Looking for rushers, Cowboys give Martez Wilson a shot

The Saints spent the offseason picking up former Cowboys to help flesh out a new defense.

Now the Cowboys are returning the favor.

According to Carlos Mendez of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys have signed linebacker Martez Wilson, with hopes he can play some defensive end.

The former third-round pick of the Saints out of Illinois was cut after four games this year. An elbow injury in training camp set him back, and he never delivered on his pass-rush potential with the Saints. He spent three weeks with the Raiders but was released again last week.

The Cowboys cut defensive tackle Everett Dawkins to make room for him on the roster.

    Losing Tyronne Crawford in camp really did more damage than I thought

    Pass rushers? This defense is allowing 5.1 ypc to opposing runningbacks and you want pass rushers? Lol yes their pass defense is 31st in the NFL, but…but…but….ahhh who the hell am I fooling? Even if Randy White and Charles Haley came back, they’d still find a way to screw it up

    Wow it’s surprising that this guy couldn’t catch on with anyone. I guess the fire doesn’t burn as strong for him as it once did.
    Going to Dallas isn’t going to help. Any defensive player going to Dallas at this point needs to be closely monitored and kept away from sharp objects.
