Cowboys Should Bolster Safety Position By Signing Marcus Maye

The would certainly do themselves a favor by bolstering their corps. , who's been with the since 2017, could provide a noteworthy boost.

Jayron Kearse, who performed admirably last season, is seen as a priority for the Cowboys considering how well he played. As most fans know, the team has some tough financial decisions ahead, but coming off a playoff appearance, the Cowboys can't afford to be cheap. Re- Kearse and bringing in Maye would be an optimal scenario.

Maye played in only six games last year due to an Achilles' , so his contributions were a fraction of what they were previously. Essentially, the Cowboys could get lucky and snag Maye for relatively cheap. According to Pro Football Focus, they predict a one-year “prove it” deal with roughly $4.5 million guaranteed.

The Cowboys could win big with a low-risk, high-reward deal.

The upside to signing Maye is that and the Cowboys would be banking on his comeback. The fact is, will need to ease their expectations as far as is concerned. As it stands, they have plenty of players whose future has yet to be decided. Taking a chance on a player like Maye will most likely be the highlight of Cowboys free agency.

Maye's injury, diminishing on-field performance, and the fact that he'll soon be 29 mean he shouldn't attract too much attention. By the same token, playing as a fielder in 's should aid Maye's resurgence. As Dallas fans are familiar with, Quinn calls a lot of plays with the playing in the deep half. These single-high concepts would translate into Maye's fitting well.

Depending on how a deal with Kearse might look, creating a tandem with Maye would certainly pay dividends.

The only thing I don’t like about signing Kearse and Maye is that they both are better players in the box! Maye is a good free safety, but he is best in the box!! He showed that when he was moved from free safety to box safety when Jamal Adams was traded!! But who knows, maybe he can be a better free safety under Dan Quinn!!
