Izell Reese Signs With Denver

Safety Izell Reese signed a one-year contract with the Denver Broncos on Saturday for the $550,000 league minimum for a fifth-year player. Reese was originally a 6th round pick in the 1998 draft.

In a move that was hardly surprising, the Cowboys made absolutely no attempt to re-sign S Izell Reese.

Reese was used as an experimental starting cornerback last season, but was largely unsuccessful in his attempt to move over from free safety. The stint ended after four regular-season games.

In his Dallas career, Reese had seven interceptions and three sacks in 15 career starts and 56 total games.

With this move, 2001 draft pick Tony Dixon will likely move into the starting safety spot opposite of Darren Woodson. Dixon, orginally out of Alabama, showed promise last season and has generally been regarded as one of the up-and-coming players on Cowboys' roster.
