Cowboys sign ex-Jet Brodney Pool

Free agent safety Brodney Pool is heading to Dallas.

Pool has signed with the Cowboys, head coach Jason Garrett told reporters this morning.

After the Browns took him in the second round of the 2005 NFL draft, Pool left for the Jets in 2010 and played the last two years there.

Pool already knows the Dallas D because Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was the Browns’ defensive coordinator in 2009, and because Ryan runs a similar scheme to that of his brother Rex Ryan, the Jets’ head coach.

Last season Pool played 14 games for the Jets, starting six.
