Cowboys sign nine players
By Calvin Watkins
The Cowboys signed nine players to their reserve/future list on Monday.
Wide receiver Anthony Armstrong, who spent some time with the team this season before getting released, will get another look. Tight end Colin Cochart, who was claimed off waivers before getting cut in September, was also brought back.
Wide receiver Carlton Mitchell, who has three career catches, all with the Cleveland Browns, guard Ray Dominguez, wide receiver Jared Green, long snapper Charley Hughlett, linebacker Cameron Sheffield, tackle Aderious Simmons and cornerback Brandon Underwood were also picked up.
Of these players, Hughlett might have the best chance of making the team. The Cowboys long snapper, LP Ladouceur, becomes a free agent in March and Hughlett spent time with the team in training camp. He could become the long snapper if the team elects to go elsewhere.
Another interesting signing involves Green, the son of former Washington Redskins cornerback and Hall of Famer Darrell Green.
