The Cowboys have free-agent offensive lineman Byron Bell in for a visit to The Star. Bell missed last season with the Tennessee Titans due to a dislocated ankle. He has tackle and guard experience and could be viewed as a contender at right tackle for the Cowboys with the impending retirement of Doug Free. Bell met with the Green Bay Packers earlier in the week.

Former Michigan DE Taco Charlton said he believed he is a Top 15 guy. Has visits set up with Dallas, New Orleans, Tampa Bay and Miami. Met last night with Saints, Steelers, Ravens and Titans.

Backup quarterback Kellen Moore did not receive a signing bonus but he had $100,000 of his base salary guaranteed in his one-year deal with the Cowboys. Interestingly that is more guaranteed money than what Darren McFadden received ($80,000) in his one-year deal with the Cowboys.
