Restricted free-agent WR Austin among three Cowboys to re-sign

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys have signed their final three free agents -- wide receiver Miles Austin, running back Alonzo Coleman and tight end Rodney Hannah.

Terms of the deals weren't disclosed.

Austin, a restricted free agent, will return to Dallas after being courted by the New York Jets. The Jetsnever made Austin an offer.

Austin signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2006 and had a 93-yard kickoff return for a touchdown as a rookie. He was expected to play a bigger role as a wide receiver last season, but injuries limited him to 13 catches for 278 yards and three touchdowns.

Coleman and Hannah have spent the majority of the past two seasons on the Cowboys' practice squad after signing as undrafted rookie free agents.
