Cowboys fill roster spot with Jerome Long

The Cowboys pulled the plug on the Anthony Hargrove experiment last week, and now they’ve replaced him with someone deemed unfit to be a Jaguar.

According to Todd Archer of, the Cowboys signed defensive lineman Jerome Long to take Hargrove’s roster spot.

Long was in their rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, but wasn’t signed immediately. Long was picked in the seventh round in 2012 by the Chiefs, and was signed off KC’s practice squad by the Jaguars last year. But the Jags cut him in April.

That gives the Cowboys 13 defensive linemen on their 90-man roster, as they look high and low for parts for their shift to a 4-3 defense.
