The Cowboys lured Mayowa away from the Raiders earlier this offseason, but he needed arthroscopic knee surgery in June and landed on the team's PUP list to begin training camp. Now nearing full strength, Mayowa will provide depth along Dallas' defensive line.
Mayowa underwent a knee scope in June with an original timetable for his recovery of six weeks, but he appears to be a bit behind that schedule now.

Mayowa only has two career sacks to his name, but the Cowboys liked what they saw from him last season in a limited role with the Raiders, and he'll join a defensive end rotation that is very unsettled beyond DeMarcus Lawrence. With Randy Gregory suspended for the first four games of 2016, Mayowa could take on a larger role than expected.
