ESPN Dallas expects the Cowboys to re-sign exclusive rights free agent DT Brian Schaefering.

Schaefering played just 45 snaps after arriving in December, but has 40 games of NFL experience. He'd be cheap, experienced line depth for a team that's up against the salary cap.

Cowboys signed DT Brian Schaefering.

He'll take the roster spot of DT Josh Brent, who was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list Wednesday. A fourth-year pro, Schaefering appeared in all 16 games for the Browns last season, and is just two years removed from making nine starts. His snaps should be limited for Big D, however.

Browns DT Brian Schaefering is sitting out OTAs while recovering from offseason hernia surgery.

It doesn't seem like a big deal, but it is for Schaefering as he competes for a roster spot along a Cleveland line that made four big offseason additions while getting back Marcus Benard from injury. Schaefering is on the bubble.

Browns signed DE Brian Schaefering off their practice squad.

Schaefering, a former undrafted free agent out of Illinois, is Eric Mangini's old pal from the Jets. He won't make an impact in the last five games.

Browns signed DE Brian Schaefering, formerly of the Jets.

Cleveland coach Eric Mangini knows Schaefering from last year, but he's probably not going to last through the first round of cuts next Tuesday.

Jets waived DE Brian Schaefering.

Shaefering, a 2008 undrafted free agent out of Illinois, was being looked at as a defensive end in the Jets' hybrid 3-4 system. He lacks the explosiveness and size to be a serious contributor at this level, however.
