Colombo, who started 72 games for the Cowboys after a devastating knee injury nearly ended his career with the Bears, signed what amounted to a one-day contract with the team. Colombo played all last season with the Miami Dolphins after the Cowboys released him following the lockout to clear a space for first-round draft pick Tyron Smith.
The Cowboys made a no-risk investment in Colombo and in their strength program and with a little more time, he was back ready to play. Colombo excelled at right tackle and enjoyed a solid career while being a high character member of the locker room.
