BREAKING: LB Leighton Vander Esch is back, re-signs on a two-year deal

Everyone drop what you're doing because the made ANOTHER move on this action-packed Tuesday afternoon. 

According to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys are re- — AKA the “Wolf Hunter” — on a two-year deal worth $11 million.

This signing arguably solidifies that the team has their two top notable locked up, and now they can focus on improving the team in different personnel groups.

Before we jump into how GREAT this signing is, let's slide back to my reference about this afternoon, where I described it as “action-packed.” 

I use that adjective because this re-signing came an hour after the team orchestrated a trade for former All-Pro . Oh, and I almost forgot, the team also successfully re-signed S Donovan Wilson this morning.

So could we say it has been an eventful day for Cowboy fans? Most definitely. 

It's like the is hinting that they want to win. Isn't it crazy?


Jumping back to the significance of bringing Vander Esch back — it's a home run that there will be some continuity among the LB group. Many people in the NFL world predicted that Linebacker would have a new running mate, but the front office proved them wrong. 

Vander Esch is coming off his best season since his early years — and he's a key cog in 's . While his are always a concern, Vander Esch played his tail off last season and earned another contract with the Boys.

Plus, the LSU linebacker duo of and can still grow behind Vander Esch, which isn't terrible for them and the team.

For now, it's Wolf Hunting time, baby.
