Brian Waters returns to help Cowboys at guard 14 years after he was undrafted rookie in camp

Brian Waters is back in the locker room of the Dallas Cowboys for the first time since he was an undrafted rookie trying to make the team as a fullback or tight end 14 years ago.

Now he's a six-time Pro Bowler who played guard for Kansas City and New England. Injuries have created such a need at his position that the Cowboys brought him back days before the start of the season after a year away from football.

Waters scoffs at the idea of being a "savior." He says he is simply trying to help a "supremely talented" team.

The 36-year-old doesn't know if he will play in the opener Sunday night against the New York Giants.
