  • Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Agrees to re-sign with Dallas

    Wilson agreed Tuesday to re-sign with the Cowboys on a three-year deal worth up to $24 million with $13.5 million guaranteed, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Wilson bounced back from an injury-plagued 2021 and posted a career-best campaign in 2022, totaling 101 tackles, five sacks, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and an interception across 17 regular-season appearances. The 2019 sixth-round pick parlayed his strong play into a sizable payday and should be a quality IDP option again in 2023. Jayron Kearse and Malik Hooker (thumb) are both under contract through 2023, but as long as Wilson is healthy, he should be able to carve out a solid role in Dallas' stacked secondary.

  • Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Career-best campaign

    Wilson recorded 101 tackles (77 solo), including five sacks, across 17 regular-season games in 2022. He added two passes defended with one interception, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

    The fourth-year safety had trouble staying healthy in 2021, but he avoided injuries the following year and emerged as a true IDP star in defensive coordinator Dan Quinn's aggressive scheme. It was a good time for Wilson to post career highs in tackles and sacks, too, as he's an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The Cowboys have some depth at safety with both Jayron Kearse and Malik Hooker under contract through 2023, but the team may make re-signing Wilson a priority given how good a fit he is for Quinn's defense.

  • Cowboys' Donovan Wilson: Deemed questionable

    Wilson (illness) didn't practice Wednesday and is considered questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Giants, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Wilson collected seven tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss to the Packers.

    Wilson was one of four Dallas defenders to tie with a team-high seven stops against Green Bay, though he'd played the second lowest defensive snaps (52) of this group. The safety was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, though it's unclear if this ultimately affected his playing time Sunday. Nevertheless, Wilson is now just six tackles shy of setting a new career high in this category.
