Cowboys with no interest in Deon Grant
By Calvin Watkins
Free agent safety Deon Grant told Sirius/XM that the New York Giants, Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys are interested in his services.
Multiple sources have said the Cowboys are not interested in Grant.
Last season, the Giants credited Grant with 58 total tackles, two tackles for loss, two quarterback hits and six pass breakups.
Grant, 33, plays free safety and with the addition of Brodney Pool in free agency to pair up with Gerald Sensabaugh, it doesn't make sense for the Cowboys to sign him.
Also, the Cowboys used a fourth-round pick on safety Matt Johnson from Eastern Washington.
If anything, the Cowboys are trying to get younger in the secondary, as evident by the team moving up to draft cornerback Morris Claiborne and signing cornerback Brandon Carr in free agency.
