The Dallas Cowboys Sign a Former Pro-Bowler to Help Bolster Their Ailing Offensive Line

The Dallas Cowboys have signed free agent offensive lineman Brian Waters to help out their ailing offensive line.  He hasn’t played a down of football since 2011 when he was with the New England Patriots.  Waters(Pictured on the Right) joined the team on Sept. 3 and played in 85 percent of the Patriots’ offensive snaps in a win over Miami.

The deal was reportedly worth up to $1.5 million in base salary, but Waters can earn up to $3 million total based on play-time incentives.  Both of last year’s starters, Nate Livings and Makenzy Bernadeau, have been battling injuries this off-season which has forced Dallas to make this move.  Ron Leary is still a viable option even though he has never taken a regular season snap.

Reports do indicate that Waters will not be ready for Sunday’s season opener against the New York Giants, but should make his debut against his former team, the Kansas City Chiefs, in week two.  One thing is for sure, if the Cowboys don’t sure up their offensive line issues, they can expect this season to go much like it did last year.
