Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Daniel Ross will be employed by the organization a little while longer, as the team has announced they’ve extended his contract.
The #Cowboys have signed DT Daniel Ross to a 1-year deal, source said. Solid depth piece in Dallas.

CBS Sports is reporting that the Cowboys just recently re-signed Ross, along with other players like Allen Hurns, Joe Looney and linebacker Joe Thomas — one day after re-signing Justin March-Lillard — keeping all five in tow for 2019
Ross re-signing will keep him on with the team for one more year.
The first two seasons with the Cowboys for Ross have been a bit of a hit-or-miss: he has just 19 combined tackles in 16 games, but five have been for a loss, and he has nine hits on the opposing quarterback with two sacks.
With this contract extension, however, it looks like he’ll get a chance to make it right come next year.
Though he started his professional career in Canada — with the Edmonton Eskimos and the Saskatchewan Roughriders — he first started playing ball in America in Texas, playing for the Houston Texans. However, he was eventually waived and released without ever taking the field.
The only time Ross first started playing was when he got signed to the Cowboys, which is where he was brought on to fill the roster spot created by Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension. The addition of Ross and the promotion of Lewis Neal from the team’s practice squad helped to improve the depth at the defensive line with both Brian Price and Stephen Paea being placed on the injured reserve list.
