The Cowboys hired a safety Monday, but the name isn’t exactly the one fans were looking for.

Instead of a veteran, Dallas added an undrafted rookie.

With injuries to starter Xavier Woods and Jameill Showers, the Cowboys needed depth at the position. They added Dominick Sanders, Todd Archer of ESPN reports. Sanders worked out for the team last week in Oxnard, California.

Sanders will take Showers spot on the roster. Showers tore an anterior cruciate ligament in Saturday’s preseason game.

Sanders went undrafted after setting the Georgia record for career interceptions with 16. He spent time in the offseason with Philadelphia.

  1. Guys going to be an all pro! Calling it right now Defensive Rookie Of The Year! Looks better then E.T. Hell of a pick up! Outstanding job Jerry! Calling it now GOAT! What was his name again?

  2. R E L A X. No real games have been played. I’m a not in favor of trading draft picks away, so let this play out. McClay and Stephen have been doing well, so let’s just see how this goes

  3. Well I believe everyone’s patience is running out! It’s hard to see that we have cap space to use and this should be a no brainer, BUT I do understand that NOBODY has even been mentioned besides the Raiders in getting ET. I just saw where the Raiders are interested in someone else… Hopefully some of the info being provided from the STAR is that IT WILL HAPPEN be4 the season starts! I hope so!

  4. No name safety, travis fred having stingers, Martin’s knee is hurting, connor William’s cant block half the time Dak continues his hi throwing passes, backs up look terrible as usual, wont make Rico a receiving tight end if he cant block that good then make him a dam receiver! 8-8

    I agree ALMOST 100 percent. BUT there comes a time when you have to put all pro experience where it has been a need for a very very long time. You cant keep drafting and developing at EVERY position. The rebuild has to stop at some point and START WINNING NOW & CHAMPIONSHIPS. Put E.T. back there with our young secondary give them that all pro experience and talent and let the dline go crazy! E.T. improves 3 positions, S, Cb’s, and Dline! Heck Lb’s to. Just one all pro guy WHERE needed can effect a Defense! Win Now … Give em a 3 and a 4 so we can stop cussing at our tv’s!

  6. When Jerry counts the money he knows that nine an seven earns him just as much as 13 an three so why worry.

  7. Tee Bone- get a clue!!! We don’t need to get robbed by the Hawks because they don’t have a 2nd rounder in next years draft. We don’t need ET holding us up for $$ Seattle SHOULDVE paid him. We need that money for Tank & other loyal Cowboys. Iloka got cut by the BENGALS – why would we want him. Besides, I heard in K. Richards scheme he’s more a SS than FS. Sanders is young, hungry & a Big Play waiting to happen. Now with X coming back, Frazier, & Tyree Robinson we will have some depth as well.

  8. HELLOOOOOO!THE TRUE FREE SAFETY THAT WILL MAKE THIS DEFENSE ONE OF THE LEAGUES BEST OVERNIGHT IS STILL ON THE STREET WILL BE A LOT CHEAPER THAN ET & NOT MUCH FALL OFF. A FORMER ALL PRO 26YO HIS NAME IS ERIC REID. IT IS A TRAVESTY THAT HE IS STILL AVAILABLE & ONLY PROVES HIS COLLUSION CASE. SO JERRAH HE’S PROMISED TO BE A GOOD BOY AND NOT PEACEFULLY PROTEST THE INJUSTICE AND POLICE BRUTALITY PLACED ON THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY ON A DAILY BASIS AND CONCENTRATE ON PLAYING FOOTBALL. SO DO WHATS BEST FOR THE TEAM SIGN WHO WOULD BE THE BEST FREE SAFETY IN THE DIVISION & ARGUABLY THE SECOND BEST IN THE CONFERENCE.
