According to multiple league sources, the Dallas Cowboys will sign former Patriots offensive tackle Cameron Fleming this weekend.

Fleming was among the first free agents that Dallas brought in for a visit early last week. He was a fourth-round pick of the Patriots in the 2014 draft. Before that he played his college ball at Stanford where he earned All-Pac 12 second team honors. Once with the Patriots, Fleming became a two time Super Bowl champion, seeing time as a starter, swing tackle and extra blocker in heavy formations. Last season Fleming found himself starting key games for the Patriots at right tackle including the AFC championship and Super Bowl.

A native of Fort Hood, Texas, Fleming will be experiencing a homecoming of sorts when he officially signs with Dallas. Details of the contract should give a good idea on whether Fleming is being brought in as a swing tackle or starting right tackle. If the front office does intend to have Fleming take over the right tackle spot, the logical assumption would be to move La’El Collins back to left guard. However, that doesn’t seem to be the plan at this time.

At the very least, the signing provides Dallas with more options along the offensive line. Couple the addition of Flemming with the signing of Allen Hurns and the Cowboys are filling their holes well enough to be able to select the best player available in next month’s draft.

In order to create additional cap room, Dallas restructured the contract of tight end Jason Witten, freeing up roughly $3.5 million in space.
