6. Acquire a cornerback
Dallas doesn’t only have a need at safety, but also at corner. With cornerbacks Byron Jones and Anthony Brown set to become free agents we see a lack of depth at the position. My gut says to re-sign Jones and let Brown walk, but the high price may sway the decision.
The going rate for Jones if he hits the market would probably be around $13-15 million per year and I do not think the Cowboys are going to go that route after the likely possibility of signing Dak and Cooper.
If Dallas decides to part ways with both corners during free agency you could look towards the draft at potential targets such as the University of Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson, University of Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs or LSU cornerback Kristian Fulton.
If you want to start to dig into rounds two or three you can get value in Ohio State University cornerback Damon Arnette or Clemson University cornerback A.J. Terrell.
This is a basic plan for the Cowboys to become more of a complete team in 2020. This won’t solve all of their problems, but it is a good place to start during the offseason.
Dallas will make a ton of decisions between now and Week One of the 2020 season between free agency, the NFL draft, and possible trades. If these six key points are addressed the Boys will be back competing at a high level shortly.
