The Dallas Cowboys will have visits from defensive tackle Henry Melton and quarterback Brandon Weeden on Monday reports ESPN Dallas.

If the Cowboys were to land the 27-year-old Melton, he would be reunited with Rod Marinelli who turned him into a Pro Bowl player during their time together with the Chicago Bears.

The Cowboys are desperate for a presence in the middle of their defense. Melton only played in three games for the Bears last season after suffering a torn ACL but is expected to be ready to go for the 2014 season.

Weeden, 30, spent the last two seasons with the Cleveland Browns after being a first round pick in 2012. He was recently let go by the team as they transition to yet another head coach. Weeden has 23 career touchdowns to go with 29 interceptions. He could be a replacement for Kyle Orton who could be headed towards retirement.

Orton is owed $3.25 million next season so it is hard to imagine him walking away. Still Weeden could also be kept around as a third quarterback, something the Cowboys have not done since 2011.
