    Like Miles Austin, Cowboys' safety Gerald Sensabaugh has not yet signed his tender offer. Also like Austin, Sensabaugh came to the team's voluntary offseason conditioning program a little late, opting to spend time working out and preparing for the 2010 season independent of the team.

    The safety returned to Valley Ranch on Monday, according to his agent, Kevin Conner, per ESPNDallas.com.

    Sensabugh was offered a second round tender, worth $1.81 million. He has not signed yet, but seems optimistic--as does the team--that a long-term deal will be worked out. Jerry Jones, in fact, expressed a similar sentiment shortly after the season ended, putting Sensabaugh in the same regard as breakout star of 2009, Miles Austin.

    "We are extremely optimistic of making him a long-term Cowboy very soon," Conner said.

    Austin spent the first two weeks of Dallas's conditioning program in California, working out with a personal trainer. He is also waiting on a long-term deal, though there is no timetable in place--the result, in all likelihood, of the uncapped 2010 season.

    Sensabaugh had 66 tackles, eight defended passes and one interception in 2009, while playing in 15 games.
