WATCH: Israel Mukuamu snatches 2nd INT of Cowboys preseason

·1 min read

After an interception against the Chargers, Dallas safety Israel Mukuamu make it a two-game streak in the first quarter against Seattle’s Drew Lock. The second-year player read Lock’s eyes perfectly and broke on the ball quickly for a man with a 6-foot-4 frame.

Mukuamu is listed as the backup strong safety behind Jayron Kearse, but it doesn’t mean he won’t see much playing time in 2022. In Dan Quinn’s system, the Cowboys mix in bigger secondary players and keeping Kearse and Mukuamu on the field together could be an option.

Entering his second season out of South Carolina, Mukuamu is making waves and is earning his way towards consistent playing time in the safety room for Dallas.
