The Cowboys got their first outside free agent earlier Friday, agreeing to terms with receiver James Washington. They got their second shortly after that.

The team has agreed to a deal with edge rusher Dante Fowler, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Fowler reunites with Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who signed him in Atlanta in 2020. Fowler will help replace Randy Gregory.

Gregory agreed to a deal with the Cowboys before reversing course a few hours later and signing with the Broncos. That left a huge hole at defensive end opposite DeMarcus Lawrence.

Fowler, the No. 3 overall choice of the Jaguars in 2016, has 35 sacks, 59 quarterback hits and 10 forced fumbles in his career. He spent the past two seasons with the Falcons, recording a total of 7.5 sacks and 16 quarterback hits before the team released him Feb. 16.

  1. Mediocre- was good one season when playing on the same line as Donald. Who’s going to create that situation now in Dallas?

  2. never underestimate a professional athlete out to prove his worth, just sayin

  3. We need solid we need rotation we need decent talent and we got this today at a few positions. Over paying for Coop Gregory Dlaw Zeke Collins just to name a few in This past 5 years Got Us NOWHERE! Love the change! Must be McClay!
    Draft great and full homes The Patriots way! I’m digging it! Save the coin for Diggs / Lamb and others ……. Parsons!

  4. He’ll never play to his elite draft status which follows him around but only proves JAX overestimated him. Still, he’s serviceable and maybe DQ can get more out of him.

  5. One good year lining up with Aaron Donald. Came to the draft with 6K shoes without a contract and your career has proven that your motivation is not about football.
