Dallas Cowboys Secondary

The Dallas Cowboys will begin the 2023 season with Trevon Diggs, DaRon Bland and Stephon Gilmore as their starting cornerbacks, however, the lack of depth behind them is far from impressive.

Since they were drafted in Rounds 2 and 3, Kelvin Joseph and Nahshon Wright have both not been able to produce the desired results in the two years that have followed.

As Diggs is in the final year of his contract and the potential of a substantial contract looming.

Stephon Gilmore has now surpassed the age of thirty and as time passes, it is unclear how many years of consistent football excellence he will maintain.

In order to improve the team’s overall depth, Dallas should look to bring in some younger players on the defensive secondary. There is an abundance of talented defensive backs in the draft.

The safety unit is talented and deep led by the 3-headed hydra of Jayron Kearse, Malik Hooker and Donovan Wilson.

Hooker and Kearse are both in the final year of their contracts. There is proven depth behind them in the likes of Israel Mukuamu, Markquese Bell, and Tyler Cole.

You should always explore your options with adding outstanding talent to the roster. All year round, the roster is being constantly changed, with the biggest increases in alterations occurring the day following when the roster size is reduced to 53.
