The Cowboys have agreed to terms with offensive tackle Cameron Bradfield, according to Bradfield’s agent Andy Simms (Twitter link). Contract specifics haven’t yet been released, but it’s likely a one-year, minimum salary benefit deal.
Bradfield, who will turn 29 in September, was part of a contingent that auditioned for Dallas at the beginning of June. It’s entirely possible that the Cowboys are simply adding Bradfield as a camp body, as the club famously has one of the best offensive lines in the league. Three members of the club’s front five — left tackle Tyron Smith, center Travis Frederick, and right guard Zack Martin — earned second-team All Pro honors last season. Right tackle Doug Free, meanwhile, is no slouch, and left guard La’el Collins was considered a first-round prospect before unfounded legal issues caused him to go undrafted in 2015.
The Cowboys also have enviable depth up front, as the club boasts veterans Ronald Leary (who could be traded) and Joe Looney on the interior, and former third-round pick Chaz Green at tackle. Bradfield, though, has his own merits, though he didn’t appear in the NFL last year. Bradfield has played in 41 games (27 starts) during his career, and was a starter for the Jaguars from 2013-14. He’s bounced around the past few seasons, and most recently inked a futures deal with the Cardinals before being waived at final cutdowns last year.
