The Dallas Cowboys have been very active on the defensive side of the ball in free agency. They signed veteran Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Defensive Tackle Gerald McCoy last week. Now, a former teammate of McCoy’s is joining him in Dallas.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys have agreed to terms with Defensive Tackle Dontari Poe.
The #Cowboys have agreed to basic terms on a deal for free agent DT Dontari Poe, source said. They are finalizing the language on the deal, but it will get done. Another big-name former #Panthers DT in free agency.
Poe was a two-time pro bowler (2013, 2014) and Second-Team All-Pro (2013) during his five-year stint with the Kansas City Chiefs. After a year in with the Atlanta Falcons in 2017, he spent the last two seasons with the Carolina Panthers.
He’s played in 121 out of a possible 128 games in his career (118 starts). Not only can he be a force in a 4-3 set but he can also take snaps as a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. Now, the Cowboys have added two very solid interior pieces on the defensive line in McCoy and Poe which they desperately needed. More details to come.
