The Cowboys expect the NFL to suspend former defensive tackle Josh Brent for four games.
According to the report, Dallas plans on re-signing Brent after he is able to resume his career.
Brent, 26, was convicted in January of intoxication manslaughter for a December 2012 crash that killed his friend and teammate Jerry Brown and was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probation. He was released from jail in June.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said the team would create a spot on its roster for Brent if he is reinstated by the league.
