Dallas Cowboys looking to re-sign former Aggies Safety

As teams are evaluating the new crop of talent entering the 2023 season, they are also looking at ways to keep their in-house contributors. The Cowboys had one of the better secondary groups in the country where Donovan Wilson produced one of the better seasons of his career.

While he didn’t specifically single out Wilson, Dallas Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones, stated the importance of keeping the current safety group together in a recent interview.

“It’s great to have all three of them. Obviously, a priority to keep them together. It will be one of our priorities.”

Wilson can essentially play all three safety positions but excels when coming downhill to put the brakes on anyone with the ball in their hands. He led the Cowboys in tackles (77) and led all defensive backs in the NFL in sacks (5).

The former Texas A&M safety has worked his way into the starting lineup after being drafted in the sixth round and is due for a payday from one of 32 teams. Due to the Cowboy’s depth in the secondary, his skills could demand a higher price tag than the notoriously cheap front office might allow him to walk. I personally would love to see him remain in the Silver and Blue for the next 3-5 years I would he gets what he deserves and continues to have a productive career.
