It’s “pretty confirmed” that Chidobe Awuzie will play cornerback

It’s “pretty confirmed” that Chidobe Awuzie will play cornerback

He could play safety, but that doesn’t look like the direction Chidobe Awuzie is headed. There are two words that will make just about any Cowboys fan squirm these days: position flex. It seems like the Cowboys have had a bit of difficulty when they’ve gotten their hands on players that can perform multiple functions. Position flexibility certainly sounds good on the surface, but we’ve seen it be a bit detrimental when it comes to the growth of players on America’s Team. Whether it’s Tyrone Crawford, Byron Jones, or even Chaz Green last season... it’s taken the Cowboys a bit of...

The move to cornerback is only going to help Byron Jones

The move to cornerback is only going to help Byron Jones

Former safety Byron Jones is hoping for a revival at corner. The Cowboys picked up a brand new cornerback this offseason by way of recycling. Who doesn’t love going green? Dallas officially flipped Byron Jones back to corner from safety, and while he sort of leaves a hole behind, the state of the cornerback group (especially under Kris Richard) feels better than ever. Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis got off to promising starts to their careers in 2017. Pairing the athleticism of Byron with that duo (plus what will likely be a motivated Anthony Brown) has rightful optimism circling us...

The move provides some veteran depth as they move Jimmie Ward back to cornerback. The San Francisco 49ers waived defensive back Trovon Reed on Monday, and have quickly replaced him in the secondary.

Kris Richard seems excited about Xavier Woods at free safety

Kris Richard seems excited about Xavier Woods at free safety

Is X-Man the answer for the Cowboys at safety? The Cowboys weren’t the biggest players in free agency this offseason, but that doesn’t mean that they were without acquisitions. Dallas signed their handful of guys, they drafted players that can certainly help right away, and they made a few in-house changes like moving Byron Jones to cornerback. Perhaps the biggest move they’ve made is the one that’s partly responsible for the move of Jones, bringing in Kris Richard to work with their secondary as the defense’s passing game coordinator. Richard joined Mickey Spagnola on...

What Cowboys OTAs could tell us about the secondary

DallasCowboys.com writer Bryan Broaddus recently joined the "GBag Nation" on 105.3 FM The Fan to talk all things Cowboys and OTAs. Here are some highlights:What can you monitor at OTAs?I think it's good to see everybody together and where they're going to line up. Where's Leighton Vander Esch going to play? What are they going to do? I believe that Byron Jones is going to be your right corner. The rotation of the receivers is another thing I'm looking forward to. A lot of those questions can kind of get answered in the OTAs and the minicamps as we get to watch them with their own eyes.To what...
