    CB Interest Goes Beyond Carr, Finnegan
    Posted by jellis

    ...Most prominent among the other unrestricted players-to-be are Arizona's Richard Marshall, New Orleans' Tracy Porter and the New York Giants' Terrell Thomas, all of whom are in their late 20s.

    Baltimore's LarDarius Webb may be the best free agent cornerback, but he is restricted, and is likely to receive at least a first-round level tender from the Ravens.

    With as many as a dozen potential starting-caliber cornerbacks expected to be available, it's wrong to assume the Cowboys will drop big money on one of the top names as soon as free agency opens.

    More likely, the team will stick to its history of shopping for bargains on the open market. That could still mean Carr or Finnegan, but at a price the Cowboys are comfortable paying for their services.

    I think Thomas and the Giants are close to a deal

    I don't like Grimes at all...anyone who mails a playoff game in so he doesn't get hurt is bad news in my book.

    I like Richard Marshall, won't break the bank and can play many positions.

    If they're going to buy a CB then they need to spend it on decent quality. We don't need a JAG even if we don't need a star.

    I'm always surprised at how low Tracy Porter is on some of these lists. Maybe I don't watch the Saints enough, but when I do, he shows up.

    I just know that the Cowboys supposedly liked him a lot in that draft, and he may not be quite as expensive as some of the other guys on the list.

    I agree, he's just not really a press CB, but his style is like a younger TNew's.
