Free Agent K Dan Bailey Has Turned Down Four ‘Very Good Offers’, Waiting For ‘Right Team’


Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, reports that free agent K Dan Bailey has turned down four “very good offers,” and more calls have been made to his agent based on Sunday’s outcomes.

Florio adds that Bailey plans to wait for the “right team” before agreeing to a new deal.

A number of teams could be in the market for kicker help next week including the Browns, Vikings, and Rams.

Bailey worked out for the Jets in recent weeks, but wasn’t signed to a contract following the session.

Bailey, 30, wound up signing on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State back in 2011. He was entering the fifth year of his seven-year, $22.5 million contract and was set to make a base salary of $3.4 million for the 2018 season when the Cowboys elected to cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

In 2017, Bailey appeared in 12 games for Dallas and recorded 15 field goals in 20 attempts (75 percent), 26 extra points through 28 attempts (92.9 percent) and 32 touchbacks.
