Running back Lance Dunbar reportedly has re-signed with the Dallas Cowboys.

Adam Caplan of ESPN reported the contract is a one-year deal worth $1.75 million, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Dunbar is coming off a season-ending knee injury, but that didn't deter the Cowboys from bringing him back into the fold, and they weren't the only team Dunbar drew interest from.

On March 13, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reported Dunbar visited the Seattle Seahawks. 

A source told Caplan on March 9 that Dunbar would meet with the San Francisco 49ers. 

In just four games last year, Dunbar hauled in 21 catches for 215 yards—well above the 67 yards on five attempts he contributed on the ground.

Over four seasons with Dallas, he compiled 1,400 all-purpose yards, including kickoff and punt returns, with zero touchdowns.
