Chris Crocker

The eleven-year veteran safety has played the last six season in Cincinnati, which Crocker credits for revitalizing his career. The 34-year old is once again considering retirement after being released last offseason and then re-signed by the Bengals prior to Week Four of their regular season.  Crocker recorded 36 tackles, seven passed defended, two interceptions and 1.5 sacks in spot duty in 2013.

Cowboys Angle: Crocker served as a team captain of the defense for many years as a Bengal. So you know you are getting a great locker room guy by signing him. But Crocker simply feels like another aging veteran who would opt to retire rather than play for anyone else other than Cincinnati. Dallas would probably opt to develop someone younger and less experienced over a safety who is already halfway out the door.
