Dallas Cowboys Want To Sign DeAngelo Hall As A Free Safety

The Dallas Cowboys let safety Gerald Sensabaugh go and entertain free agency. They’re looking at former Washington Redskins DeAngelo Hall, whose played his entire career at cornerback, to come in as a free safety.

“Yes… Dallas is interested in DeAngelo Hall’s services….. as a Free Safety. #cowboys#Redskins,” tweeted Dan Hellie of NBC 4.

I don’t know how that would work given the “feud” between DeAngelo Hall and Dez Bryant. The two got into a pushing and shoving match during the Thanksgiving Day game.

DeAngelo Hall has also never played safety in his NFL career. He’s primarily played right cornerback, but as he is set to hit 30 years old next season and could be losing some of his quickness, transitioning safety could be an opportunity for him to prolong and his extend his career.

But the Cowboys need to bring someone in at safety and haven’t been rumored to be in the running for any of the notable free agent safeties so far. Dashon Goldson is headed to Tampa Bay to visit. Ed Reed has been linked to the 49ers and Patriots and Adrian Wilson hinted at his desire to play for the 49ers.

He brings an ability to intercept the ball with 39 career interceptions, a trait the Cowboys have been coveting for in their secondary. And safety is a huge hole in their defense currently.
