Cowboys news: Team needs to decide if they should keep Jourdan Lewis as insurance

Jourdan Lewis might be cut at some point this offseason, or be an insurance policy.

“[Lewis] had several productive seasons at cornerback until he sustained a foot injury and landed on IR after six games in 2022. He’s scheduled to earn $5 million this season in his final season under contract. The Cowboys have Trevon Diggs and Stephon Gilmore as their starters, with last year’s fifth-round pick DaRon Bland playing well (five interceptions and 54 tackles) as the third corner in Lewis’ absence.”

PFF gave Bland a 71.9 grade for his work last season, a better mark than Lewis has ever had as the Cowboys’ nickel corner.
