The Dallas Cowboys have signed defensive end Anthony Hargrove, who sat out the 2012 season after he was suspended as part of the New Orleans Saints' bounty scandal.

Hargrove, who signed a one-year deal Thursday, got an eight-game ban from Commissioner Roger Goodell after the NFL said the Saints ran a program that paid defensive players improper cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents from 2009 through 2011.

Hargrove's suspension was eventually reduced to two games, but he never signed with another team after Green Bay released him during the preseason last year.

The nine-year veteran was with Seattle the season before the bounty scandal broke. He played for the Saints in 2009 and 2010.

Hargrove was suspended the entire 2008 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
