    Looking for special teams help and perhaps some depth in the secondary, the Dallas Cowboys have signed familiar face Danny McCray to a one-year deal, according to Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas.

    The Cowboys signed McCray as an undrafted free agent out of LSU back in 2010, and he made his presence known immediately on special teams. He led the team in special teams tackles in each of his first two seasons with the team and his 28 special teams tackles in his rookie season were the third-most in team history.

    In 2012, McCray started 10 games at safety after Barry Church suffered a season-ending Achilles tear, and these stand as the only starts of his career. He went back to being used mostly on special teams in 2013.

    Last year, McCray went to the Chicago Bears to be reunited with special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis, who coached him in Dallas for the first three years of his career.
