Roundup: Darren McFadden re-signs with Cowboys

Darren McFadden will return as running back depth for Ezekiel Elliott in Dallas.

McFadden signed a one-year deal to return to the Cowboys, the team announced Thursday. McFadden had one of his best years as a pro when he became the Cowboys starting running back midway through the 2015 season, notching 1,089 yards on 239 carries to the tune of 4.6 yards per carry.

Elbow surgery in June derailed McFadden last season but he still appeared in four games for the Cowboys. The running back is entering his age-30 season.
