Sensabaugh The Safe Bet

When the Cowboys brought safety Gerald Sensabaugh back on a one year deal it was assumed that they were giving themselves another year to get their young safeties some experience so they could take over next year. Well, it looks like the plan has changed. Sensabaugh signed a contract extension that will see him stay in Dallas for the next five years.

Sensabaugh was playing out his second one year contract in a row for the Cowboys this season, but made enough of an impression that the Cowboys wanted to lock him up long term. The financial terms were not disclosed by the team, but it is believed to be a five year deal in the neighborhood of $22 million.

Sensabaugh is in his seventh season as a pro. He spent the first four with Jacksonville, before signing with the Cowboys. He has started 65-of-93 games and recorded 335 tackles, 2 sacks, 5 tackles for loss, 33 pass breakups and 12 interceptions. In 43 games with the Cowboys, he has tallied 197 tackles, 8 interceptions and 8 pass breakups.

It looks like the Cowboys have more faith in Sensabaugh then they do in backups Barry Church and Danny McCray.

For Sensabaugh, he will need to keep up his strong play from this season. Now, there is a whole lot more attention once you sign a longterm deal.
