IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys signed defensive lineman Jerome Long to take the roster spot of Anthony Hargrove, who was cut last week.
Long took part in the Cowboys’ rookie minicamp on a tryout basis but was not signed. He was a seventh-round pick by Kansas City in 2012 and was signed off the Chiefs’ practice squad late last season by Jacksonville. The Jaguars cut Long in April.
Long, 6-4, 285 pounds, had 69 tackles and five sacks as a senior at San Diego State.
The Cowboys have 13 defensive linemen on the 90-man roster.
