The first week of free agency is in the books and the Dallas Cowboys were definitely busy.
Obviously the Cowboys didn’t make as many moves as other organizations like say the Baltimore Ravens, the general sense is always that we’d love to see them be a little bit more active this time of year.
That is not the case though and, partly in their defense, but for what it’s worth they had a lot of their own players to work out contracts with in order to keep. Dallas ultimately tagged Dak Prescott, locked down Amari Cooper, and extended Blake Jarwin on top of plenty of other re-signings.
The week did not see the Cowboys pass on every outside free agent though as they brought in three new faces. Incidentally they addressed what some would say are the three position groups in most need of help: Gerald McCoy (DT), Maurice Canady (CB), and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (S).
McCoy and Clinton-Dix are names that many Cowboys fans immediately felt excitement about, but Maurice Canady was a bit more unknown. For perspective’s sake we know that Mike McCarthy spent a great time on the latest football buzz word - analytics! - and Canady graded out as PFF’s 20th-best cornerback on defense in 2019.
There is no question that Gerald McCoy will be a starter for the 2020 Cowboys, and it makes a lot of sense that Clinton-Dix would be, too. Obviously what Dallas does during the draft, specifically in the first round, is going to significantly shape the safety and/or cornerback spots.
While the Cowboys didn’t set off fireworks or anything they took the free agency route that we’ve grown accustomed to from an overall perspective. Looking at the external players that they brought in, which one are you the most excited about?
