The Dallas Cowboys are expected to add veteran offensive tackle Demetress Bell to fill one of four open spots on the team’s 90-man roster.
Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports that Bell is expected to join the mix as a potential swing tackle. The team had been in talks with him after the Philadelphia Eagles cut him in a cap move in February as it was uncertain how the Doug Free situation would play out.
Bell joined the Eagles last year after Jason Peters was lost to injury, signing a $35 million, five-year contract. He started only five games but has ample starting experience from his days with the Buffalo Bills. Bell can be a credible backup on both sides of the line.
Per Archer, the Cowboys are also expected to add quarterback Alex Tanney and wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei.
