Gerald Sensabaugh had hoped to finally sign a lucrative multyear deal after playing the last two seasons on one-year contracts. The glut of safeties on the free agent market helped kill his chances, and after flirtation with the Texans, Sensabaugh is back with the Cowboys on yet another one-year agreement. This one is for $2.5 million and gives him one more chance to prove that he is worth a commitment.
The Cowboys found the short term deal favorable because they like what they see in second year safeties Barry Church and Akwasi Owusu-Ansah. Bringing back Sensabaugh gives the pair one more year to develop but keeps open the possibility that one or both could start next season.
Dallas is still talking with Abram Elam, a former Cowboy whose experience with Rob Ryan makes his report date less of an issue. Newly signed players can practice Thursday, so Wednesday may be an important day for Elam in his search for a new team.
