Dante Fowler has once again reunited with Dan Quinn; this time, the pair will work together in Dallas. According to Todd Archer, the Cowboys and Fowler agreed to a one-year deal.

The veteran pass rusher officially signed his one-year deal with the Cowboys on Monday, marking the third time he’s reunited with Quinn. 

The first came during the pair’s time in Gainesville at the University of Florida, where Quinn was the defensive coordinator and recruited Fowler, coaching him for one season. The next came during free agency, where Fowler was one of the most sought-after players on the market. Quinn got his guy in Atlanta, as Fowler signed a lucrative contract with the Falcons following an 11.5-sack season with the Rams in 2018. Now, Quinn will be his defensive coordinator once again in Dallas.

The Cowboys would’ve instead had Randy Gregory back, but he went to Denver in a last-minute change of heart. Now, Fowler will try to regain his form that never came to fruition in Atlanta. Last season, Fowler missed three games and only tallied 4.5 sacks, which was an improvement from his 3.0 sacks in 2020.
