Cowboys lose safety to Saints

IRVING – Safety Keith Davis, a restricted free agent who started 16 games last year, has agreed to a two-year contract with New Orleans.
The deal, which includes a $1.2 million signing bonus, would allow Davis to earn $2.1 million in 2006. Davis is expected to submit the deal to the league office on Tuesday, which means the Cowboys would then have seven days to match the contract.
His best performance came on special teams, especially kickoff and punt coverage where he was one of the Cowboys' leading tacklers.

At least he is a strong safety. Boy the secondary is getting interesting. draft a CB in the second and it will be fun.

It's looking more and more like D Smith is moving to CB. I think this is a good move, good pick up. I'm beginning to doubt we draft a DB on the first day if things stay as they are.

Keith Davis | S Complete player profile
Full Name: Keith Davis
Born: December 30, 1978
Dallas, TX
Height: 5-10
Weight: 198 lbs. Age: 27
Pos: S
Experience: 3 years
College: Sam Houston State
Insider Analysis
Grade 62
Expert's Take Davis has adequate size for the position and he is not going to be mis matched versus many receivers. He has good foot quickness and he is quicker than he is fast. He has good speed however he lacks ideal top end speed. He has good upper body strength and he is very aggressive in attacking blockers and he uses his hands well in block protection. He is fluid in his movement and he has good change of direction skills. He does a good job of reading the quarterback and he gets a good break on the ball when it is thrown. He can match up very well with most backs and tight ends in man coverage in a short area however he lacks the running ability to play man coverage all over the field. He is inconsistent with his footwork and he takes some false steps. He is somewhat vulnerable to play action fakes. He is a sure tackler and he shows that he can make a play in space however he is not the guy you want to bring down into the box on a regular basis in run support. He takes good angles to the ball in pursuit but he does not play with a high level of intensity. He will not make many big plays but he will not make many big mistakes. He plays a very cautious free safety. He plays a very productive role on special teams but durability has been a problem. His ability to stay healthy over the course of a season has become an issue.

Dwight and mike with Davis or Scott and Bullocks. I think Bellamy may be the player on the Bubble.

Depends on who's going to call the plays.
As it stands now, I guess it will be MM and DS on the corners and Bellamy and Bullocks at safety. If someone else starts calling plays then I guess Bullocks and Davis will start.
