IRVING, Texas (AP) -- 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.

1. Re-hire another offensive coordinator: Hiring Sparano as the offensive coordinator was a bad move in my opinion. I think it was more of a personality move, because Sparano is well liked around the league. However, his offenses with the Dolphins were far from great, and most times just bad. Rex Ryan clearly made this move to get back to old-fashioned ground and pound football...
UPDATE: The Washington Redskins have signed safety Brandon Meriweather. So, the New York Jets have been saved from themselves there. Look for them to make an aggressive push for Reggie Nelson.

Cornerback Brandon Carr has agreed to a five-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys worth $50.1M, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Carr was the most sought after cornerback on the free agent market behind Cortland Finnegan, and Dallas should be thrilled they were able to reel him in after fielding a porous secondary in 2011. And releasing declining 33-year-old vet Terence...

TweetThe New York Giants have signed ex Dallas Cowboys TE Martellus Bennett to a 1 year contract reportedly worth $2.5 million.
This is a smart move by the organization considering both Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum suffered serious injuries during the Super Bowl and are not expected back at the start of the season.
Bennett is a talented player who has had limited opportunities...
