Cowboys 2015 Free Agents: Sterling Moore Agrees To Terms With Tampa Bay

More news on the free agency front...

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys have a need at cornerback, but last year's number three corner, Sterling Moore, isn't the answer. The Cowboys let the restricted free agent go, they never offered a tender leaving Moore free to pursue offers. He got one that he liked from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Cowboys have a fluid situation at cornerback with Brandon Carr's contract, and Morris Claiborne's injury and spotty play. Only Orlando Scandrick is a sure thing for 2015, so the idea of bringing Moore back was something that was predicted before they decided not to tender him. Moore played okay as the third corner in 2015 and his contract tender would have been only around $1.5 million. But the Cowboys saw things differently and today he's found a new home.

In other news, George Selvie is meeting with the New York Giants. After a surprisingly good 2013, Selvie fell off a bit in 2014.

With Greg Hardy, Jeremy Mincey and DeMarcus Lawrence already in the fold, and the possibility of Anthony Spencer coming back and a likely draft pick, Selvie is not likely to see much action from the Cowboys.
