IRVING, Texas (AP) -Suspended defensive tackle Tank Johnson has signed a two-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys.
Johnson, who played the last three seasons for the Chicago Bears, can't play for the Cowboys until he completes his eight-game NFL suspension for violating probation on a gun charge. He has served the first two games of that suspension.
Johnson signed Tuesday after visiting with the Cowboys and taking a physical.
``For a lot of reasons, he really just felt the Cowboys were the right fit,'' said Johnson's agent, Jerrold Colton. ``He's so thankful to them for giving him this opportunity. He is very determined to prove they made a wise decision in believing in him.''
