Malik Hooker Signs Three-Year Extension

The Dallas Cowboys and safety Malik Hooker agreed to a three-year contract extension on Friday worth up to $24 million that includes an $8 million signing bonus paid in the next 15 days and $16.5 million guaranteed, according to his agent, David Mulugheta. The deal ties Hooker to the Cowboys through the 2026 season. The 27-year-old former first-rounder in 2017 by the Indianapolis Colts out of Ohio State gets the extension after recording a career-high 62 tackles (44 solo) in his second year with Dallas in 2022. He also had a career-high-tying three interceptions and a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown in 16 regular season games (six starts). Hooker will remain a starter for the Cowboys moving forward.

Malik Hooker Recovered From Thumb Surgery

Dallas Cowboys safety Malik Hooker (thumb) took part in the team's mandatory minicamp after having surgery on his thumb when the Cowboys were eliminated from the playoffs last season. Hooker should be good to go for the start of training camp in late July. He's coming off a career-best 62 tackles (44 solo), three interceptions and a fumble recovery returned for a touchdown in 16 regular season games (six starts) in 2022 in his second year in Dallas. When healthy, the 27-year-old should continue to start in the team's secondary this year.

Malik Hooker Re-Signs With Dallas

The Dallas Cowboys re-signed safety Malik Hooker to a two-year, $8 million deal on Tuesday, according to a source. Hooker isn't much of an asset in IDP fantasy leagues, but he played well for the Cowboys down the stretch in 2021 and finished with 44 tackles (30 solo), one interception and two passes defensed in 15 regular season games (three starts) for the Cowboys in his first season with the team after spending the first four years of his career with the Indianapolis Colts. The 25-year-old was coming off a torn Achilles that limited him to two games in 2020, so his 2021 performance was extremely encouraging. The former first-round pick should have a full-time role in 2022.

Malik Hooker Tests Positive For COVID-19

Dallas Cowboys safety Malik Hooker tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, and his status is now in doubt for Sunday night's game against the Washington Football Team. It's terrible timing for Hooker, as he's coming off his best game of the season with six tackles (five solo), an interception and a pass defensed in 51% of the defensive snaps played. The 25-year-old is vaccinated, but he'll need to be asymptomatic and test negative before Sunday night in order to be cleared from the COVID protocols. In 13 games for the Cowboys this year, Hooker has 38 tackles and one interception. Even if Hooker doesn't play, Dallas' D should be considered a must-start against Washington in the fantasy playoffs.

Malik Hooker Officially Signs With The Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys officially came to terms on a contract with defensive back Malik Hooker. Hooker was the 15th pick of the 2017 draft and played the extent of his rookie contract with the Indianapolis Colts. He's been a strong player while on the field, but has suffered a series of injuries, culminating with a torn Achilles' tendon in September. It's a low-risk, high-reward signing for the Cowboys, who certainly need help in their secondary. Hooker could develop IDP value if he can stay healthy.

Malik Hooker Expected To Sign With The Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys are expected to sign defensive back Malik Hooker to complete their 90-man roster. Hooker and the Cowboys met for a second time on Friday and as long as everything checks out with his medicals, he should be joining the team soon. Hooker is coming off an Achilles injury that required surgery. The former first round pick has missed 17 games over the past two seasons, but he's always been a ball hawk while on the field. He's a high-upside signing for a Cowboys defense that needs help in the secondary.

Malik Hooker Nearing A Deal With The Cowboys

Malik Hooker, a former first-round draft choice of the Indianapolis Colts, is close to signing with the Dallas Cowboys pending a physical. It's no secret that Dallas has been looking for secondary help following a disastrous 2020 season on the back end of their defense, and Hooker could be just what the team is looking for if he stays healthy. Per Michael Gehlken, Hooker would make the 90-man roster if and when he signs with the team. Hooker has missed 28 games in his four seasons to this point, but he has been productive when he's been on the field. In 36 career games Hooker has racked up seven interceptions, 11 passes defensed, 124 tackles, and two fumble recoveries. Expect Hooker to line up as a traditional free safety in 2021 alongside strong safety Donovan Wilson.

Malik Hooker Visiting With Dolphins

Former Indianapolis Colts first-round safety Malik Hooker is visiting with the Miami Dolphins on Tuesday, according to a source. Hooker has yet to play a full season in the NFL after being selected 15th overall out of Ohio State in 2017. The 25-year-old played in only two games last year before he tore his Achilles and missed the rest of the season. He's missed 14 games with various injuries in his four seasons in the league, which is why Indianapolis declined to pick up his fifth-year option for the 2021 campaign. Hooker can still be productive on the field, he just needs to stay healthy. He has seven interceptions, 124 tackles (81 solo), 11 passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 36 career games (35 starts).

Cowboys To Visit With Malik Hooker, Damontae Kazee

The Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to visit with free-agent safeties Malik Hooker and Damontae Kazee over the next few days. This comes after the team agreed to sign safety Keanu Neal over the weekend. Neal is on the cusp of a position change, so Hooker or Kazee would profile as potential replacements for Xavier Woods, who remains unsigned. Hooker and Kazee both tore their Achilles' early last year. Kazee would reunite with new Cowboys defensive coordinator Gus Bradley after he was the head coach with the Atlanta Falcons. Hooker was a first-rounder by the Indianapolis Colts, but he has been set back by injuries throughout his career. Kazee had a breakout in 2018 when he recorded an NFL-high seven interceptions.

Colts Defense Loses Malik Hooker For The Season

Indianapolis Colts safety Malik Hooker (Achilles) suffered a torn Achilles in the Week 2 win over the Vikings and will miss the rest of the season, according to a source. The first-round pick in 2017 has been injury prone in his career, which is why the team didn't pick up his fifth-year option. Hooker will finish the season with seven tackles (five solo) in two games. His absence for the rest of the season will surely weaken the Colts secondary, but their defense is still worth a play in Week 3 against a Jets offense that is among the worst in the league through two weeks.
