DallasCowboys.com is reporting that the Cowboys added two more players to their reserve/future list today. Defensive tackle Nick Hayden and guard Charlie Bryant are the 20th and 21st players respectively that have signed a futures contract so far this offseason.
It's no secret that the Cowboys have needs along both lines, and if nothing else, throwing more bodies into the mix improves the Cowboys' chances of perhaps finding a player or two who can stick.
DT Nick Hayden was drafted by Carolina in the sixth round (181st overall) in 2008 and played 28 games, including 13 starts, for the Panthers from 2008-10. He spent 2011 with the Bengals before reaching an injury settlement after an ankle injury at the end of training camp in 2012.
The 6-4, 300-pound Hayden joins a group of defensive tackles that are deep in quantity but may be thin in quality. The status of Jay Ratliff and Josh Brent is up in the air, and it's not clear how much Sean Lissemore and Rob Calloway can bring to the table. Hayden joins three other DTs already signed to futures contracts (Brian Price, Monte Taylor and Ikponmwosa Igbinosun).
