    Peter King: Cowboys Rebuilt Secondary In One Offseason
    by One.Cool.Customer on Apr 30, 2012 4:30 PM CDT in Dallas Cowboys General

    On Friday, Peter King of recounted how Morris Claiborne ended up being drafted by the Cowboys. If you haven't read King's article, you should follow this link and read it, as it offers some good insight into how the Cowboys found themselves in a position to trade up and how Claiborne was the only player they had even considered trading up for.

    In his Monday Morning QB column, King picks up the Claiborne story once more, this time remarking on how the Cowboys have rebuilt their secondary in one offseason.

    Claiborne, the best corner in the draft, who no one thought had a prayer of getting beyond the fifth pick in the draft, was there for the Cowboys to pluck at six after trading. Dallas missed the playoffs last year because it couldn't play pass defense in the fourth quarter of the biggest games. And now the Cowboys have rebuilt the secondary (Claiborne, Brandon Carr) in one offseason. Claiborne was shaking with emotion talking about how his son now "is never going to want for anything. Now I'm a Cowboy ... It's ... just ...

    "Amazing. Amazing. Following in the footsteps of Deion Sanders. Amazing.''

    After the break we look at how that rebuilt secondary compares to last year's version and more importantly, how the Cowboys dropped the average age in the secondary by more than three years.

    Actually all of the ages listed are their 2012 opening day ages, just comparing the 2011 and 2012 roster.
