Cowboys bring back tight end McGee

IRVING, Texas -- Tight end Tony McGee has returned to the Dallas Cowboys, who had released him during the final round of cuts before the season.

McGee, who played 10 seasons in Cincinnati before joining the Cowboys last season, was signed Tuesday. To make room on the roster, the team cut defensive tackle Michael Myers, a 1998 fourth-round pick who started 25 games.

The Cowboys need help at tight end after rookie Jason Witten broke his jaw in Sunday's 24-7 victory over Arizona.
