The Cowboys plan to sign restricted free agent defensive end Benson Mayowa to an offer sheet if he passes his physical, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Friday.
Mayowa arrived in Dallas Thursday for a meeting with the Cowboys.
Assuming everything checks out with his physical and Mayowa signs an offer sheet, the Raiders would have five days to match and retain Mayowa. Because the Raiders gave Mayowa the low tender and he’s a former undrafted free agent, the Raiders would receive no compensation if they don’t match.
Mayowa, 24, had 16 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and recorded a safety last season. He’s played in 30 games, started three and recorded two sacks over three seasons, though he only played in two games as a rookie in 2013.
