Reports from last night mentioned that Spillman was expected to be added to the Cowboys roster sometime today, so this is really more of a confirmation.
Spillman, 28, signed with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall back in 2009. He later caught on with the 49ers where he spent the past five years. Last season, Spillman recorded 25 tackles over the course of 16 games.
Whitlock, 23, signed with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Wake Forest back in May. The Cowboys practice squad now consists of:
- WR Tim Benford
- DE Kenneth Boatright
- C Ronald Patrick
- S Micah Pellerin
- LB Keith Smith
- LB Will Smith
- RB Ryan Williams
- FB Nikita Whitlock
