The Dallas Cowboys agreed to terms with free agent defensive tackle Dontari Poe on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

Some details remain to be worked out between Poe's agent, Jimmy Sexton, and the Cowboys, before the deal is finalized, per the Dallas Morning News.

A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Poe registered four sacks and 22 tackles in 11 games last season with the Carolina Panthers. He had season-ending surgery for a torn quadriceps in November, and the Panthers declined to pick up a $9.8 million team option.

A first-round pick (11th overall) in the 2012 NFL Draft by Kansas City, Poe has 20.5 sacks and 278 tackles in 121 games (118 starts) with the Chiefs (2012-16), Atlanta Falcons (2017) and Panthers (2018-19).

Poe, who turns 30 in August, would be reunited with former Panthers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. McCoy, a six-time Pro Bowl selection with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, signed a three-year deal with Dallas earlier this month.
