Strong safety Gerald Sensabaugh was excited to get back on the field with his teammates after being allowed to practice for the first time Thursday night.
But while he was familiar with the players, he acknowledged that he new scheme and playbook under new coordinator Rob Ryan had his head spinning.
"It’s spinning quite a bit," Sensabaugh said. " It’s the first day learning the system. They’ve been around the system for eight, nine days and I’ve had just 24 hours to look over it. I’m just in there trying to make plays. Once I learn the system, I’ll be fine. But I need to learn the playbook. That’s first and foremost what I need to do personally. But we’re coming along as a team. Guys are making plays. It’s very exciting what we’ve got going on out here."
Sensabaugh said he can't wait until free safety Abe Elam gets here. Elam played in the scheme the past two years at Cleveland and should be practice on Friday. He finalized a one-year deal to join the Cowboys late Wednesday night and spent Thursday traveling.
"I’ll have to go over the playbook with him and see the tips for learning this thing," Sensabaugh said. " I’m sure that he’s a great player and we’ll have fun back there."
