The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed RB Darren McFadden to a one-year deal, according to his agent.

Reports had said that the Cowboys wanted to bring McFadden back as their backup running back, so this doesn’t come as a big a surprise.
It’s worth monitoring the status of Alfred Morris moving forward, as there has been some talk he could either be available for trade or a possible release candidate.
McFadden, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Raiders back in 2018. He spent seven years in Oakland before signing a two-year, $3 million contract that included a $200,000 signing bonus with the Cowboys.
McFadden was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the second time in his career.
In 2016, McFadden was limited to appearing in three games and rushing for 87 yards on 24 carries (3.6 YPC) to go along with three receptions for 17 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
