onto the Browns' 53-man roster.
