    Maurice Canady may have been a forgotten name on the Cowboys roster after his 2020 opt-out due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But, once the Cowboys began training camp a few weeks ago, Canady has been making plays regularly and has looked like one of the best cornerbacks on the team.

    Canady was a sixth-round draft pick of the in 2016 out of Virginia. His first three seasons couldn't have gone any worse as hamstring, knee, and thigh injuries only allowed him to appear in 19 games.

    The would be the best of Canady's career as he played in 13 games and registered 46 tackles, an interception, five pass breakups, and a forced fumble. Although he's been away from competitive action for over a year, Canady has shown good technique and instincts in training camp.

    Canady is currently behind and Reggie Robinson on the roster, but with how he's performing in , that might change in the weeks to come. There's been speculation that the Cowboys may look at a veteran cornerback to boost the position. However, with Canady continuously making plays, the organization may not have to spend resources elsewhere.

    Not only should Goodwin and Robinson be weary of Canady but also Joseph and Wright. The CB2 spot is wide open and the veteran has every intention of his name filling that spot.

    The Cowboys still have three more games to go so a lot could change over that span, but with the way Canady has stepped up in Oxnard, he's headed to the 53-man roster unless something unforeseen happens.

    Canady made some good plays vs Pitts. Liked what I saw, and ‘instincts” and his quickness can’t be learned. Certainly think they need to look hard at this player, and would NOT cut him loose.
