IRVING, Texas– The Cowboys continued to tweak their offensive tackle depth Tuesday, waiving Darrion Weems and officially signing Charles Brown.
Jordan Mills was also waived Monday after a week on the 53-man roster, which means Brown – a five-year veteran with 22 starts in 39 career games – is now the only backup tackle behind starters Tyron Smith and Doug Free.
Brown is a former second-round pick (2010) and college teammate of Smith's at USC. He played three seasons with the Saints and Giants and signed with the Jets this past summer. New York released him on Sept. 5.
Weems was an inactive reserve for the entire 2012 and 2013 seasons and spent last year on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. This year he worked as the primary swing tackle in training camp, replacing the departed Jermey Parnell.
The Cowboys on Tuesday also released safety Tim Scott from the 10-man practice squad, which creates an open spot.
