PRO: In looking to again revamp the club’s offensive line, the Dallas Cowboys went after Nate Livings in free agency. In Livings, the club lands a young but experienced guard that has started all 32 games through the previous two seasons while with the Cincinnati Bengals. Livings looks to step in and win a starting spot on a line in which both guard spots are open for competition. He originally came into the league as a collegiate free agent with Cincinnati in 2006 and earned his stripes, spending two-plus seasons on the Bengals practice squad before earning his shot as a starting lineman.
