Jourdan Lewis Re-signs, Cowboys set at CB Heading Into the 2021 NFL Draft?

In a surprising move that absolutely no one saw coming the re-signed to a three-year yesterday.

While nearly all of us were anxiously waiting to see which CB the Dallas Cowboys would target in it seems like they were working on bringing back their own. With No. 26 back in the mix it's unlikely we see any other additions to the position until the upcoming 2021 .
