The Cowboys made it official in a relesae: Safety Gerald Sensabaugh signed a one-day contract with the Cowboys on Thursday, allowing him to retire with the team he spent his final four seasons.
The Cowboys released Sensabaugh in March in a salary-cap move, and Sensabaugh did not sign with another team. Dallas will place him on the reserve/retired list.
Sensabaugh, 29, played eight seasons. He spent his first four in Jacksonville, which made him a fifth-round pick in 2005.
In Dallas, Sensabaugh started 60 of 62 games. He made 306 tackles, two sacks, eight interceptions, three forced fumbles and had 30 pass breakups for the Cowboys.
He had been scheduled to make $3 million this season and count $3.8 million against the cap as part of a five-year, $22.5 million deal he signed in December 2011.
