Xavier Woods is another young defensive player that the Dallas Cowboys need to hold on to. In his four years with the Cowboys he has been a big contributor. Woods has only missed three starts in four years. Lets take a look at the stats Xavier Woods has racked up over the last four years.

Xavier Woods’ Career Stats with the Dallas Cowboys:

  • Total Tackles: 247
  • Forced Fumbles: 3
  • Fumble Recoveries: 2
  • Pass Deflections: 18
  • Interceptions: 5

Xavier Woods had his best year with the Dallas Cowboys in 2019. During the 2019 NFL Season, Xavier Woods recorded 77 total tackles, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 5 pass deflections, and 2 interceptions. Woods started 15 games for the Dallas Cowboys during that 2019 NFL season.

As the free safety, Xavier Woods serves as the last line of defense for the Dallas Cowboys defense. With the Cowboys looking to improve their defense. Bringing back Xavier Woods would give them one less thing to worry about.

Dallas could give Xavier Woods close to the same deal that they give Chidobe Awuzie. A four-year deal for $32-$34 million would most likely get the job done for the Cowboys. This deal wouldn’t take up too much cap space and lock him into a single high coverage system he knows quite well.
