4. Deion Sanders

The first hall of famer on this list. CowboyNation, especially today, would be excited to see prime time suit up for the current version of America’s Team. 

Deion Sanders played for Dallas from 1995-1999. He signed a seven-year $35 million contract with the franchise. Regarded by many as the greatest corner ever, the addition of Primetime helped the Cowboys capture the franchise’s fifth and most recent Super Bowl title in 1995. 

Sander's athleticism, speed, and versatility made him a matchup nightmare. Per Pro Football Reference, Sanders amassed 53 career interceptions, 5,722 return yards, and 22 total touchdowns. 

His versatility allowed him to be one of the greatest return specialists of all time, and he even contributed on offense as a receiver. The Cowboys can get creative with a player like Prime in all phases.

Insert number 21 on defense to go with all-pros Trevon Diggs and Stephon Gilmore, and the Cowboys would instantly field the best cornerback room in the league ... which they might already have with Diggs and Gilmore.
