Cowboys sign safety Elam to 1-year deal

Free agent safety Abram Elam has agreed to a
one-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys.
Elam will get $2.5 million for one season, a person familiar
with the negotiations tells The Associated Press on condition of
anonymity because the team has not announced the deal.
The deal Thursday comes a day after unrestricted free agent
safety Gerald Sensabaugh got a similar contract to remain with the
Cowboys.
Elam spent the past two seasons in Cleveland playing for new
Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Elam started 31 of 32 games
while playing for Ryan.
Elam began his NFL career with Dallas in 2006 as primarily a
special teams player for 15 games. He then played two seasons with
the New York Jets before going to Cleveland.
