The Dallas Cowboys lost another defender to free agency on Tuesday, when safety and special teams ace Danny McCray agreed to a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears.
The Cowboys picked McCray up as an undrafted free agent out of LSU back in 2010 and, in the four seasons since, he’s recorded 119 tackles and three pass break-ups in 60 games played.
McCray’s most productive season came in 2012 when, after starter Barry Church suffered a torn Achilles in Week 3, he finished with 71 tackles and a pair of passes defended. A good deal of this production came when McCray stepped into the starting role for a few weeks after Church’s injury. McCray was eventually demoted and even took a pay-cut to remain with the team in 2013.
With the signing, McCray will be reunited with former Cowboys special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis.
