The are bringing back a key starter for their .

On Tuesday morning, news broke that and the team agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth up to $24 million with the first two years fully guaranteed ($13.5 million). The deal was confirmed by Wilson's agents Kevin Conner and Robert Brown.

To this point, the team did not make any moves and lost two players to other teams. This is a win for the Cowboys. Keeping Wilson felt like it may not happen after the was given to .

Wilson had a heck of a season, leading the team in tackles.

This might be the best the Cowboys have had in a LONG time. With Wilson returning, they also have , and will get back from .

Not to mention they have on the outside, and let's not forget and , but we could also see them use some picks in the draft to bolster it up even more.

The good news for the defense is that is just keeps getting better. returns, and now Wilson re-signs with the team. With a career-high 101 tackles and five last season, Quinn will once again have a chance to have the best defensive unit in all of football.

Wilson started every game in 2022, and had the most sacks by a in the NFL. For a defense that led the league in takeaways and only allowed 20.1 points per game, this is huge.

If they are not going to make any moves on , they need to make sure this defense stays one of the best in all of football.

Retaining Wilson was No. 47 on Gregg Rosenthal's top 101 . (works for the NFL, and is also a co-host on the Around the ).

We all had plenty of questions regarding if the Cowboys would bring him back, including myself. Wilson brings that down-hill presence to the the defense and has the ability to play -type role if LVE does not get brought back.

With the team losing to the Bills and to the Titans, it was nice to see the team finally bring someone back.

, the teams second-leading tackler in 2022 might be on his way out, so it was probably a good move to at least get someone back in the door.

Nonetheless, my post probably sounds like a bunch of nothing. In the end, it is really about me being happy they brought Wilson back. He was a huge key to the great defense a year ago. If they can get a repeat performance from him, they can be just as good.

It is only day two, I really hope the Cowboys are not done with making moves.
