The Dallas Cowboys signed offensive tackle J.B. Shugarts and long snapper Jackson Anderson on Wednesday.

Shugarts, a former top recruit at Klein High School who worked out with the Cowboys on Tuesday, started three years at Ohio State. He spent last season on the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad.

He signed with the Cleveland Browns following the 2012 NFL Draft and was signed to their practice squad on Sept. 1, 2012, before being released on Sept. 11. He was signed to the Bills’ practice squad on Dec. 5 and released on Dec. 26.

Anderson, an undrafted rookie free agent, finished his five-year career at Duke in 2012.

Also on Wednesday, the club released long snapper Charley Hughlett and wide receiver Carlton Mitchell.

With Shugarts’ signing, the Cowboys have six tackles on the roster, including Doug Free, Tyron Smith, Jermey Parnell, Darrion Weems and Edawn Coughman.
