Cowboys Add DBs to Roster; More Rookies Out

As reported at DallasCowboys.com the Cowboys added two defensive backs today. DeAngelo Willingham was claimed off waivers from the Tampa Bay Bucs and Jeremy Haynes was also picked up.

Willingham was cut by Tampa Bay following its last preseason game. He played cornerback and safety in college at Tennessee.

Haynes played at wide receiver his first two years at McNeese State before moving to cornerback. He was cut by the Titans during training camp.

It’s clear both positions were in need of depth.

    i liked deangello willingham coming out of tennesee. had him ranked around the bottom of the fourth round after a strong combine. he really stunk it up though in tampa. i hope this fresh start will get him going back the other way. possibly a safety at the nfl level. we’ll see. as for haynes…look for him to play in the preseason finale and get cut the following day…hes just a body…
