The Cowboys signed safety Izell Reese to a one-year deal on Friday.

He will make the minimum of $665,000.

Reese has spent the last two years playing for the Buffalo Bills, starting 19 games over the past two seasons.

A seven-year veteran, Reese was originally selected by the Cowboys in the sixth round of the 1998 draft. He signed on with the Denver Broncos in 2002 before heading to Buffalo during the last two seasons.

The Cowboys elected to sign Reese to provide insurance at the free safety position, where he'll eventually compete with Keith Davis, Lynn Scott, and Woody Dantzler for playing time this fall.

Cornerback Pete Hunter may also be used at the free safety position in nickel situations.
