The Dallas Cowboys are currently ramping up their defensive backfield as they get set to start training camp. The talented, but often injured safety Malik Hooker will sign with the team shortly. Kyron Brown, another defensive back, will join him.
After playing college football at Akron, Brown was not drafted in 2019. Brown was drafted by the New York Jets in 2019 as a rookie. He made his NFL debut against Washington in mid-November 2019.
He played primarily on special teams up until Dec. 8, when he made a start against Miami Dolphins. Before he was injured in his quad, he recorded five tackles that game and was placed on the injured reserve. These are his five career tackles. He was then placed on the reserve/PUP roster last offseason and will miss the 2020 season.
Brown will be looking to join his second NFL team by signing with the Dallas Cowboys before training camp. Brown will be joining the team on a 2-year contract.
Cowboys are signing CB Kyron Brown to a two-year deal, per his agent @SamLeaf.

The signing places the Dallas Cowboys at 90 players. If Hooker is signed, someone will need to be removed.
Although he was a first-round pick, he has struggled to keep his foot on the field after sustaining a torn Achilles in last year’s season. The team declined to pick up his fifth-year option, and he’s been visiting teams this offseason, taking trips to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins before reportedly locking in on the Cowboys, with whom he made a second visit this weekend.
