Jason Hatcher is returning to the Dallas Cowboys.
Hatcher, who visited the Denver Broncos last week, has agreed to a three-year deal with the Cowboys worth around $6 million, according to the Dallas Morning News. Signing the veteran defensive end was a top priority for the team, particularly after Stephen Bowen departed for a $27 million deal in Washington around a week ago.
In the past week, the team has signed three defensive ends in Marcus Spears, Kenyon Coleman and now Hatcher. The team was also supposed to be in the hunt for former Packer Cullen Jenkins, but Jenkins, as you may have heard, went to Philadelphia in the Eagles’ free agent bonanza last week.
The team now has a solid group of defensive ends, with the aforementioned three joining Igor Olshansky. Now, the team can turn its attention to other areas of need, like safety, a position that has yet to be addressed as Gerald Sensabaugh tests the free agent market in search of a hefty payday.
