Cowboys Expected To Add Three Players; One Spot Still Open


IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys' current roster will likely expand by three shortly after landing in Oxnard, Calif.

The team is expected to sign quarterback Alex Tanney, wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei and offensive tackle Demetress Bell, pending physicals in Oxnard. That would leave one more open spot on the 90-man roster, which will be filled at a later date after the team gathers.

Bell is the player among that group with the most NFL experience, having started five games last year for the Eagles. He's played in 40 games during his career, including 35 starts, spending four years in Buffalo before joining Philadelphia.

The tackle was released by the Eagles shortly after the season in February and will quickly provide depth for the Cowboys, who still have a right tackle spot up for grabs.

Tanney and Tuinei both worked out for the Cowboys earlier this week, along with six other players. Tanney signed with the Chiefs after going undrafted last year but spent the year on injured reserve before being released. The former Division-III quarterback set the NCAA record for all-time career touchdown passes at Monmouth, finishing with 157.

Tuinei played three seasons at Oregon, scoring 10 touchdowns on 48 catches his final season in 2011. He's spent time with the Bengals and Seahawks since then and demonstrated enough during his workout this week for the Cowboys to give him a look at camp.
