COWBOYS ROSTER UPDATE: Dallas signs DL and WR; Cohen & Coale released

IRVING, Texas –  The Dallas Cowboys have signed defensive tackle David Carter to the 53-man roster, replacing the spot of Landon Cohen, who was waived Tuesday. Cohen was active for both games this year, registering one tackle.

Carter (6-5, 300) has played in 32 games for the Cardinals, all 16 in each of his two seasons after being a sixth-round pick in 2012 out of UCLA.

Carter is expected to play both end and tackle in the 4-3 scheme. He’s played in hybrid defenses in the past. 

In his career, he has four starts, 18 tackles and one sack, with two pressures and a forced fumble.

The Cowboys also signed wide receiver Jamar Newsome to the practice squad. He replaces Danny Coale, who was waived. Coale, a fifth-round pick in 2012, never played in a regular-season game.

Newsome, a standout at Central Florida, was on the Chiefs’ practice squad in 2012 for most of the year, but did play in eight games with two starts in 2011 with Jacksonville. He has five career catches for 73 yards.

Newsome and Carter were two of six players the Cowboys worked out on Tuesday. The team also looked at cornerbacks Ryan Steed, Junior Mertile and Peyton Thompson, along with wide receiver Dwight Jones.
