Heath was an undrafted free agent out of Saginaw Valley State for the Cowboys back in 2013 and has spent seven years in Dallas.
Though most of his time was spent as a special teams ace, Heath has been a starter at safety over the past three seasons for the Cowboys. In 106 games for the Cowboys, Heath had 346 tackles, 12 for loss, 8 interceptions, and 5 forced fumbles.
Heath marks the fourth starter the Cowboys have lost to free agency so far, including Byron Jones, Maliek Collins, and Robert Quinn. They have also lost Randall Cobb and Jason Witten on the offensive side of the ball.
