The Dallas Cowboys are marred with issues and their secondary depth is something they will have to address coming up this offseason.

The addition of Byron Jones was thought to have bolstered this secondary to a point where they could afford to keep ineffective players such as Brandon Carr and Tyler Patmon. The Cowboys have appeared to change their tune about Patmon. It was announced on Tuesday that Tyler Patmon was waived in order for the Cowboys to assess their depth at the position. The Cowboys will also likely replace cornerback Brandon Carr as well considering his inconsistent play.

Carr also would save the Cowboys $8 million if they waived him in the offseason. The secondary could use some retooling however there are several other issues the Cowboys may have to address including adding to the pass rush as well as adding a premiere running back to this offense.

Patmon being waived my finally be a signal that the Cowboys are finally waiving the white flag and attempting to assess some of the other players on this roster. The Cowboys are currently in position to grab one of the top defense backs in the 2016 NFL draft so adding another 1st round cornerback is always a possibility.
