Cowboys Add Depth At LB With Recent Signing

The Dallas Cowboys depth at linebacker has been tested over the last couple weeks.


With Sean Lee out and Anthony Hitchens returning from injury, the Cowboys could have used some help at the linebacker position.  That is exactly what happened on Wednesday afternoon.

The Cowboys sign depth at linebacker!

The Cowboys signed Justin March-Lillard to the team in hopes that he can help with giving the team depth at a crucial position (via Star-Telegram).

March-Lillard was an undrafted free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2015-16.  He has been a player on the move over the last month.  He spent time with Miami and Seattle after the Chiefs released him on September 2, thus proving he is well traveled.

To say that it’s been a crazy last month, would be an understatement.  The young LB has now been on four separate teams since the first of September.

“It’s been a crazy, crazy month,” March-Lillard said. “I’m real excited to be here.

“It’s part of the business. … To still be employed and still play the game I love is huge. It’s been a unique situation I’d say. My home is in my suitcase now.”

The Cowboys made three much different moves on Wednesday, which makes for a busy day.  They released Nolan Carroll, signed March-Lillard, and saw Stephen Paea retire all in the same day.

Don’t expect this newest Cowboy to have much of an impact on defense.  It will be on the special teams that March-Lillard sees the most work.  That is where you see a lot of depth get used for most teams.  If you are not a starter on the team, you better be able to contribute to special teams.

Welcome to the Cowboys!
