REPORT: Dallas Cowboys Sign EDGE Tarell Basham to a 2-year Contract

Dallas Cowboys continue to add depth pieces along the defensive line.

The Dallas Cowboys have had a busy Thursday afternoon in free agency. First they sign Carlos Watkins and Brent Urban to help fortify the interior of their defensive line and now they’ve added more depth at defensive end in former New York Jets EDGE Tarell Basham.

It got done: Cowboys have agreed to terms with ex-Jets edge defender Tarell Basham, source said. Two-year contract is worth up to $6.5M. https://t.co/PhhnWsj4TD

Tarell Basham was a former third-round pick in 2017 by the Indianapolis Colts, but has spent the last three seasons in New York with the Jets. He was someone the Dallas Cowboys were rumored to have an interest in pre-draft in 2017, which is likely why they pulled the trigger on signing him in free agency.

The 6’4″, 266 pound former Ohio University product played in all 16 games last year and started nine of them. He recorded 19 solo tackles, 12 assists, four QB sacks, and three forced fumbles which earned him a PFF grade of 64.6.

With the Dallas Cowboys the 27-year-old will provide some much-needed depth at defensive end behind projected starters DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory. And while it’s not the splashes of moves it is yet another solid offseason in addition that should help solidify the Cowboys defensive front.

What do you think?

  1. Cowboys have been busy with some decent FA signings. Maybe not the big splashy types, but at least good depth/rotational players, maybe even a little more. Always need depth on the D-line to stay fresh. At least they are trying to target a weak spot.

    • I agree. Upgrading/providing much-needed depth to defensive front was an offseason priority and it looks like they are at least trying to address that need.

  2. I love the moves Dallas has made today. Adding Basham and Urban to our DL make for very solid additions. Now if we can use our premium picks to address the secondary and linebackers i will be really ecstatic about this upcoming season.

    • I wouldn’t go as far as saying I love the moves the Cowboys have made in free agency so far, but they are very solid. That in itself should be viewed as positive considering how they just about completely bombed with their free agent signings last year.
