Dallas Cowboys Sign Former Clemson Defensive Lineman

The Dallas Cowboys have been looking to add depth along their defensive front.

The announcement of the organization agreeing to terms with former Clemson DT Carlos Watkins gives the Cowboys just that.

Watkins, who was originally selected in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Texans, signed a one-year deal with Dallas.

Over his four year career Watkins has appeared in 42 games, posting 69 tackles and 4 sacks. Last season he started a career-high 11 games, playing just under half of the teams defensive snaps, and posted a career-high 2 sacks.

After playing in a 3-4 scheme and lining up inside and outside during his time as a Texan, Watkins will now likely go back to playing strictly inside in the Cowboys more traditional 4-3 defense.
