With NFL Free Agency rapidly approaching, the Dallas Cowboys are preparing for one of the busier times of the offseason. The Cowboys checked their biggest box of the offseason off by signing Dak Prescott to an extension. Next, they followed up with a number of moves to improve their salary cap situation.
Now, the Cowboys must address their biggest weakness — defense. In particular, the secondary for Dallas is among the focal points of the offseason. With this in mind, here are five free agent cornerbacks for the Cowboys to target during free agency.
Cowboys Cornerback Free Agent Targets
Justin Coleman has four career interceptions, with three of which coming during his time in Seattle. That time may have been after Quinn’s tenure, but he was still in the same coverage scheme. Coleman has made his living primarily in the slot, and that is a role that is up for grabs in Dallas. Sure, Jourdan Lewis or Chidobe Awuzie could be re-signed to fill the role. Still, Coleman is another veteran option that could be looking for a better situation after two years of struggling to win in Detroit.
Poole is another slot player with ties to Dan Quinn. Poole’s first three years in the league were in Atlanta with the Cowboys’ new defensive coordinator. There, he had his best season in 2018, which made him a hot commodity that the Jets scooped up for two years. Overall, he’s totaled seven interceptions and 31 passes defended in his five years and would be a valuable addition to the secondary for the right price.
