Nov 3, 2019; Charlotte, NC, USA; The Dallas Cowboys are solidifying their front line by signing former Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Dontari Poe. Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys have placed an emphasis on improving their defensive front this offseason, and another big free agent acquisition should help them accomplish that goal.

The Cowboys have agreed to a deal with veteran defensive tackle Dontari Poe, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

Poe had his best seasons earlier in his career when he was with the Kansas City Chiefs, but he has remained a productive player. The two-time Pro Bowler had four sacks last season with the Carolina Panthers and is a great space-filler on the interior defensive line.

Poe is the second former-first round pick the Cowboys have added to their defensive line in free agency. They also signed fellow former Panther Gerald McCoy, and both players should improve their front seven significantly.
