Cowboys claim ex-OU LB Mike Balogun

The Cowboys claimed linebacker Mike Balogun off waivers Monday three days after the Oklahoma product was waived by the Buffalo Bills.

Balogun saw action in two games last year for the Bills, who signed him off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad Nov. 10.

Balogun played for the Sooners in 2008 but was ruled ineligible for 2009 by the NCAA because of his previous participation in a semi-pro football league.

He also spent time on the Washington Redskins' practice squad.
