Veteran guard Derrick Dockery has signed a one-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, according to a league source.
Dockery, entering his ninth season, had a streak of 111 straight starts end last season in his second stint with the Washington Redskins. He played in only five games last season, with two starts, because of a knee injury.
The Cowboys were able to sign Dockery by releasing veteran guard Montrae Holland. But Holland arrived at camp out of shape and ultimately lost his starting spot to rookie Bill Nagy.
Signing with the Cowboys is a homecoming of sorts for Dockery, who was born in Dallas. The Cowboys have overhauled their offensive line since last season, parting ways with veterans G Leonard Davis, OT Marc Colombo, C Andre Gurode and Holland.
