Report: Dallas Cowboys work out deal to bring back key defensive starter

The Dallas Cowboys reached an agreement with Jayron Kearse, their last offseason acquisition safety. According to Michael Gehlken of NFL Network, the agreement was reached on Monday afternoon.

According to the NFL analyst, Kearse’s deal with Dallas will be good for two years. He also revealed the financial details of the new contract.

“ It is two-year, $10M contract for Cowboys safety Jayron Kearse, source said. Deal is worth a maximum of $11M. Nice pay day for the 2016 seventh-round pick, who fills a number of roles on Dallas defense,” wrote Gehlken via Twitter.

The Cowboys signed Kearse to a $1.13 million one-year contract last offseason. The former seventh-round draft pick performed better than his contract and exceeded the expectations of the team. Kearse played in 15 of Dallas’s 17 games this season. He recorded 101 tackles in those 15 games.
