It’s going to be an exciting time for roster movement in the NFL as NFL Training Camp approaches in just a few weeks.
ESPN highlighted potential veteran roster cuts. This suggests that the Dallas Cowboys might part ways with a free agent pick.
Jayron Kearse (27), signed a free agent contract with the Cowboys in this offseason. He spent his first four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, and the 2020 season with both the Lions and Ravens.
According ESPN Kearse could be a Dallas roster cut.
“The Cowboys do not have a lot of veterans in danger for the traditional reasons, like money, age or draft resources at that spot. So it comes down to Kearse or Darian Thompson, though both could make the final roster. Thompson started seven games last year and is a core special teamer. Kearse, who is guaranteed just $137,500 on the one-year deal he signed, can do the same. It could come down to the development of sixth-round pick Israel Mukuamu. If he shows he can make the transition from college corner to safety, then Kearse and Thompson will be in a battle. Thompson’s time with the current staff gives him the slightest edge.”
Although the Cowboys defense was a significant liability in 2020, they have made many changes this offseason.
Although signing Kearse was one change, it is possible that he will not be part of any improvements in 2021.
