Looking for help at offensive tackle, the Dallas Cowboys worked out veteran Ross Verba on Monday.
Verba, 31, played four seasons (2001-04) in Cleveland and started 47 regular season games and one playoff contest for the Browns. He missed the entire 2003 season after suffering a right bicep tendon injury in the final preseason game vs. Atlanta (Aug. 28, 2003).
Originally selected by Green Bay in the first round (30th overall) in the 1997 NFL Draft, Verba has played eight NFL seasons with the Packers (1997-2000) and Browns (2001-04).
He was signed by Cleveland as an unrestricted free agent on March 23, 2001.
The Cowboys were reportedly less than impressed with today's workout session. However, with one roster spot still open, the team will continue to look for available options.
One possibility is Marc Colombo, who worked out with the team in October after Flozell Adams went down with a season ending injury.
The team could announce a move on Colombo, or another offensive tackle, as soon as Tuesday.
