The Cowboys signed supplemental seventh rounder Josh Brent, a defensive lineman from Illinois, Thursday. Calvin Watkins:
The Cowboys have high hopes for Brent who is competing for a backup nose tackle spot with Junior Siavii. Brent, according to several scouts, has an excellent body and has shown some power when getting to the pass rusher. However, his off the field issues, kicked off the team for grades and had a DUI causes some concern with several teams.
Brent received a four year deal.
