Roster update: Cowboys bringing in guard help with Xavier Su’a-Filo

There’s a new guard in town.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys could use some help along the interior of the offensive line, and they’ve gone out and gotten some. A former second-round pick is joining the bunch.

You might remember that Xavier Su’a-Filo went just one pick before the Cowboys traded up to select DeMarcus Lawrence in the 2014 NFL Draft. Many beleived that Xavier’s athleticism would translate over from his college days at UCLA, but he has yet to make an impact at the professional level.

Su’a-Filo started all but one game for the Houston Texans over the last two years, but they didn’t bring him back for a fifth season with the team. Since then Xavier has had a cup of coffee with the Tennessee Titans, but they released him back during the finalization of 53-man rosters.

Su’a-Filo played right guard for the Texans during his rookie season back in 2014, but ever since then he’s been a left guard. The Cowboys have their own rookie at left guard in Connor Williams... is this signing an indication that they aren’t exactly pleased there right now? Williams struggled through the preseason and didn’t exactly have a glowing first game as a professional.

We’ll have to wait and see.
