DALLAS, March 26 (UPI) -- Outside linebacker Justin Durant, who was Detroit's second-leading tackler last season, said Tuesday he's heading to Dallas.

The Dallas Morning News reported the Cowboys made Durant their first free-agent signing of the year, reaching an agreement with him on a two-year deal.

The newspaper said the team has salary cap considerations that will mean Durant will have to wait to sign a contract.

Still, he posted a message on Twitter saying he would be having to "learn that South Dallas Swag."

The Detroit Free Press noted that while Durant had a career-high 103 tackles last year and played all 16 games for the first time in his career, the Lions instead go with DeAndre Levy, whom they re-signed, along with Ashlee Palmer and Tahir Whitehead.
