Tyvis Powell's NFL journey added another twist on Monday as the former Buckeye defensive back signed with the Dallas Cowboys.

Powell signed with Houston on July 27, but was cut less than a week later. Just two days after that, Powell is a Cowboy.

Dallas is Powell's seventh NFL team since he left Ohio State. Powell has appeared in 18 games throughout his professional career – eight with the Seattle Seahawks and 10 with the 49ers – and started one game in San Francisco last season.

With the addition of Powell, the Cowboys' roster now includes five former Buckeyes – tied with the Saints for the most in the NFL – as Powell joins Ezekiel Elliott, Mike Weber, Devin Smith and Noah Brown.
