Brandon Moore, Dallas Cowboys agree on contract

The Dallas Cowboys made a big move in their search for guard help Tuesday, agreeing to a one-year contract with former New York Jet Brandon Moore, a source told NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Playing at close to a Pro Bowl level for the past half-decade, Moore was one of the few remaining free agents at any position capable of stepping in as an immediate upgrade. He drew interest from the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins early in free agency, but his reported $3 million to $4 million asking price apparently scared away those teams.

The 10-year veteran had made it clear he had no intention of retiring at age 33, and it's understandable that he'd only come back and risk a serious injury if a team made it worth his while. Evidently, the Cowboys did.

With veteran guards Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau on the shelf with injuries, Dallas is the ideal fit for Moore.
