The Cowboys continued an offseason of low-profile and low-budget signings, replacing their backup center-guard.

According to a tweet from his agent, the Cowboys signed former Titans offensive lineman Joe Looney to a two-year deal.

Looney visited yesterday along with defensive end Jason Jones, though there’s no word of a deal with him yet.

Looney’s a like-for-like replacement for Mackenzy Bernadeau, as the previous Cowboys backup center/guard signed with the Jaguars. He started six games for the Titans last year, after getting four starts in three seasons with the 49ers.

The Cowboys have also signed defensive tackle Cedric Thornton, defensive end Benson Mayowa and running back Alfred Morris so far, filling some lines on the depth chart but hardly addressing their biggest needs.

    What big addressing needs do they have?

    Other than DB I would say they are filling a lot of their needs. They needed more DL, they got it. They needed help a RB, they got it. They needed depth at OL, they got that to. I wouldn’t mind seeing them take another DE in the draft or the aforementioned DB help as well, in either the draft or FA.
