Cowboys free agent signings: A report that Dallas has signed tight end Codey McElroy

The Cowboys have made a deal for an outside free agent.

NFL: Los Angeles Rams-Training Camp Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Monday saw the official tampering window for free agency open, and many have been sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for the Dallas Cowboys to make some moves. Well, we’ve got a move!

Even though Jason Witten came out of retirement to re-join the Cowboys, you can never have enough tight ends. Dallas has signed Codey McElroy. He most recently spent some time in camp last year for the Los Angeles Rams. He attended college at Southeastern Oklahoma.

McElroy has taken quite the unique path to get to the NFL. He went undrafted last season, but he’s spent some time with a lot of different teams... including an MLB one.

  • High school baseball and basketball
  • JUCO baseball
  • University of Texas baseball
  • Drafted by the Atlanta Braves
  • Oklahoma State basketball
  • Southeastern Oklahoma football

We’ll see if the Cowboys decide to wade even further into the free agency waters. For now they have a brand new tight end to get excited about. Obviously they’re going to the Super Bowl.
