'Boys Pick Up Free Agent Linebacker

The Cowboys have added another young free agent to the fold, 24-year-old linebacker Brashton Satele.

A University of Hawaii product, he went undrafted in 2010, attending training camp with the New York Jets, spending the entire year on their practice squad.

He was re-signed by the Jets as a futures player last winter, and remained with the team all offseason, but was waived at the end of the preseason.

The 6-0, 248-pounder is the son of former San Diego Chargers linebacker Alvis Satele and the cousin of current Raiders center Samson Satele.

The Cowboys have already reserved the rights of a number of futures players, including five from their own practice squad, cornerbacks C.J. Wilson and Mario Butler, wide receiver Teddy Williams, linebacker Orie Lemon and defensive tackler Robert Calloway. Earlier this week they added linebacker Baraka Atkins, safety Justin Taplin-Ross.
