The Dallas Cowboys need help on the offensive line. Injuries and question marks plague the Cowboys on the line, but according to the team's official site, Dallas signed veteran Brian Waters on Sept. 3, and he might be exactly what they are looking for.
Dallas has been trying to sign Waters for two weeks now, but he rejected them before and it looked like he wouldn't sign at all. That all changed today when Dallas signed the big guard to a one-year deal. The base pay is $1.5 million, but he can make up to $3 million based on incentives.
Waters signed five days before the first Dallas game of the season, so there is a good chance he won't be ready for the New York Giants game, but he will be ready soon.
Brian Waters played for the Dallas Cowboys once before, signing with his home town team as an undrafted free agent 14 years ago. He was a fullback at the time, but went on to play on the offensive line and last played in 2011 for the New England Patriots.
Waters is a six-time Pro Bowl player who played for the Kansas City Chiefs for 10 seasons. He brings a lot of veteran leadership to a very young offensive line. Two of the starters are a rookie and a third-year first round draft pick. Waters will line up alongside these young players and hopefully teach them how to play hard.
To make room on the roster, the Dallas Cowboys moved safety Eric Frampton to the waived/injured list where they will probably give him a settlement.
