The Cowboys and Poe agreed to terms of a contract Friday, David Helman of the team's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
An eight-year pro, Poe has experience in both 3-4 (Kansas City and Carolina) and 4-3 (Atlanta) alignments, the latter of which he'll be a part of in Dallas. Over the course of his career, he's tallied two-plus sacks in four campaigns while averaging 49.3 defensive snaps per game. The 6-foot-3, 346-pound nose tackle will serve a space-eating role once he recovers from surgery on a quad injury that ended his 2019 season after 11 contests.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2015
2014
2013
2012
Poe signed a three-year deal with the Panthers in March and should be an anchor in their four-man front after playing all 16 games in each of the last two seasons. The veteran defensive tackle is likely to give about 25-40 tackles and a couple sacks for Carolina.
Poe signed a one-year deal with the Falcons this offseason, and the team hopes he can anchor the defensive front. Atlanta was tied for a conference-worst 4.5 yards allowed per rush last season, but Poe has the ability to change all that. He should be able to provide 20-40 tackles and a couple of sacks if he stays healthy.
Poe finished 2014 with 45 tackles (37 solo) and six sacks for the Chiefs. The former first-round pick remains the anchor in the middle of the Chiefs defensive line, and will serve in that role again in 2015.
The 2012 first-rounder pick is considered to be the anchor of the Chiefs' defensive line. Poe recorded 51 tackles and 4.5 sacks while eating up blockers in 2013. He should continue to put up solid numbers in his third professional season, but his IDP ceiling will be limited while working as the nose tackle in the Chiefs' 3-4 scheme.
Poe, the Chiefs' first-round selection in 2012, will start at nose tackle in the team's base 3-4 defense. He came on strong late in his rookie season and with tremendous size and athleticism Poe is the best bet to become a disruptive force along the Kansas City defensive line.
Poe, the Chiefs' first-round pick, will compete for the starting nose tackle position with Anthony Toribio and Jerrell Powe. While he is raw from a technique standpoint, he has all the physical tools to earn the playing time and make an impact. Nevertheless, 3-4 nose tackles typically do not produce enough tackles or sacks to be an effective IDP.
