The former sixth round pick for the Cowboys, Xavier Woods proved to be a starting caliber safety for much of his tenure in Dallas. But as systems and coaches turned over, it seemed like just a matter of time before Woods would be headed elsewhere.
The Cowboys have been busy at safety this offseason, signing Damontae Kazee, Keanu Neal, and Jayron Kearse within just the last week.
Kazee is the most logical replacement to Xavier Woods, who will now join the Vikings with a chance to compete for their free safety spot after Anthony Harris signed with Philadelphia.
After a historically bad 2020 performance, the Cowboys are making sure the backend of their defense will look much different personnel wise in 2021.
