Report: Cowboys re-sign kicker Lirim Hajrullahu


DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed kicker Lirim Hajrullahu, Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network reports.

He'll compete with former Texas Tech kicker Jonathan Garibay in training camp. Dallas signed Garibay as an undrafted free agent after he wasn't selected in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Hajrullahu appeared in one game with the Cowboys in 2021 when former kicker Greg Zuerlein was in the COVID protocol, going 5-5 on extra points in the team's 43-3 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

Hajrullahu spent part of training camp with the Cowboys and kicked in their preseason game against the Texans before being cut on Aug. 25 to make room on the roster for Zuerlein, who was activated prior to the season opener against Tampa Bay.

The Kosovo native went on to kick in the final three games of the season for the Carolina Panthers, connecting on 4-5 field goal attempts and knocking down all eight of his extra point attempts.
