The Dallas Cowboys' 2024 free agency has been headlined by departures, instead of new arrivals. It's clear owner Jerry Jones isn't eager to break open his wallet for this team amid so much uncertainty, which has led to Dallas mostly sitting on the sidelines to this point.

However, the Cowboys still have Super Bowl expectations on them with a franchise quarterback under center and a talented defense. With that in mind, here are some free agents still on the market who could help that cause without breaking the bank.

1. Stephon Gilmore

Veteran cornerback Stephon Gilmore is one of the best FAs left on the board, ring or not.

The five-time Pro Bowler enjoyed a nice season in Dallas in 2023 despite turning 33 years old. He started all 17 games for the 'Boys while recording two interceptions and an impressive 13 passes defended.

It's quite a surprise Gilly Lock remains on the market. While his age is a factor surely bringing down his interest, he's still clearly an impactful player as his career continues into its latter stages.

Considering how well he played for the Cowboys, Jones and co. should absolutely explore a return. This secondary is anticipating the return of star Trevon Diggs after he missed most of the 2023 campaign, but there's also no telling right now when he'll be ready to go full speed again.

Plus, Dallas could be motivated to take the cautious approach with Diggs' return in order to protect its near-$100 million investment on the CB being part of the team's long-term future.

Re-signing Gilmore would immediately alleviate any pressure for Diggs to rush back. It'd also provide a steady presence for this defense and let DaRon Bland move to the slot when Diggs is ready, giving Mike Zimmer's unit legit playmakers all over the secondary.
