Cowboys Make Roster Moves, Add Linebacker, Cut Safety

The ever-churning roster.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys made a couple of minor roster moves today as they continue to tinker with their 90-man roster. Surprisingly, the Cowboys went back to the well for another linebacker, adding Kyle Knox. To make room for the new linebacker, Dallas had to make a roster move and they released safety Keelan Johnson.

Knox played his college ball at Fresno State and was an undrafted free agent signed by the Seattle Seahawks after the 2012 draft. He never really caught on in Seattle and in 2013 he spent some time with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Last year he got into 12 games for the Saints. He spent most of his time playing special teams. He is 6' 1" and 220 pounds. He joins a crowded linebacker position for the Cowboys who are definitely looking at competition to create depth and solid special team players.

Keelan Johnson was a safety prospect the Cowboys signed to a reserve-future contract in January of 2015.
