Gerald Sensabaugh has waited three long years for this day. Hopefully, a five-year, $22.5 million ($8 million guaranteed) payday made the wait worth it.
As Rapid Reporter Nick Eatman reports, Sensabaugh has signed back-to-back one-year deals with Dallas since moving over from Jacksonville as a free agent.
But in the midst of the best season of his career with defensive coordinator Rob Ryan – the starting free safety has recorded 60 tackles, two interceptions and two forced fumbles -- Sensabaugh has proven himself worthy of the long-term deal that he’s badly wanted.
After Friday’s practice, Stephen Jones -- the Cowboys executive vice president -- intimated that a new deal could be signed soon, saying, “That’d be great, you never know.”
Now, we do. And Sensabaugh has to be mighty pleased about it.
