The Dallas Cowboys have so far had one of the most eventful offseasons of any NFL team, highlighted by the extension of Amari Cooper as well as the continued contract negotiations with Dak Prescott. However, one of their more under-the-radar moves involves bulking up their defensive line.

The Cowboys have agreed to a deal with defensive tackle Dontari Poe on a deal that is worth $10.5 million over the span of two years.

The Cowboys have gotten themselves an absolute steal in Poe. One of the their biggest needs this offseason was to beef up their defensive line, and this signing does just that at a great price. After also acquiring defensive tackle Gerald McCoy this offseason, the Cowboys defensive line can cause some problems for opposing backfields.

Poe is coming off a season where he recorded 22 tackles and 4 sacks in only 11 games played. He was a Pro Bowl-caliber defensive tackle in 2013-2014 with the Kansas City Chiefs when he recorded a total of 96 tackles and 10.5 sacks.

As the Cowboys are looking to make a Super Bowl run, they are doing a great job of addressing positions of need.
