The Dallas Cowboys have reached an agreement with safety Damontae Kazee, the team announced Thursday night.

It’s a one-year deal, according to multiple reports.

Kazee had visited the Cowboys for the past few days and had also made a stop with the Detroit Lions before reaching an agreement in Dallas. Kazee joins former Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, who is now the defensive coordinator for the Cowboys.

Kazee appeared in 52 games for the Falcons during his first four seasons in the NFL. Kazee, a former fifth-round roster from San Diego state, tied Xavien Howard and Kyle Fuller for the most interceptions in the league in 2018 with seven.

Kazee played in only four games for Atlanta last year before a torn Achilles ended his season.

He had 199 tackles, 10 interceptions, and five forced fumbles during his four years with the Falcons.
