Cowboys signed RBs Michael Hill and Ben Malena.
Hill has been tried out by or practiced with seemingly countless NFL teams since going undrafted out of Missouri State in 2013. Malena stands 5-foot-8 and 194 pounds. Including Lache Seastrunk, the Cowboys seemingly are making it a point to sign running backs who have no realistic chance at threatening for in-season carries. It's an outward show of faith in Joseph Randle, and to a lesser extent, even, injured Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar. Aug 15 - 5:54 PM
