The Dallas Cowboys announced Monday that they’ve officially re-signed LB Justin Durant to a contract.
- Adam Caplan reports that Durant’s one-year contract with the Cowboys is worth $965,000 and includes $200,000 fully guaranteed.
Clarence Hill reported earlier in the day that the Cowboys could have a deal in place with Durant by the end of the day, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.
Signing Durant to a contract will bolster their linebacker depth now that they’ll be without Rolando McClain for 10 games after he was recently suspended.
Durant, 30, is a former second-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2007. He spent four years in Jacksonville before signing on with the Lions in 2011. Durant later played two years for the Cowboys before signing three-year, $10.8 million contract with the Falcons.
Atlanta elected to cut Durant loose back in February.
In 2015, Durant appeared in 13 games for the Falcons and recorded 82 tackles, no sacks, and three pass defenses.
