DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – 105.3 The Fan is getting word that the Cowboys signed safety Gerald Sensabaugh to a one-day contract today, allowing him to retire as a Dallas Cowboy.

Sensabaugh was originally drafted in the 5th round of the 2005 NFL Draft by Jacksonville out of North Carolina. He signed with the Cowboys as a free agent in March 2009.

Dallas originally signed Sensabaugh to a one-year deal in 09 to replace Roy Williams at strong safety, and he has been a regular in the secondary ever since.

Back on March 4, the Cowboys released Sensabaugh in a series of salary-cap shaving moves.  “I’ve been informed I’m being released for cap purposes,’’  Sensabaugh tweeted. “Had a great run. I appreciate the organization and my teammates.’’

For his career, Sensabaugh  started 84-of-112 games posting 469 tackles, two sacks, six tackles for loss, 43 pressures, forced four fumbles, five fumble recoveries and 14 interceptions.

The Cowboys are expected to move him to the reserved/retired list tomorrow.
