The Dallas Cowboys have released veteran cornerback Nolan Carroll, freeing up the starting cornerback job for rookie Jourdan Lewis. Here’s what NFL.com wrote about the former Wolverine:
The cut is a nod to 2017 third-round pick Jourdan Lewis, who arguably has been the team’s best cornerback this season. Dallas’ defense has surprised plenty this year and getting a professional starter-grade performance from a rookie in a tight spot adds to the intrigue. Its numbers have slipped of late, but it seems like Lewis isn’t going anywhere.
