Cowboys hosting pair of veteran free agents
MAR 24, 2013 2:32p ET
Allen, 30, was a part-time starter in Pittsburgh last year. He previously played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he played safety in the same Tampa-2 defense being installed in Dallas. Allen has played in 130 NFL games, with 33 starts.
Durant, 27, has been a full-time starter with the Lions and last year totaled 103 tackles. He played strong-side linebacker, a possible position of need for the Cowboys.
The Cowboys have virtually no cap room, but that can change quickly. The team is working toward creating space via new deals for quarterback Tony Romo and linebacker Anthony Spencer.
