Sensabaugh coming back to the Cowboys for $2.5 million for one year; Is Elam next to shore up safety spot?

The Cowboys have filled one of their holes at safety with the re-signing of free agent Gerald Sensabaugh.

He announced the news on his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon: "Headed back to the D."

Sensabaugh has played strong safety for the Cowboys the past two years. He had hoped to cash in big on the free agent market. But it now appears he is settling for the familiarity of his old team, which is in the market for two safeties but had no plans on paying big money.

According to source, he will sign a one-year deal for $2.5 million.

Even with Sensabaugh seemingly in the fold, the Cowboys are not done at the safety position. Vice president Stephen Jones said the team is looking to add two safeties in free agency.

The Cowboys have been talking to Cleveland safety Abe Elam, who played under defensive coordinator Rob Ryan the past years and would be a natural fit in Dallas. The two sides have yet to come to terms on an agreement and the Cowboys plan in being patient in hopes his contract demands come down to their liking.

Bumped into Lionel Messi a few years ago at HK Int'l Airport. He was in front of me in line at securtiy with a few friends. It was summer, so i guess he was in HK on holiday.

Abe Elam is HUGE UPGRADE over Ball.

Elam will be in by the end of the week!
