BREAKING: Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Talented Safety To Multi-Year Deal

The Dallas Cowboys have announced that they have signed safety Donovan Wilson to a three-year contract extension worth up to $24 million.

This is a significant move for the team as there were rumblings last week that he was likely not going to re-sign. In addition, Wilson was the Cowboys' top tackler last season and played a vital role in Dan Quinn's defense.

Wilson was a former sixth-round pick by the Cowboys in 2019 and has appeared in 51 games for the team in his four-year career. He had a career-high season in 2022 with 101 total tackles, five sacks, one interception, and nine quarterback hits.

His versatility and playmaking ability have made him a key asset to the Cowboys' defense, and the team is prioritizing keeping their top defensive players. 

The first two years of Wilson's new contract will be fully guaranteed, providing him with a nice payday and recognition for his contributions.

Negotiations heated up after the Cincinnati Bengals lost their starting safeties, and Wilson was seeking at least $10 million per year.

While the team has lost some players in free agency, retaining Wilson is a significant step in the right direction. 

Over his four-year career, the 28-year-old has recorded 203 total tackles, 8.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, three interceptions and six passes defended across 51 games played.
