Cowboys sign RB Royce Freeman

The Dallas Cowboys added depth to their backfield by signing running back Royce Freeman to a contract on Wednesday.

Terms were not disclosed but multiple media outlets reported it was a one-year contract for Freeman, 28.

Dallas needed help at the position after seeing last season’s leading rusher Tony Pollard depart in free agency.

Freeman, a six-year veteran, becomes the most experienced running back on the roster for the Cowboys, who also have Rico Dowdle, Deuce Vaughn, Malik Davis, Snoop Conner and Hunter Luepke.

Freeman ran for 319 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games off the bench last season with the Los Angeles Rams. The 2018 third-round pick has rushed for 1,792 yards with 10 TDs in 79 career games (nine starts) with the Denver Broncos (2018-20), Carolina Panthers (2021), Houston Texans (2021-22) and Rams (2023).
