Cowboys roster moves: Dallas works out 8 free agents on Wednesday

The Cowboys are making the most of their off time.

Dallas Cowboys executive Stephen Jones always says player acquisition is 24/7, 365, so the team using their off time to evaluate other players should not be a surprise. On Wednesday, Dallas held a workout for eight free agents at their facility.

While no names of real note are on the list, the Cowboys could be looking to fill a spot on their practice squad. In practice, New York Giants offensive lineman Shane Lemieux suffered a torn biceps and will be placed on injured reserve. In a corresponding move, the Giants have claimed guard/center Sean Harlow off Dallas’ practice squad.

Harlow was active for just one game this season but was brought on as added depth when Tyler Biadasz and Zack Martin dealt with injuries earlier in the season.

The Cowboys recently added Rashaan Evans to their practice squad after bringing in linebackers to work out last week, so we could hear news of another signing this week if there’s anyone who stands out from this group.
