PRO: Danny McCray signed with Dallas as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2010 NFL Draft and impressed coaches throughout training camp and the preseason with his special teams play and a knack to be around the ball and make plays. McCray was one-of-four rookie free agents to make the team out of camp joining safety Barry Church, fullback Chris Gronkowski and center Phil Costa. He finished his rookie season with 28 special teams tackles, the third-most in a season in team history since the club started recording special teams tackles in 1988. McCray built on his rookie campaign in 2011 and continued to be a force on special teams, leading the unit with 19 tackles. He also saw some time as a reserve on defense and posted five tackles, a sack, a tackle for a loss and a quarterback pressure.
