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

Would Taylor Rapp selection round out Cowboys safety valves in 2019

With Iloka now on the team, the Cowboys have DeMarcus Lawrence, Leighton Vander Esch, Darian Thompson and Cedrick Wilson all from Boise State. Iloka turns 29 years old next week.

The Dallas Cowboys are signing safety George Iloka, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reported Saturday.

Clayton Geathers chose to resign with the Indianapolis Colts on a one-year deal and Eric Berry is still a free agent.

The WSJ also reported that Apple and Roku are in talks to bring Apple's new TV services to Roku owners. Services revenue reached nearly $11-billion in the holiday quarter, up 19% from a year earlier.

He's started 79 of his 99 career games since being a fifth-round pick by Cincinnati in 2012. Iloka met with the Cowboys on Friday and was the third safety to meet with the club during the week along with Clayton Geathers and Eric Berry.

Given his skill set, Iloka would be a much better fit in the Cowboys' scheme - where they play mostly Cover 1 and Cover 3 - as a strong safety, playing a healthy portion of snaps around the box. The free agent safety agreed to a contract less than 24 hours after after his initial meeting with the team.

However, he's coming off a disappointing campaign in which he logged just 16 tackles in 16 games and three starts. The Cowboys had shown some interest in Iloka during post-draft free agency, but he instead signed with Minnesota.
