The Dallas Cowboys may not have Brian Waters on the field for the rest of this season but that would not prevent the team from bringing back the 36-year-old offensive lineman for 2014.
Waters appeared in seven games for the Cowboys before suffering a season ending torn biceps.
“He is a heck of a guy to have on your football team,” head coach Jason Garrett said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He’s a warrior. He demonstrated that throughout his career in the short period of time he was with us. He had a real positive impact and his demeanor and his temperament was contagious particularly for that offensive line group.”
Waters signed a one-year deal worth $1.5 million in early September to join a young and inexperienced Cowboys offensive line.
“We have so many young guys,” Garrett said. “Tyron Smith is young. Ron Leary is young. Travis Frederick is young. All these guys are young football players and to have a veteran guy like that to kind of show them how to do it, it was really good.
