The Dallas Cowboys added to their wide receiver depth Thursday by signing LaRon Byrd one week before the NFL draft.

Byrd (6-4, 220) played college football at Miami and was originally signed by the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2012. In four games with Arizona in 2012, Byrd had one catch for eight yards. He also made two special teams tackles with Arizona during his two seasons.

Byrd, 24, missed all of last season after suffering a concussion during the preseason, leading to Arizona putting him on the reserve/injured list. Byrd was released by Arizona on April 4.

Byrd finished his Hurricanes career with 106 receptions for 1,254 yards (11.8 avg.) and seven touchdowns while appearing in 51 games with 16 starts.

Byrd prepped at Hahnville High School in Boutte, La., where as a senior he caught 50 passes for 630 yards and 13 touchdowns at receiver and also played safety and recorded three interceptions.
