The Dallas Cowboys have been looking for ways to make sure that $100 million quarterback Tony Romo spends the season upright and they are going about it by adding a former Pro Bowl guard to the roster. According to Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.com, the Cowboys have signed former New York Jets guard Brandon Moore.
And now it’s agreed to: OG Brandon Moore to sign with the Cowboys. One-year deal. And it’s for more than the vet minimum, btw.

With the team’s current starters — Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau — dealing with or returning from injury, the team needed to add some depth along the line.
Moore gives them valuable experience and leadership at the position as they bolster their front line for 2013. He has started every game for the Jets over the past eight seasons, so there is reason to believe that he will be lining up as a starter when the season kicks off.
If he does, then Tony Romo will be on his back a lot less than he has in the past.
