Former Mavericks DT signed by Cowboys

Former Minnesota State defensive tackle Junior Aumavae has signed a free-agent deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
Watching the NFL Draft with his family at their Alaska home, Aumavae said he took a call from Cowboys, who were considering using their seventh-round draft choice on him, but they took another defensive tackle, which discouraged the former Mavericks player.
Aumavae played in 11 games last season and started nine, making 11 tackles with 14 assists with a half-sack and forced fumble.
Former Minnesota State cornerback Kelvin Rodgers and defensive end Randy Earl had also been told they might be drafted but weren't. Both could sign free-agent deals this week.
