4 former Cowboys free agents who could be brought back in the 2023 offseason

Another former Dallas Cowboys free agent in 2023 will be Terrance Mitchell, who has already had two stints with America’s Team. A product of Oregon, Mitchell was selected in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft and despite showing promise in the preseason, he didn’t make the 53-man roster.
This led to his departure as he joined the Chicago Bears, where he played for roughly one and a half seasons. He only appeared in five games before being released by Chicago. Mitchell then re-joined Dallas to close out the 2015 campaign and had 12 tackles and an interception in three games.
Again, he hit the open market in the offseason and spent two years with the Kansas City Chiefs followed by three with the Cleveland Browns. In that span, he became a regular contributor with 11 starts for the Chiefs and 27 in Cleveland.
Mitchell still hasn’t been able to stay anywhere long as he was with Houston in 2021 and Tennessee this past season. He’s continued to prove he’s a decent option, especially in man coverage.
He’s not a burner but he has 56 starts in 94 career games with nine interceptions and 63 pass defenses. With Anthony Brown hitting free agency, Mitchell could be a fallback plan and would be much more affordable.
