The Dallas Cowboys, just like every other team around the NFL, will undoubtedly be monitoring roster cuts that are happening as tons of players are released and waived. The Cowboys already have a strong roster, but you never know when you're going to get the chance to upgrade your depth, or maybe add a player you really liked in the pre-draft process and get them in your program.
The Cowboys won't be high on the waiver wire, but that shouldn't prevent them from putting in claims on guys they want. And for some vested veterans getting released, the Cowboys might be a top destination if there is mutual interest.
Let's take a look at a handful of players that might be of interest to Dallas as the team looks to put together the best 53-man roster possible to dethrone the Eagles in the NFC East.
3 roster cuts the Dallas Cowboys could claim off waivers
1. Deion Jones, LB
The Dallas Cowboys could use some depth at the off-ball linebacker position and a familiar face for Dan Quinn has hit the free agent market again. Deion Jones was cut by the Carolina Panthers and has history with Quinn dating back to their time with the Atlanta Falcons.
Jones was playing in Quinn's defense in Atlanta from 2016-2020 before Quinn joined the Cowboys in 2021. Early on in his career, Jones had a ton of success with Quinn, finishing third in Defensive Rookie of the Year voting back in 2016 before making a Pro Bowl in 2017. At the age of 28, Jones is still capable of contributing as depth, as a starter, and he can do a little bit of everything you need at linebacker from rushing the passer to playing in coverage.
