In 2011, Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys kept Terence Newman and spent $8 million on him. This was a huge mistake, because the whole secondary collapsed.
According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com the Cowboys have targeted Cortland Finnegan and Brandon Carr in free agency. They are the top two cornerbacks on the market. Jerry Jones should do everything possible to sign one of them.
Upgrading the secondary, should be the Cowboys biggest concern in free agency. Both Carr and Finnegan are technically candidates for the franchise tag. But the Chiefs are expected to use their tag on Dwayne Bowe. League sources indicates the Finnegan of the Tennessee Titans are not expected to use the franchise tag and have made virtually no progress in contract talks. The Cowboys usually get what they want in free agency when Jerry Jones gets his way.
