Leon Hall, Cornerback/Safety
This would not be the first time the Dallas Cowboys kicked the tires of defensive back Leon Hall. The long time Cincinnati Bengals defender visited the Cowboys last March as a possible free agent signee. But Dallas’ passed and Hall eventually signed with the New York Giants.

Last season, Hall recorded 31 tackles, 2.0 sacks, 2 pass defends and one interception in spot duty for the G-Men at both slot corner and safety. Cowboys fans will remember the 32-year old defensive back as he recorded his lone pick of the season against Dallas in Week 14.
The fact Hall played for New York last season, a team that beat the Cowboys twice in 2016, and that he can add positional flex to the secondary should be very attractive to Dallas.
Because free agent signee and veteran cornerback Nolan Carroll was arrested for DUI in May, his availability could be questioned. Combine that fact with Dallas potentially starting as many as two rookies in their secondary plus the earlier trade rumors swirling around veteran corner Orlando Scandrick, and the Cowboys may be looking to add some veteran insurance to that part of their defense.
