When Dallas re-signed Jourdan Lewis, it signaled concern about the status of Stephon Gilmore. The veteran was added in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts and moved into the CB1 role when Trevon Diggs was lost for the season with a torn ACL.

Gilmore, who is now 33 years of age, isn't the same player who was once the 10th overall pick in the NFL Draft. But he played in all 17 games and finished with 68 tackles, 13 pass defenses, two interceptions, and one forced fumble. He was also the one who primarily slowed down the Philadelphia Eagles' aerial attack in their Week 14 win.

Dallas could go into the season with Diggs and Daron Bland — who led the NFL in interceptions in 2023 — and feel perfectly fine. Lewis even proved to be a worthy slot corner still, once he was fully healthy. Having said that, the Cowboys saw how quickly the depth can be depleted — and no one can have too many cornerbacks.

Bringing Gilmore back would solidify their secondary. Given how many holes they have elsewhere, that would be a wise move, so they can use draft assets on more pressing concerns. Gilmore has expressed a desire to return as well, now it's just time to make it happen.
