Cowboys Sign Derrick Dockery To Replace Montrae Holland

The Cowboys cut Montrae Holland Sunday, but they didn’t stray far in finding his replacement. The club signed guard Derrick Dockery, who was cut Wednesday by the Redskins.

Like Holland, Dockery played his high school ball in Texas. Dockery, in fact, went to Lakeview Centennial in Garland. Unlike Holland, he stayed in state for college, attending the University of Texas. While Dockery never fit in Mike Shanahan’s mobile cut-blocking scheme (just like Holland), he’s more of an angular giant at 6’6". Holland is just 6’2" and outweighs Dockery.

Dockery, who will turn 31 this week, was owed $3.8 million by the Redskins, so the Cowboys are presumably getting him at a discount. He started 111 of his 117 career games for the Bills and Redskins after being drafted in the third round.

Meanwhile, Holland is back on the street after playing 14 and starting two games for the Cowboys last season.
