The 2020 Dallas Cowboys secondary has undergone yet another reconstruction. Gone is Pro Bowl cornerback Byron Jones along with safeties Jeff Heath and Kavon Frazier. In their place are veterans Clinton-Dix and Worley.

Clinton-Dix represents an upgrade at safety but Jones will be much tougher to replace. Dallas is hoping that Diggs, a second-round selection in this year’s draft, can do the job. He’ll get the first opportunity to do so with extended playing time for Lewis who played well despite being in the previous regime’s doghouse last year.

The Dallas Cowboys are also hoping that Awuzie regains his confidence and upgrades his play from a dismal 2019. His performance this season is a huge key to the success of this defense.

Of course, there is also the constantly swirling rumors of possibly trading for Jets All-Pro safety Jamal Adams which seems largely pie-in-the-sky at this point. Without that acquisition, the third-place spot within the division seems more than fair.
