Kingsport's Sensabaugh agrees to one-year deal with Dallas Cowboys

Staff Report • Mar 10, 2009 at 12:00 AM

According to the Dallas Morning News, Kingsport native Gerald Sensabaugh has agreed to terms with the Dallas Cowboys.

The one-year deal fills a hole in the Cowboys secondary, as they cut former pro bowl safety Roy Williams last week.

The move should also please Cowboys fans in the Tri-Cities. Sensabaugh is now teammates with tight end Jason Witten, a native of nearby Elizabehton, and another standout player originiating from Northeast Tennessee.

Sensabaugh, 6-0, 204 pounds, is reunited with secondary coach Dave Campo and special teams coach Joe DeCamillis. The duo formerly coached Sensabaugh at Jacksonville, which selected the University of North Carolina player in the fifth-round pick of the 2005 NFL draft.

Sensabaugh, 25, started a career-high 13 games last season in Jacksonville and was credited with 82 tackles to go with four interceptions and four pass deflections. A fifth-round pick in 2005 by the Jaguars, Sensabaugh played in 50 games with 24 starts and had 168 tackles and six interceptions.

He has played mostly strong safety but started three games last season at free safety.
