The Cowboys have signed a wide receiver who’s flashed some playmaking ability in his NFL career.

According to agent Erik Burkhardt, the Cowboys have reached a deal with Dezmon Briscoe, who’s hauled in 43 passes for 502 yards and seven touchdowns since entering the NFL in 2010.

A Dallas-area native, the 24-year-old Briscoe was with Washington last summer. The club waived-injured him with a shoulder ailment in August.

Briscoe has had NFL stints with Cincinnati (2010), Tampa Bay (2010-2012) and Washington (2012-2013). His best season came in 2011, when he caught 35 passes for 387 yards and six TDs for the Buccaneers.

Briscoe will compete for a reserve role with Dallas, which had 10 receivers before bringing him into the fold. The Cowboys begin training camp on Wednesday.
