In Need of Restocked Secondary, Cowboys Visit With S Robert Blanton

The 2017 will begin in 37 days (!!!) from Philadelphia, and if we know anything about the draft strategy it is that they like to have as many roster holes as possible filled before going on the clock – in order to comfortably select the best player available regardless of position. This was the logic behind the Nolan Carroll signing at CB, but the at is looking even more bleak. Assessing all options, the Cowboys had veteran in for a visit on Monday.

fortunately has a hold on the just about any position needed FS spot in Dallas' , leaving intriguing but unproven names like and at with in Jacksonville and in Tampa Bay.

Robert Blanton was drafted in the 5th round by the Vikings in 2012, having a career year under in 2014 with a team-high 106 tackles, a forced fumble, and an interception.

At 27 years old, the Cowboys know what Blanton is at this point in his career, after spending 2016 with the Bills but being placed on IR following a foot in week 11. The depth and stability he can provide as a strong safety to fit Dallas' need for a sure tackler and “enforcer” at the position will be comforting to not only but in approaching this draft.

Inside The Star will keep you updated should Robert Blanton become the newest member of America's Team.
