Raiders target George Iloka agrees to Cowboys contract — National Football League free agency

Already with a multitude of Boise State football ties, the Cowboys added another Saturday when they signed free agent safety George Iloka to a one-year deal.

With the departure of Iloka and Sendejo, the Vikings are putting a lot of their eggs in the basket of Anthony Harris to be the new starter next to Harrison Smith in Minnesota's secondary. that leaves Jayron Kearse as the likely backup and a spot to be filled by a rookie or an cheap free agent. ESPN's Todd Archer reported that Iloka's durability was key, as Berry, a five-time Pro Bowler, has played in just three games the last two seasons.

The Cowboys are finally adding a veteran safety. Their initial interest was in the most coveted player at the position on the free agent market in Earl Thomas, but he was swept up by the Baltimore Ravens over a week ago.

His tackling ability mixed with his coverage prowess should likely make him Dallas' leading safety into the first few games next year.

After being drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, he spent six seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals and then previous year with the Minnesota Vikings.

He has 362 career tackles, 32 pass breakups and nine interceptions playing both safety spots.
