The Dallas Cowboys could see a steady stream of free agents leave the team this offseason. These are the top remaining former Cowboys on the market.
As with every offseason, the Dallas Cowboys had to make tough choices with its free agent pool in 2023. Who stays, and who goes?
The Cowboys made the hardest decisions already at the start of free agency, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be keeping an eye on where their ex-players end up this season.
Some spent their entire careers in Dallas and will be looking for a fresh start; others only played a handful of meaningful snaps and may believe their talents are better suited for a different scheme.
Regardless, the ex-Cowboys on this list are somehow still available. Other NFL teams would be wise to snatch them up now before the end of the offseason.
Here are the top former Cowboys players on the market.
Former Cowboys who remain free agents
4. Anthony Brown
Cornerback Anthony Brown spent his entire seven-year career in Dallas, and he turned into a trusted piece in the backfield toward the end of his tenure, starting 16 games and racking up three interceptions in 2021.
However, at age 29, Brown was considered an expendable piece after the 2022 season as younger, sprier Cowboys appear primed to step into his role in 2023.
That doesn’t take away from Brown’s own talents, though. He was the Cowboys’ most experienced corner last year, and the team felt the painful blows of his absence when Brown went down due to a torn Achilles in Week 13.
Dallas can’t justify paying him as much as they did in 2022 (roughly $5 million annual salary), yet Brown could feasibly join any team in need of defensive reinforcements on a cheaper, cap-friendly deal.
Given his age and injury history, he should be available at a marked discount and would immediately add proven leadership and expertise to any roster in the league.
