Cowboys add OT Colombo to roster

IRVING, Texas (Nov. 2, 2004) -- The Dallas Cowboys tried bulking up their protection for quarterback Drew Bledsoe by signing tackle Marc Colombo, who had started seven games for the Chicago Bears after being a first-round pick in 2002.

Colombo, plagued throughout his career by knee injuries, played 18 games over the 2002-04 seasons for Chicago. He went to training camp with the Bears, then was cut Sept. 13.

The Cowboys, who had a vacant roster spot, have lacked depth at tackle all season, especially since left-side starter Flozell Adams was lost for the season to a knee injury. Sixth-round pick Rob Petitti starts on the right side.

Dallas also signed defensive end Vontrell Jamison to the practice squad. Guard Shannon Snell was released to clear a spot.
