Cowboys To Sign Dontari Poe

Dontari Poe is coming to Dallas. On Wednesday, the Cowboys agreed to sign the defensive tackle, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets

Exact terms of the deal are not yet known and the two sides are still hashing out the fine print, but a (virtual) handshake agreement is in place. Poe figures to play a key role for the Cowboys, who are looking to remake their defensive line this offseason.

Poe, a 346-pound force, spent the last two seasons with the Panthers. This year, the club declined his option for the 2020 season, placing him on the free agent pile.

The Cowboys cast a wide net for defensive line help after losing Robert Quinn and Maliek Collins in free agency. Earlier this month, they landed fellow ex-Panthers notable Gerald McCoy, but they also did their homework on Ndamukong SuhDamon HarrisonMike Pennel, and others.

Poe made the Pro Bowl in 2013 and 2014 while he was with the Chiefs. Last year, he managed four sacks from the interior, despite being limited to just eleven regular season games. Historically, he’s been durable – before 2019, he never missed more than one contest in any campaign.

    Great signing. With Poe, McCoy & Lawrence the D-line should be stout.

      Need a RDE in addition to Gregory. Draft a CB and DE within the first 3 rounds.

      • Clint Byford

        Completely agree! Also, don’t forget about Crawford coming back from hip surgery. The definitely need to address the D-line and secondary early in the draft.

        • earmbrister

          Yeah, I thought they’d cut Crawford this offseason, but his versatility seems to be keeping him here.

        • earmbrister

          I agree. That’s why I said CB and DE somewhere in the first 3 rounds.

          The draft this year could be a real crapshoot without the normal physicals, workouts, and interviews.

    Wow trying to be like my boys, the ravens still dont have no QB. And still WON’T win A SB. This is OUR year BELIEVE IT. BUT GL lol

    Nice add, still need 1 more DT imo. If Suh were going to accept a cheaper 1 yr deal hed be here so I expect them to draft 1. Not in the first after the Taco failure. Probably go with BPA.

    No matter who the sign with Mcchokie on the sideline coaching and Jerra up in the booth picking his nose and having a “ Look at me” presser after the game they will still be the same old Team.
