The Cowboys added another defensive end, Adewale Ojomo, on Friday after earlier signing Kenneth Boatright.
Neither move will become official until Saturday when the Cowboys are expected to release rookie receiver La’Damian Washington. They will have to make another move, and it could be the release of rookie offensive lineman Darius Morris, but a source said that decision hasn’t been finalized yet.
Ojomo has spent time with the Giants, the Seahawks, the Bills and the Titans since entering the league as an undrafted free agent out of Miami in 2012. He has played one game in his career. The Titans released him in April after his arrest for soliciting a prostitute in Miami.
The Cowboys also worked out Cory Henry on Friday.
Defensive end DeMarcus Lawence is out 8-12 weeks with a fractured foot that required surgery Thursday. Ben Bass (hamstring) left practice early Thursday, and Terrell McClain (ankle), Anthony Spencer (knee) and Amobi Okoye still are sidelined.
