Kazee is in his first season with the Cowboys. He's started the first six games of the season and has tallied 16 stops, one interception, and one forced fumble. Before coming to Dallas, Kazee spent four years with the Falcons.
Last week The Dallas Morning News' Calvin Watkins reported that Kazee was fined $6,264 after being hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct foul during the game against the New York Giants.
