    What’s Next For Cowboys CB Anthony Brown?

    While most of the Cowboys is in flux, veteran is one of the few with a clear future in Dallas.

    Well, sort of clear.

    Brown signed a three year, $15.5 million extension last , before having an up-and-down 2020 campaign that included multiple interceptions but also six games missed to . Brown has shown he can be a capable starter and solid role player for the Cowboys, so where should he fit in the 2021 plans?

    Doing exactly that, of course!

    Anthony Brown is a former day three draft pick that has started 43 games since 2016. He's played in multiple roles, moving between the outside and the slot corner positions under different regimes, and has made a handful of huge impact plays every season. He's not an ideal CB1 or CB2, but he is the perfect depth chess piece for an NFL secondary.

    So the question for Anthony Brown really isn't about him, it will be about what's around him.

    Can the Cowboys improve enough at those top two cornerback spots to allow Brown to shine in his own role? Or will he be forced to live up to an unfair billing?

    As of right now the Cowboys really only have and Anthony Brown as realistic week one starters on the roster. Both and are entering unrestricted , and it's tough to gauge what the Cowboys plan to do with any of their dollars.

    What they do have, though, is a top ten draft pick and a chance to potentially snag one of the top cornerbacks. Like a or , either of which would fit in perfectly and fill a dire need for the Cowboys .

    If they use that top ten pick elsewhere, though, Anthony Brown could be forced into the starting boundary corner job alongside Diggs in 2021.

    So as we head towards both free agency and the , all we know about Anthony Brown's 2021 role in Dallas is…that there will be one.

    If he don’t play any better than he did last year I guess the next thing for him is picking up some yards this summer or using his college degree( if he has one) to get a job! The last few games I watched him play the Cowboys could have played the lowest man on the roster and he couldn’t have been any worst!

    Anthony is a very solid nickel corner. However, he has no business whatsoever playing on the outside. Our big concern has to be getting another starter on the outside in the draft (Caleb Farley is my dream pick!), add a veteran corner who can spell or step in at both outside spots (one who won’t block the progress of our draft pick), and never have to consider playing Anthony on the outside ever again!
