Cowboys, Gerald Sensabaugh agree to contract extension

Fred Jackson,  Gerald Sensabaugh AP

Safety Gerald Sensabaugh has spent the last three years with the Cowboys on a series of one-year contracts, a streak that will come to an end after he agreed to a five-year extension with the team on Friday.

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that the deal is worth $22.5 millon. Watkins’ report does not have any information about how much of the money is guaranteed, but it will wind up being a big raise for Sensabaugh. He’s playing for $2.5 million this year after making less than $2 million in his first two years with the Cowboys after joining the team as a free agent from the Jaguars.

Sensabaugh has 60 tackles and two interceptions for the Cowboys this season. He’s been a very steady presence in Dallas’ secondary throughout his run with the team and was looking for a long-term deal before re-signing with the Cowboys this offseason. He’s finally gotten the deal, which looks like a reasonable recognition of those contributions.

    The only reason Sensabaugh appears to be decent is because everyone else in the Dallas secondary is complete garbage.

    Pretty sure this guy is going to pull a Ken Hamlin.

    Dallas needs CORNERS and FREE safety…although Sensabaugh has been better than Roy Williams was. Admittedly – William’s strength was at the lind of scrimmage – but he was the definition of inept in ANY kind of coverage. Sensabaugh can do an OK job of coverage for a SS. He’d probably look much better than he does if he had more competence at CB around him.

    You gotta be $hittin me. I have a buddy that’s a Cowboy fan and at least three times a game you’ll hear this phrase from him while watching the Cowboys, “Sensabaugh what the hell are doing/thinking”.

    Didn’t he get torched up the middle during the Redskins game a few weeks ago

    Why would anybody judge a player based on one game that was played almost two years ago? Wanna let everybody go that had a bad game that day? Romo turned the ball over 3 times.

    Sure, Dallas’ defensive backfield hasn’t been up to par, or healthy, this year. The issues start with Ball and Newman, as well as Scandrick at times. Sensabaugh has been fairly steady and the amount of his contract isn’t too much, mostly compared to Scandrick.

    I love Sensabaugh. It took me awhile but he has shown this year that he has a knack for the ball and is becoming a more consistent playmaker

    He plays hard in the secondary, and on special teams. He’s caused at least a couple fumbles this year, and he blocked a couple kicks on special teams

    Apparently Jerry feels the same way I do about hiim
