Dallas Cowboys restricted free agent safety Gerald Sensabaugh has signed his one-year, $1.815 million tender offer as what he hopes is a step toward getting a long-term deal done with the team.
“We are still very optimistic and extremely confident a long-term deal will happen,” Sensabaugh’s agent, Kevin Conner, told the Dallas Morning News. “Gerald wants to focus on the upcoming season and playing at a high level.”
The Cowboys reportedly want to work out a long-term deal with Sensabaugh, who started 15 games for the Cowboys last season and played through a broken thumb for much of the year. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said, however, that the league’s uncertain labor situation makes it harder for him to commit to long-term deals.
Wide receiver Miles Austin is now the Cowboys’ only unsigned restricted free agent.
