Watkins is a former fourth round pick from Clemson back in 2017, and spent the early part of his career with the Houston Texans. Watkins has totaled 69 tackles and four sacks since entering the league, and started 11 games with Houston in 2020.
Cowboys agreed to terms with ex-Texans DL Carlos Watkins, they announced. He'll join the defensive tackle rotation in Dallas. Watkins made 11 starts last year, totaling 27 tackles and two sacks.

Signing Carlos Watkins gives the Cowboys another piece of roster depth on the interior. Currently, their defensive tackle room only includes Watkins, Neville Gallimore, and Trysten Hill, with Antwuan Woods' future up in the air.
