Not Dun Yet: Cowboys, Lance Dunbar Agree To 1 Year Deal

After all of our woes, the Cowboys finally inked a deal today to bring in a 1,000 yard receiver. Well, actually, not a receiver. And, not actually 1,000 yards, but he was on pace to get that.

In any event, the Cowboys signed to a one year contract on Thursday. According to Adam Caplan and Adam Schefter of , the one year deal is worth up to $1.75 million.

The Cowboys have showed faith, and patience, in Dunbar as a secret offensive weapon ever since he got to Dallas in 2012. As an undrafted , Dunbar attended with the Cowboys in 2012, and went on to make the that season. He was later promoted to the active squad where he played a role as a rotational , and gunner.

When healthy, Dunbar could arguably be tagged as one of the most versitile running backs in football. However, that's a big “when.”

After struggling with off and on throughout his first four seasons, Dunbar will likely have a year to prove that he can put them behind him, stay healthy, and provide a solid offensive spark.

The Cowboys use Dunbar in a variety of ways, most notably being his receiving abilities on screens, and his return abilities on special teams.

With turning 29 this August, and the lack of high profile pickups in free agency, if Dallas doesn't go after a running back high in the draft, Dunbar could be in line for a breakout season.

Dallas Cowboys fan since the Drew Bledsoe "era." I love Tony AND Dak. I like to think that I'm the most objective that a fan can get, while still being a diehard, which I truly believe is the 8th wonder of the world. Go Cowboys!!
