Cowboys Sign Receiver Cleveland; Colombo To Dolphins

With the Cowboys down two bodies at the receiver position, Teddy Williams (hamstring) and Jesse Holley (signed free agent) the Cowboys have made a couple of moves this weekend to bolster the position as they move through training camp. While the Cowboys signed Tysson Poots on Sunday, they felt they needed another receiver in camp. Today they announced the signing of former University of Houston standout James Cleveland. Cleveland had 158 catches in his two seasons with the Cougars, despite being limited in 2010 by a quarterback rotation and a suspension for breaking team rules. He started his college career in Iowa but moved to the Cougars in 2009.

Cleveland has decent speed and at 6’2, 205 lbs. would make a good slot receiver. He has really good hands and is considered a good route runner. He comes to the team with the label of being a “product of the system” in Houston, but will have a chance to compete with the Cowboys.

Colombo Moving To Miami

It seems all former Cowboys either go to Miami or Chicago. It looks like the beach is the next location for Marc Colombo. Colombo was a salary cap casualty for the Cowboys and was made dispensable when they drafted first round pick Tyron Smith. He signed with the Dolphins on Monday.

In Miami, Colombo will reunite with former o-line coach Tony Sparano who left to be the head coach of Miami when Bill Parcells took over as VP of Operations.
