The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with free-agent defensive tackle Amobi Okoye, his agents confirmed to ESPN.
Okoye, who was out of football last season due to an undisclosed medical issue, is reunited with Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli, who coached Okoye with the Chicago Bears (2011-2012).
He turns 27 on June 10. Okoye was 19 when the Houston Texans selected him 10th overall in the 2007 draft.
Okoye, who was born in Anambra, Nigeria, played in his first game for Louisville in 2003 at the age of 16.
