It’s unclear if the deal is signed or simply agreed to. Herring thought he had a deal ironed out with the Cowboys back in March, only to see Dallas pull the plug before pen was put to paper. Herring also announced that deal via Twitter when he wrote: “Blessed to be playing in the Big D this year and to be a part of Cowboys organization!”
Herring, a seven-year NFL veteran, has played primarily in a reserve role as a linebacker for the Seahawks and Saints since being drafted in the fifth round in 2007. However, he has blossomed into a strong special teamer, serving as the captain of the unit for the Saints in 2013 and recording 13 special teams tackles.
We haven’t heard much from the 31-year-old since his September audition for the Titans, but it looks like he has finally found a home.
