Cowboys Add Tank To Arsenal

By  | 

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The agent for Tank Johnson says the
suspended defensive lineman has signed with the Dallas Cowboys.
The former Chicago Bears standout can't play until midseason
because of an eight-game NFL suspension from a probation violation
on a gun charge that included a prison term. Johnson's agent,
Jerrold Colton, confirms the signing of a two-year contract.
The Cowboys have been looking for help at nose tackle since
starter Jason Ferguson was lost for the season to a torn right
biceps.
Johnson's signing comes after visiting the Cowboys and taking a
physical.
