The Cowboys signed one of the offensive tackles they worked out this week.
J.B. Shugarts, a former top recruit from Klein who spent last year with the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills, joined the Cowboys, along with long snapper Jackson Anderson, an undrafted rookie who spent five years at Duke.
To make room, the Cowboys released long snapper Charley Hughlett and receiver Carlton Mitchell.
Shugarts signed with the Browns after the draft last year, was cut and signed to the practice squad in September, released a week later, then joined the Bills practice squad in December and was released three weeks later.
With Shugarts’ signing, the Cowboys have six tackles on the roster, including Doug Free, Tyron Smith, Jermey Parnell, Darrion Weems and Edawn Coughman.
The team also worked out tackle Dann O'Neill.
