Sensabaugh deal, and programming note

By Dan Graziano

Before I head off for the weekend, we have a bit of Friday news in the NFC East. The Dallas Cowboys have apparently agreed with free safety Gerald Sensabaugh on a five-year, $22.5 million deal of which $8 million is guaranteed. Calvin Watkins tells me it's a good deal for Sensabaugh, who's having a nice year for Dallas, because it gives him the stability he was seeking last year in free agency before he settled for the Cowboys' one-year offer. I love Calvin like a neurotic brother who calls me to complain when I don't like his stories enough, but he knows and I know there's no such thing as "stability" in NFL contracts. Still, good for Sensabaugh if this is what he wants. And I guess the Cowboys can cross safety off their offseason to-do list.

As for the programming note, and because I know you guys like to know what I'm up to...

I'm going to Dallas, obviously. Leaving tomorrow, having a nice Mexican dinner and maybe a beverage in Fort Worth and then going to the Giants-Cowboys game on Sunday night. Obviously I will be tracking the Redskins-Patriots game and the Eagles-Dolphins game and posting my thoughts on those as they end and throughout Sunday night and into Monday morning. But we all know it's all about Cowboys-Giants in the NFC East this week, and I'll be on the scene along with and to get you all you need to know from there.

Enjoy the weekend.
