Cowboys claim running back Rod Smith from Seahawks

Rod Smith, Marcus Cooper


At this point, it’s safe to assume that if the Seahawks ever cut Marshawn Lynch, the Cowboys will sign him.

The Cowboys continued to pick up Seattle’s recycling, claiming running back Rod Smith off waivers.

They had previously traded for Christine Michael, in their quest to keep a backfield stocked with options.

They worked out some backs today, including LaMike James, but opted for the big back from Ohio State.

Smith had been on Seattle’s practice squad, but was promoted last week to the active roster when they ran short in the backfield themselves, and released yesterday when they tried to cover other spots with Lynch getting healthy.
