The Dallas Cowboys agreed to a new five-year, $62.5-million deal with wide receiver Michael Gallup, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Gallup was set to become an unrestricted free agent.

Dallas had prioritized re-signing the promising wideout, who tore his ACL on Jan. 2. Gallup also missed seven games this past season due to a calf injury. Despite multiple ailments, the 26-year-old was able to haul in 35 receptions for 445 yards and two touchdowns.

Gallup has proved to be an effective target for quarterback Dak Prescott when healthy. The Georgia native tallied back-to-back seasons with 800-plus receiving yards in 2019 and 2020 to go along with 11 total touchdowns.

Dallas has been busy addressing its pass-catching group this offseason, previously placing the franchise tag on tight end Dalton Schultz. The Cowboys freed up some cap space by reportedly trading Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns.
