Eight-year veteran Chad Eaton, who played under coach Bill Parcells at New England, has signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys.
Eaton signed a free-agent contract with the Seattle Seahawks before the 2001 season after five outstanding years with the Patriots. He started 32 consecutive games in Seattle before missing all of last season with a knee injury.
That knee injury required four surgeries to repair.
The Seahawks released him in late February, with one year remaining on his original four-year deal, which was worth $10.7 million.
Eaton currently stands in at 6-foot-5, and weighs 303 pounds.
Eaton will come to Dallas looking to provide help up front, and in particular, in stopping the run.
Head coach Bill Parcells expressed concern with his current tackles yesterday. "Yeah, I'm a little concerned there," Parcells said. "We haven't done as well as I would've liked. But we'll see how it goes. We've still got some time to fix things."
