The Dallas Cowboys signed defensive lineman Igor Olshansky to a four-year contract, the team announced Friday.
NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports that Olshansky received a four-year, $18 million contract, with $8 million guaranteed.
With Chris Canty bolting for the New York Giants, Olshansky could fill the void on the defensive line.
Olshansky entered the NFL as a second-round draft pick by San Diego in 2004 and spent his first five seasons in the league with the Chargers. He has started 70 of 75 career regular-season games with 179 tackles, 11 sacks, one interception and six passes defensed.
Olshansky was born in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, and is the first player from the former Soviet Union to play in the NFL.
