The Dallas Cowboys have added another player to the defensive line, signing former Seattle Seahawk defensive end Ken Boatright to a two year deal Friday afternoon according to his agent. Boatright tweeted out this message in response to his signing.
I am looking forward to starting my next chapter with @dallascowboys. So grateful to have a second chance to play the game I love.

The Cowboys are looking to add to the competition along the defensive front after rookie DeMarcus Lawrence suffered a broken foot earlier this week. Anthony Spencer, Ben Bass, Terrell McClain and Amobi Okoye are also all out with injuries.
The 6-3 254 lbs. Boatright was an undrafted free agent out of Southern Illinois University in 2013 and spent part of last year on the Seahawks but was released back in June.
Acording to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, The cowboys could also move to add defensive end Adewale Ojomo. In order for the cowboys to make any moves though, they are going to have to make a few roster moves. Ojomo is 6’4 270 lbs. and was an undrafted free agent in 2012 and has played with the Giants, Seahawks, Bills and Titans.
The Cowboys have the day off and will get back to things on Saturday in preparation for Sunday’s Blue and White scrimmage.
