    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 Cornerback Jourdan Lewis 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 .

    Current Dallas Cowboys CB Depth

    Okay. So this group doesn't look that great on paper, but it does give the Dallas Cowboys options prior to the NFL Draft. Trevon Diggs is coming off a pretty good rookie season and should be even better in Year 2 and both Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis have inside/out versatility. Believe it or not, but that pretty much covers the basics.

    I get it though. Many of us were wanting to see the Dallas Cowboys go out and sign a free agent CB like Patrick Peterson or . While both of those players have a more proven track record that doesn't necessarily mean they're worth the money. The same can be said for a lot of the still available on the open market as well.

    With Jordan Lewis back in the mix the Dallas Cowboys can now focus on addressing other positions in free agency and then have their pick of CBs in the class. It's not completely impossible the Cowboys could have their pick of corners with the 10th overall pick. Suddenly, things start looking a lot better.

    For arguments sake let's say the or II with the 10th overall pick. You then slide one of the two in opposite Trevon Diggs and have either Anthony Brown or Jourdan Lewis playing in the nickel. I don't know about you, but I'd say that upgrades Dallas' from what they deployed just a year ago.

    Re- Jordan Lewis doesn't necessarily mean the Dallas Cowboys are done addressing the CB position in free agency. If they think they can still upgrade the position in a cost-effective way they could easily Anthony Brown and/or Maurice Canady for more relief. But, as things stand right now they look to be set at the position heading into the 2021 NFL Draft.

    I actually think it was a solid re-signing. Especially when you compare it to what Awuzie signed for in Cincy, Lewis has shown to have better ball skills than Awuzie and I like his versatility, outside CB/slot CB/good special teams player. I would still think that they go CB at #10 but won’t be mad or surprised if they went K.Pitts or M.Parsons.

    wmgates68

    Agreed

    Tyler

    Rashard Robinson?

    Don Howard

    Part of the article said this doesn’t look very good on paper but what is disturbing is that they don’t look very good on the feild

    Gary b

    DON HOWARD- Now thats funny !

    I still think they need another stud outside corner. But the Lewis signing might open up more options. They may opt to go CB in the 2nd round as this is a pretty deep CB draft class. I also like LB Parsons ALOT.

    ThrowuptheX88

    Agreed Gary b , love Parsons at LB , he’s a ATHLETIC FREAK

    6’3″ , 245 lbs.

    4.44 40 time reportedly

    I think you should see if you could get Pat P , i think he can still play , might even plug him in at FS with his ball skills

    get Parsons at 10 , and then get a CB in 2nd or 3rd round like Eric Stokes or Melifonwu

    overall , we’d have a solid secondary that DQ can work with
