Having signed two players already on Monday in Chuma Edoga and Ronald Jones, not to mention bringing back Ronald Jones, the Dallas Cowboys continued their free agent flurry by adding another move to the transaction wire.
It was reported on Monday afternoon that Dallas has re-signed defensive end Dante Fowler to a 1-year contract. Since the beginning of free agency the Cowboys have had a sharp focus on retaining their own assets and Fowler is another example of such. By signing Fowler the team retains a veteran that was a key depth piece on their dominant defense.

Dante returns to a a pass rush unit intact that features the like DeMarcus Lawrence, Micah Parsons and an ascending Sam Williams. After announcing the move the Cowboys can now turn their attention to fortifying their interior and the 2023 NFL Draft that is fast-approaching.
