Former Cowboys CB Noah Igbinoghene signs with Commanders

The Cowboys’ two games with Washington in 2024 could look a lot like intrasquad scrimmages to Dallas fans.

The rival Commanders have signed free agent cornerback Noah Igbinoghene, as first reported Sunday by ESPN’s John Keim. The 24-year-old is the fourth former Cowboy this offseason to leave for Washington, joining Dorance Armstrong, Tyler Biadasz, and Dante Fowler Jr.

Igbinoghene is a former first-round draft pick, taken 30th overall by Miami in 2020 out of Auburn. After three mostly disappointing seasons with the Dolphins, he came to Dallas in a cornerback swap that sent Kelvin Joseph packing for South Beach.

The son of two Nigerian track and field Olympians, Igbinoghene scored the first points of the Cowboys’ 2023 season when he returned a blocked field goal attempt 58 yards in the season opener against the Giants.

But he was inactive for Week 2, as well as 11 more of the team’s 17-game regular-season schedule. He did see action in Dallas’s playoff loss to Green Bay, but Igbinoghene played just 118 total snaps with the Cowboys, the vast majority of them on special teams.
