IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) — The Dallas Cowboys added depth at the running back position on Monday, officially signing former Cardinals running back Ryan Williams.

Williams worked out for the team on Saturday, had a one-on-one meeting with owner Jerry Jones, and ended the day by tweeting “I’m a Cowboy”.

The team announced the signing on Monday.

Williams, a free agent who played just five games in three seasons for Arizona, was a second-round pick of the Cardinals in 2011. He tore his patella tendon in the preseason and missed his entire rookie season.

In 2012, the former Virginia Tech back carried the ball 58 times for 164 yards, averaging just 2.8 yards per carry. He did not appear in a game in 2013.

“We just think he’s a good football player. He was a guy we regarded very highly coming out in the draft,” coach Jason Garrett said at a charity event Sunday evening in Grapevine. “He’s someone that we watched him on tape. He played mostly in 2012 before he hurt his shoulder. He looks like the back that we saw coming out of school. We did our due diligence on him as a guy and we feel like you bring a guy like that in to compete at the running back spot, it’s good for our team.”

The Cowboys waived undrafted rookie Glasco Martin from Baylor to make room for Williams.
