OXNARD, Calif. – The Cowboys have signed two of the three defensive ends they worked out Friday morning – Adewale Ojomo and Kenneth Boatwright.

Ojomo is the more veteran of the two, as he signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Miami in 2012. He spent time on the practice squad in Seattle, Buffalo and Tennessee in 2013. The Titans released him this past April after he was arrested for soliciting a prostitute in Miami.

Boatwright played his college ball at Southern Illinois and signed undrafted with Seattle in 2013. The Seahawks released him during their June minicamp this summer.

The Cowboys are expected to release rookie offensive lineman Darius Morris and rookie receiver L'Damian Washington to make room for the new additions.

Injuries all along the defensive front have created a need for extra bodies at the position. DeMarcus Lawrence was lost for eight to 12 weeks with a broken foot on Tuesday, while other defensive linemen like Terrell McClain and Ben Bass have suffered lesser injuries.

The Cowboys also worked out former Florida Atlantic defensive end Cory Henry on Friday, but they did not sign him.
