The Cowboys have signed their first player of free agency. Sort of. The club has reached an agreement on a two-year contract with outside linebacker Justin Durant. The problem is the Cowboys have just slightly more than $100,000 to spend at the moment. That means Durant will have to wait to sign the deal until the club clears the necessary salary cap room. He tweeted Tuesday afternoon that is is time for him to “learn that South Dallas Swag.” Durant was one of three players to visit Valley Ranch on Monday. The others were safeties Michael Huff and Will Allen. The team’s needs at safety appear to override that of outside linebacker. But Durant is a solid player who has started the past two seasons in Detroit and has started a total of 60 games in his six seasons in the NFL. He is strong against the run and is only 27.
