COWBOYS GET MUCH NEEDED HELP BY SIGNING OG BRANDON MOORE - The Dallas Cowboys have signed former New York Jets offensive guard Brandon Moore to a one-year deal, according to NFL Networks Ian Rapoport. Financial terms of the deal are not known at this time.

Moore, who was on the “back-end” of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez’s infamous butt fumble, was reportedly ready to hang up his cleats after 10 years in the league. But his agent, Deryk Gilmore, let it be known through the league that his client was indeed wanting to go at least one more year.

Moore started 142 games over his 10-year career (including 137 straight games) and also made the Pro Bowl in 2011. Despite being a solid lineman for the Jets, it became increasingly clear that he would not be return for the 2013 season.

Moore fills a need at a position that the Cowboys have suffered injuries. Head coach Jason Garrett is looking to establish the run this season and Moore should be able to help in that regard. (Photo: USA Today Sports)
