S Kavon Frazier Remains Unsigned; Should Cowboys Bring Him Back?

While we've seen the Cowboys lose some of their marquee like and to other teams, some other quality players are still on the market. One of them is , who's supplied solid depth and standout play for Dallas the last four seasons. Should the Cowboys re-sign Frazier at what would likely be a big discount?

Frazier, who is built to play , has spent his four years in Dallas stuck behind other players. From 2016-2017 it was a mix of , , and . Even when Jones converted back to CB in 2018, Kavon got leapfrogged by for a chance at starting.

Last year Frazier only appeared in four games before a pectoral put him on . But even before then, he'd lost ground on the to and rookie .

So no, Kavon Frazier doesn't appear to be a contender for any starting role in Dallas. But given he's still a and could likely be re-signed to a minimal deal, should the Cowboys consider him for depth and insurance during and the ?

The numbers are still about the same as last season. Jeff Heath has been replaced by but Woods, Thompson, and Wilson are all back. Frazier would be battling to make the .

That fight would get even harder if the another safety in 2020. It is widely expected that Dallas will come away with a rookie safety somewhere in the first three rounds.

But again, this is about depth and insurance. Even if Kavon is the sixth man on the list now it only takes one injury, , or other issue for him to be pushing for a roster spot. Two such problems and suddenly he's on the roster as a solid backup and special teams player.

Frazier is in the same waiting stats as , , , and other free agents from last year's roster. These guy may not find a home until after the 2020 Draft when teams are looking to fill holes that they weren't able to through the rookie class.

The Cowboys may have all the safety help they need once the draft is over, and especially after adding any undrafted rookies. But if there's still a spot to fill a few weeks from now, and he's still available, they could do a lot worse than bringing back Kavon Frazier.

I guess it’s all going to depend on what they get in the draft. I like Thompson over Frazier, and they play him more, so thats a sign. Have not really seen that much of Wilson to make an opinion. Safety class is pretty good this year, so we’ll see in two weeks.


I would love for Dallas to bring Frazier back. After watching the horror show that was the special teams units last year, resigning an excellent special teams player, a solid back up safety and great locker room guy, I don’t know what they’re waiting for.
