The Dallas Cowboys' timid approach to free agency has certainly cost them this offseason. There have been a number of key departures and few signings to fill those holes, raising plenty of questions about Jerry Jones' vision for this upcoming season.

On Sunday, it was revealed another Dallas player would be leaving in free agency.

Jon Keim of ESPN reported the Washington Commanders have signed cornerback Noah Igbinoghene to boost their depth and special teams unit.

Igbinoghene spent the 2023 campaign with the Cowboys after coming over from the Miami Dolphins in the Kelvin Joseph trade. Neither player ended up doing much for either team. Joseph was cut midway through the season, while Igbinoghene appeared in five contests for Dallas over the entire year.

The latter did have one memorable moment while in Big D, as his Week 1 touchdown return helped jump-start a season-opening victory.

Igbinoghene represents the fourth Cowboys free agent to leave the team specifically to join ex-Dallas defensive coordinator Dan Quinn in Washington. Quinn previously agreed to deals with fellow defenders Dorance Armstrong and Dante Fowler Jr., as well as center Tyler Biadasz.

Unfortunately, it doesn't appear Dallas will spend big to replace any of these contributors in free agency. Mike McCarthy's squad ranks dead-last in available cap space at the moment, showing how hamstrung the 'Boys are this offseason.

That likely means more radio silence regarding notable veteran additions on the Cowboys' end. Instead, it appears as if the team will emphasize nabbing low-cost talent in the draft to fill their most pressing needs.
