    REPORT: Cowboys Eyeing S Damontae Kazee in Free Agency

    There are several in 2021 that have been linked to the thanks to new . Now there's a that the team is interested in one of Quinn's former Falcons players; fifth-year Safety Damontae Kazee.

    Kazee was a 5th-round pick of Atlanta's in 2017, drafted 42 slots before Dallas selected that same year. Now after three years as a starter for the Falcons, could Damontae follow Quinn to Dallas and replace his former draft classmate as a starting safety?

    After serving as a backup during his rookie season, Kazee was forced into duty in 2018 when was injured in . Starting the next 15 games, Damontae registered seven interceptions to tie the NFL leaders that year. He added three more interceptions in 14 starts in 2019.

    Unfortunately, his was cut short after four games with an Achilles injury. But Kazee is reportedly good to go for next year and will be turning 28 in June.

    Kazee is listed on the smaller side at just 5'11” and 174 lbs. But if he can bring that ballhawking ability to Dallas' then it would be a welcome addition after many years of struggling to create turnovers.

    The Cowboys don't seem too interested in re- Xavier Woods after his rough 2020 performance. He, like Cornerbacks and , are all in precarious positions as this year with suspect resumes.

    One safety spot appears set for 2021 after 's emergence last season. We'll see if this reported interest from the Cowboys towards Damontae Kazee leads to a new starting tandem.

    Ball hawk who can cover WR and TE. Isn’t great at lining guys up and can randomly air ball a tackle…. with that LB core in Dallas though you shouldn’t have to worry about that. Great division and team fit imo

    It doesn’t matter 8-8 on the way

    So long as it means they don’t pass on a quality safety, if the opportunity arises in the draft.
