Cowboys LE George Selvie (shoulder surgery) remains on track for training camp.

Coach Jason Garrett expects Selvie to be a "full participant" when the team reports on July 24. Selvie, 27, is heading into the final year of his contract after breaking out for seven sacks last season. He's not a star, but the Cowboys desperately need him at full health with their defensive line being the thinnest in the league.

He's expected to be ready for training camp. Selvie emerged as a key rotational end for the Cowboys' battered defensive line last season, racking up 39 tackles and seven sacks while appearing in all 16 games. He'll serve in a similar capacity in 2014.

Cowboys signed DE George Selvie, formerly of the Jaguars.

Jason Pierre-Paul's teammate at South Florida, Selvie is on his fourth NFL team since being drafted in 2010. He'll give Dallas a little depth after they lost Anthony Spencer (knee) for up to a month and Tyrone Crawford (Achilles) for the year. Selvie had just one sack across 238 snaps for the Jags last year.

Bucs signed DE George Selvie, formerly of the Jaguars.

Most recently of the Jaguars, 26-year-old Selvie has bounced around the league and amassed three career sacks across 36 games. The Bucs need pass-rush help at defensive end, but there's little reason to believe Selvie provides it.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the Bucs are expected to sign free agent DE George Selvie on Tuesday.

Selvie, a 26-year-old former seventh-round pick out of South Florida, has three career sacks across three seasons. He'd compete for a roster spot in Tampa.

Jaguars DE George Selvie will be sidelined 2-3 weeks with a sprained knee.

A reserve who appeared in 11 games between the Jags and Panthers last season, Selvie could be a candidate for injured reserve despite the favorable timeline. He had two tackles in the Jaguars' first two preseason games.

Jaguars signed DE George Selvie.

The Jags lost three players to injured reserve Monday, opening up some roster spots. Selvie is a 2010 seventh-rounder that played with Jason Pierre-Paul at South Florida. He's been out of the league since the Panthers gave up on him in early October.

Panthers claimed DE George Selvie off waivers from the Rams.

GM Marty Hurney has been a busy man, already claiming three players off waivers. A 2010 seventh-rounder out of South Florida, Selvie played all 16 games last year with 21 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Carolina will try to develop him as a situational pass rusher.

Rams waived DE George Selvie.

Selvie was considered a potential first-round pick early in his South Florida career, only to get lost behind Jason Pierre-Paul by his senior season. He could still develop into a situational pass rusher, but is out of practice squad options after appearing in 16 games during his rookie year.

Rams DE George Selvie's pass-rush skills have reportedly been impressive during camp.

The rookie was credited with two sacks in Saturday's scrimmage. A seventh-round pick, Selvie was considered first-round material after a big 2007 season at South Florida, but his stock plummeted after back-to-back disappointing years. He's an interesting guy to watch as a potential situational rusher.

Rams signed seventh-round DE George Selvie to a four-year contract.

Considered a first-round pick after a huge 2007 season, Selvie's production dropped off precipitously the past two years due to leg injuries and double teams. If he makes the team, Selvie will likely play in a situational pass rushing role.
