The Cowboys re-signed cornerback Jourdan Lewis in order that they have technically addressed a few of their secondary considerations, however they nonetheless want extra assist. Maybe subsequent week’s go to with Damontae Kazee will go properly.
Whereas they hardly qualify as strikes that may make you bounce out of your seat, the Cowboys have addressed the inside of their defensive entrance and the go rush on the skin as properly. Contained in the Cowboys added Brent City and Carlos Watkins whereas in addition they snagged Tarell Basham as a rusher.

On the time of this writing these are the one exterior additions that the Cowboys have made on the defensive facet of the ball. They maintain the tenth total decide within the NFL Draft and it’s logical to imagine that assistance will come from there as properly, however for sure it appears like extra might nonetheless be executed.
There are nonetheless numerous veteran cornerbacks in the marketplace and maybe the Cowboys are readying themselves to make a run at one. For now, that is the place we’re.
