The Dallas Cowboys are still in the running for Chicago Bears free agent defensive tackle Henry Melton.

Melton, one of the top interior linemen still left on the market, is scheduled to visit the Cowboys on Monday, according to a source.

Melton’s visit to Valley Ranch will give the Cowboys the chance to lay out the red carpet and close a deal with a player who could help provide an immediate upgrade to a defensive line that lost two starters to other teams last week in tackle Jason Hatcher (Washington) and end DeMarcus Ware (Denver), the club’s all-time sacks leader.

The Cowboys have also expressed interest in ex-Cleveland quarterback Brandon Weeden, the 2012 first-round pick who was cut Wednesday by the Browns. Weeden also is scheduled to visit the Cowboys on Monday, according to a source. The former Oklahoma State standout will be 31 in October.

Melton started his free agent tour by visiting Minnesota on Thursday before heading west for Seattle. He left the Super Bowl champion Seahawks with no deal finalized and was back in Dallas on Sunday, the source said.

Several clubs are pursuing Melton, and on Sunday, the source said, “talks have heated up with several teams” and that included the Cowboys.

Melton (6-3, 295), who played in high school at Grapevine and in college at Texas, and Peppers both played for Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli while in Chicago.

The 27-year-old Melton reached the Pro Bowl in 2012 under Marinelli, recording 44 tackles and six sacks for the Bears. Melton had seven sacks in 2011.
