Safety Gerald Sensabaugh signed a one-day contract on Thursday, allowing him to retire as a Dallas Cowboy. Also on Thursday, the Cowboys released quarterback Aaron Corp, and defensive tackle Brian Price was waived (injured). Sensabaugh was released by the Cowboys in March for salary cap reasons. He decided to retire rather than continue to seek employment as a free agent. Sensabaugh said he has drawn interest from a couple of teams but was no longer interested in playing football, bringing his eight-year career to an end. Sensabaugh was drafted in the fifth round by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2005 out of North Carolina. He stayed there for four years before joining the Cowboys in 2009. He started 84 of 112 games, posting 469 tackles, two sacks, six tackles for loss, 43 pressures, four forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and 14 interceptions in eight years in the league. Sensabaugh had 62 tackles in 15 games with the Cowboys last year, but he had no interceptions and just two in the past two years combined. The Cowboys saved $1.5 million by releasing him in March while hoping to upgrade the position with more playmaking ability. Safety, however, still remains a concern for the team after the draft and after free agency as they have yet to replace Sensabaugh with a proven upgrade, but they do have cheaper options in veteran Will Allen, second-year man Matt Johnson and rookie third-round pick J.J. Wilcox. Corp didn’t last a week in Dallas. The former Southern California and Richmond quarterback signed Tuesday to throw in voluntary practice sessions this week but was waived. Price’s stay with the Cowboys didn’t last much longer. Price was signed after the season in hopes he could regain the form that made him a second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2010. But he was waived with a shoulder problem. Price, who had required pelvic surgery, was out of the league last season after the Chicago Bears traded for him and then cut him.
