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 ESPNDallas.com and ESPNNewYork.com to get you all you need to know from there.

Enjoy the weekend.
