Peprah, a Plano native, started last season for Green Bay but was cut on the eve of training camp. Peprah came in for a workout last month, at which time the Cowboys signed Eric Frampton. But Peprah joined the roster today, with punter Chris Jones (knee) sliding to the injured reserve list.
What do the Cowboys see in Peprah, who helps beef up an injury-depleted group of safeties?
“He’s a smart football player and a good athlete and has good awareness.” Garrett said. “He’s done a really nice job for Green Bay as a safety, coming in and really helping them absorb some injuries in the past and being a starter … But that knee thing has been a factor for him in the past. We worked him out a few weeks ago. He seems good. We got a pretty good clearance from our medical staff on him. So we’re excited to bring him in as well.”
