The Dallas Cowboys have reached a deal with free agent safety Brodney Pool.
Coach Jason Garrett said Thursday that Pool is a very athletic safety who makes a lot of plays in the passing game. Terms were not disclosed.
Poole played the last two seasons for the New York Jets after five seasons with Cleveland, where he played for Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan and their new secondary coach Jerome Henderson.
Pool had 36 tackles and an interception last season. In 100 career games with Cleveland (2005-09) and the Jets (2010-11), he has 365 tackles with 13 interceptions.
Cleveland drafted Pool in the second round out of Oklahoma in 2005. Earlier this week, Dallas agreed to a five-year deal with cornerback Brandon Carr.
