IRVING, Texas (AP) _ Cornerback Tyrone Williams and tight end Mikhael Ricks, were signed by the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday to replace Pete Hunter and Dan Campbell, two starters lost to season-ending injuries.
Williams was with the Green Bay Packers from 1996-2002, then spent last season with Atlanta. He was not re-signed by the Falcons.
Rookie Jacques Reeves, a seventh-round draft choice, is expected to start opposite Terrence Newman when Dallas plays next, a week from Sunday against the New York Giants. Williams would be a backup.
Ricks, released by the New York Jets last month, is more a receiver than blocker. Campbell was primarily the blocking tight end for Dallas. He has played for San Diego, Kansas City and Detroit.
Not a fan of williams, looks like they brought him in for depth. Pick up hilliard in week 5
