The Dallas Cowboys have signed veteran safety Robert Blanton.

The Cowboys are looking to next week's NFL Draft to further bolster the safety position, with Barry Church and JJ Wilcox having left via free agency. Sources tell 105.3 The Fan this is a one-year deal.

Blanton started two of the 10 games he played for Buffalo and spent the first four years of his career with the Vikings.

Blanton played strong safety in Buffalo previous year and started a couple of games while providing solid help on special teams. The 27-year-old's season was cut short after suffering a foot injury in Week 11. At least four safeties have been part of the Cowboys' 30 pre-draft visitor list.

The Cowboys are looking for players to compete with Jeff Heath who is now the starting safety opposite Byron Jones but will surely have competition from free agents and draft picks. Wilcox, who started 38 games over the last four seasons, joined Tampa Bay on a two-year deal worth $6.25 million.
