With left tackle Flozell Adams expected to be placed on injured reserve on Wednesday after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament against the Giants, the Dallas Cowboys agreed to terms with seven-year veteran Ethan Brooks, who last played with the Ravens, for depth purposes on Tuesday.
Adams had previously played in all 118 games of his career since joining the
Cowboys in 1998.
Brooks was signed after several offensive linemen worked out for the team at Valley Ranch.
The 6-6, 330 pound utility lineman is a seven-year NFL veteran who has spent time with the Falcons, Cardinals, Rams, and most recently the Baltimore Ravens.
He has played in 75 career games, making 26 starts in his career. He can also play multiple positions.
Brooks was orginally a seventh-round draft selection by the Falcons out of Williams College in 1996. He then moved on to play for the St. Louis Rams from 1997-1999, the Cardinals during the 2000 season, and then the Ravens from 2002-2004.
He was signed by the New York Jets in May before being released near the end of training camp. He started seven games for the Ravens last season.
Brooks is expected to practice with the team today.
