The Dallas Cowboys could benefit from bringing back a former Super Bowl champion cornerback.
According to Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox, one free agent the Cowboys "must pursue" is former New Orleans Saints cornerback Bradley Roby.
Following season-ending injuries to important players such as Jourdan Lewis and Anthony Brown last season, Knox believes Dallas should prioritize depth at the cornerback position.
Although the Cowboys presently have four cornerbacks with meaningful experience on the roster, Knox believes Dallas should explore signing a fifth for depth purposes.
"After activating Jourdan Lewis from the PUP list," Knox writes, "the Cowboys are fairly set at cornerback.
"Stephon Gilmore and Trevon Diggs should be an excellent perimeter duo, and DaRon Bland adds depth both inside and out." After losing both Lewis and Anthony Brown to injuries last season,
Dallas should understand the value of depth. The Cowboys should be willing to chase a solid starter like Bradley Roby when he becomes available." According to Knox,
Roby was a "surprise cut" by the Saints. Despite suffering an ankle injury during the 2022 season, Roby started 10 of his 13 games for the Saints. The veteran cornerback had 36 tackles and played 73% of the defensive snaps.
Knox contends that, as he enters his tenth season in the NFL, the 31-year-old still a solid versatile cornerback capable of protecting receivers in the slot and on the outside.
