Dan Connor strikes 2-year deal with Cowboys

Dan Connor signed a two-year contract Thursday with the Dallas Cowboys.

The two-time Delaware County Daily Times high school football player of the year reached agreement with the Cowboys in the afternoon.

Though reports and tweets stated Connor would sign with the Eagles, those exaggerations were news to the veteran middle linebacker.

Dan Connor's new boss.
Connor was impressed with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and impressed by the opulence of Cowboys Stadium, which cost $1 billion and change.

The 26-year-old Connor likely will compete with Bruce Carter for a starting inside linebacker job with the Cowboys. Sean Lee, who teamed with Connor at Penn State, is the other inside linebacker.

The Cowboys aren’t expected to bring back free agent linebackers Keith Brooking and Bradie James.

Murray Street Coffee, Dallas, worth a try.
Connor played all four of his NFL seasons with the Carolina Panthers, who selected him in the third round of the 2008 draft. He missed most of his rookie season with a torn ACL and two years ago, injured a hip.
