The Dallas Cowboys have made their first acquisition since NFL free agency opened a week ago.
Free-agent linebacker Joe Thomas has reached a two-year deal with the Cowboys Jahleel Addae Jersey , a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Wednesday night. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal hadn't been signed, and there was no announcement from the team.
Thomas started eight of his 42 games the past three seasons for the Green Bay Packers. He was also a contributor on special teams.
Undrafted out of South Carolina State, Thomas initially signed with the Packers in 2014 and spent part of that season on their practice squad. After being a preseason roster cut by Green Bay in 2015 Jason McCourty Jersey , he then was on the practice squad in Dallas before being signed to the Packers' active roster and making his NFL debut, playing 14 games that season.
The Cowboys lost linebackers Anthony Hitchens and Kyler Wilber in free agency. Hitchens signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, and Wilber signed with the Oakland Raiders.

Wide receiver Carlos Henderson did not report to Broncos training camp when it opened in July Blidi Wreh-Wilson Jersey , but he was at the team’s facility on Tuesday and reportedly wants to return.
Mike Klis of KUSA reports that Henderson told Broncos General Manager John Elway that he would like to rejoin the team. Henderson, who is on the did not report list, was away from the team for personal reasons that have yet to be disclosed.
Henderson was a third-round pick in 2017 Cortez Kennedy Jersey , but missed all of last season due to a thumb injury that required surgery. Klis reports that the team “will do their homework” on Henderson’s reasons for missing training most of their summer work before making a call about bringing him back.
If the Broncos do take him back, Henderson will have to serve a one-game suspension stemming from a marijuana possession arrest in June.
