Texas' Whaley, A&M's Malena sign with Cowboys

Former Texas defensive tackle Chris Whaley and running back Ben Malena of Texas A&M are among 24 undrafted free agents signed by the Dallas Cowboys.

Whaley followed the same path to the NFL as new teammate Henry Melton. Both were recruited to Texas as running backs and became defensive linemen. Melton signed with the Cowboys as a free agent after starting for Chicago.

Malena was one of the running backs behind quarterback Johnny Manziel with the Aggies.

The Cowboys signed five offensive linemen, four defensive backs and three linebackers. They added a fourth quarterback in West Texas A&M's Dustin Vaughan.

With nine draft picks, Dallas is adding 33 rookies to the roster. The Cowboys released six veterans to make room for them.
