NFL Free Agency is still in full swing, and the Dallas Cowboys continue to mold their team for the 2021 season. We are continuing to watch what moves the Cowboys make, especially on the defense. Here are the midweek Cowboys free agency news.

On Wednesday, CB Jourdan Lewis agreed to a three-year deal with the Cowboys. This deal guarantees Lewis $8 million and can be worth $16.5 million, according to reports on Twitter.
Antwaun Woods was quick to congratulate his newly signed teammate on Twitter.
And he wasn’t the only one, Lewis’ former teammate Chidobe Awuzie made sure to congratulate Lewis on social media as well.

Tarell Basham Adds Depth to the LB Corps
Late on Thursday, the Cowboys signed former Jets LB Tarell Basham to a two-year contract reportedly worth up to $6.5 million.
