The Dallas Cowboys, who have depth problems at the safety position, signed restricted free agent Danny McCray on Friday.

McCray, who started 10 games for Dallas last season, finished second on the team with a career-high 87 tackles.

Barry Church is penciled in as the starter, but he's coming off a torn Achilles injury. The Cowboys also recently signed veteran Will Allen and Matt Johnson, who missed his entire rookie season with a hamstring injury.

McCray was one of the Cowboys' better special teams players, finishing second on the team with 18 tackles.

Dallas has the 18th overall pick in the NFL draft.
