Dallas Cowboys' Brian Waters to get significant playing time

Dallas Cowboys signed guard Brian Waters to shore up the interior of their offensive line. They signed him in the week before the season opener so he didn’t play against the New York Giants, but it looks like he might be ready to play his former team the Kansas City Chiefs according to Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones.

From the Dallas Morning News:

“He’s one of those guys that is timeless,” Jones told the Ben & Skin show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “He’s stepped right out there and done some amazing things already for a guy who wasn’t on the field last year. And obviously he didn’t have an offseason or a training camp.

“It’s pretty amazing that he’s going to be able to step in and, I think, really contribute in this game. I don’t know if he’ll play the whole game, but I think he’s going to start getting a lot of snaps in this game.”

The Cowboys could use Waters Sunday. The offensive line didn’t perform incredibly poorly but there is always room for the line to improve. Waters is also an incredibly strong guard, who showed off his weight lifting abilities, and can help drive the defensive line off the line of scrimmage.
