IRVING, Texas (AP) The Dallas Cowboys have signed free agent linebacker Matt Stewart to a one-year contract.

Stewart, who signed Tuesday, was out of football in 2008 after getting released by Arizona in the final roster cuts before the season started.

The 29-year-old Stewart was a fourth-round pick by Atlanta in 2001 and played four seasons with the Falcons. He spent the next three seasons with Cleveland.

In 93 career games, Stewart has 357 tackles, eight sacks and an interception.
