For some reason, cornerback Brandon Boykin hasn’t been able to keep or find a job lately, even on teams that really need help at his position.
Now, he’s going to get a chance to convince a team without a glaring need.
According to Todd Archer of ESPN.com, the Cowboys will meet with the veteran corner.
The Eagles traded him to the Steelers last year, but they let him walk. The Panthers signed him inMarch and cut him in May, after drafting three cornerbacks. Then the Falcons brought him in for a workout but passed.
Whether the reason is physical or otherwise, a number of teams who need corners have said no thanks.
The Cowboys are hoping to have Orlando Scandrick back for training camp after his knee injury, but they held onto Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne this offseason. So while they could use some depth, it’s not the most pressing need. And it will be interesting to see if they come to the same conclusion four other teams did in the last year.
