Fresh off an ugly six-win campaign under then first-year head coach Mike McCarthy, the Dallas Cowboys have done a lot to upgrade at some areas of major need. They still need to make some moves to compete with the Washington Football Team in the NFC East this season.
Dallas Cowboys sign Richard Sherman
Youngsters Trevon Diggs and Jourdan Lewis could end up being a nice pair of cornerbacks. Rookie second-round pick Kelvin Joseph from LSU has a bright future ahead of himself. With that said, the Cowboys must add more experience to the defensive secondary if they want to improve a defense that yielded 34 passing touchdowns against 10 interceptions a season ago.
That’s where the 33-year-old Sherman comes into play. He’s going to wait until training camp to latch on with a contending team. Despite missing all but five games a season ago with the San Francisco 49ers, Sherman is one year removed from earning a Pro Bowl spot. At the very least, he’d act as a tremendous veteran presence for the three youngsters listed above.
