The Dallas Cowboys Free Agents: Who Goes, Who Stays
By Carl Daley
Defensive Free Agents Continued…
The defensive backfield is where the Cowboys will see a lot of talent leave their roster. It is easily the position most affected by free agency. Cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne along with safeties J.J. Wilcox and Barry Church will all see their contracts with the franchise expire.
Say what you will about his play on the field, Carr is a dependable starter, who has not missed a game in his time with Dallas.
The Cowboys will probably be interested in re-signing him, if they weren’t they would have likely traded him by now. Carr is a great guy in the locker room and on the field so the team would likely be happy with his return that is, if he lowered his salary a bit.
The team should also be interested in re-signing Claiborne however after his struggles on the field and with the ability to stay healthy the team could potentially move on from their former first round pick if he is not in a reasonable price range. Wilcox could also get the short end of the stick as the team looks to re-sign their primary starter.

The main priority for the team will likely be to re-sign veteran safety Barry Church. He remains one of the best tacklers on the Cowboys roster and has been an incredible force in this defense. Church is the priority signing for Dallas this offseason.
