Cowboys officially sign S Malik Hooker to contract

The Dallas Cowboys added secondary depth on Tuesday by signing safety Malik Hooker to a contract.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed for Hooker, who worked out on the field Tuesday at Oxnard, Calif.

The Cowboys placed offensive tackle Mitch Hyatt (knee) on injured reserve to open a roster spot for Hooker.

Hooker, 25, sustained a season-ending Achilles injury late in the second quarter of the Indianapolis Colts’ 28-11 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sept. 20.

The Colts selected Hooker, an Ohio State product, with the No. 15 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. He also sustained a season-ending injury in his rookie season when he tore an ACL in Week 7.

Hooker recorded 124 tackles, 11 passes broken up and seven interceptions in 36 games (35 starts) with the Colts, who declined to pick up his fifth-year, $6.77 million option for 2021.
