The Cowboys announced the signing of their sixth-round pick, linebacker DeVonte Holloman.
It continues a trend of the Cowboys getting signings made earlier than they normally have, which owner Jerry Jones credited to the latest collective bargaining agreement, which leaves less flexibility in pay range for draft picks.
“The new system is doing a good thing for the teams and the fans, and that is getting these guys signed, getting them in, and you’ve got them participating earlier,” Jones said. “I think that’ll be the result. I think the new system is helping that.”
The team also announced the signing of 15 undrafted rookies: kicker Spencer Benton, cornerback Xavier Brewer, tight end Paul Freedman, safety Jakar Hamilton, cornerback Dustin Harris, safety Jeff Heath, receiver Greg Herd, linebacker Deon Lacey, linebacker Cameron Lawrence, running back Kendial Lawrence, linebacker Brandon Magee, linebacker Taylor Reed, receiver Eric Rogers, cornerback Devin Smith and quarterback Dalton Williams.
Quarterback Aaron Corp, signed and released in a span of two days this week, cleared waivers and worked in the second practice Friday.
