The exact terms of the agreement are not yet known and the two sides still hash the fine print, but a (virtual) handshake agreement is in place. Poe should play a key role for the Cowboys, who are looking to redo their defensive line this offseason.
Poe, a 346 pound force, has spent the past two seasons with the Panthers. This year, the club declined its option for the 2020 season, placing it on the stack of free agents.
Cowboys cast wide net to help defensive line after losing Robert Quinn and Maliek Collins in free agency. Earlier this month, they landed other notable former Panthers Gerald McCoybut they also did their homework on Ndamukong Suh, Damon harrison, Mike Pennel, and others.
Poe made the Pro Bowl in 2013 and 2014 while he was with the Chiefs. Last year he had four sacks from the inside, although he was only limited to eleven regular season games. Historically, it has been sustainable – before 2019, it never missed more than one contest in a campaign.
