The Cowboys signed Tyronne Williams yesterday to try and bolster their secondary, after it was learned that starting cornerback Pete Hunter would be lost for the year earlier this week.
However there are legitimate questions on whether Williams has anything left in the tank.
He signed with the Falcons last season after a strong seven years in Green Bay. However, he started only six games before being suspended for one game for conduct detrimental to the team and then was deactivated for the final nine games of the season. Williams wasn't great when he was in there and he was on the street three weeks into the season before the Cowboys called.
"If a couple of more weeks had gone by, that's what I was going to do," Williams told reporters. "It was looking bleak. It was a blessing to get a call from the Cowboys."
Other moves announced by the club on Thursday include the signing of running back Keylon Kincade and cornerback Lenny Williams to the practice squad. Guard Thomas Herrion and running back Derrick Knight were released from the practice squad.
Also practice squad linebacker Ryan Fowler has been temporarily moved to fullback.
