Source: Cowboys working out DB Antwaun Molden
Molden was cut by the New York Giants this summer and had worked out for the Oakland Raiders.
The Houston Texans drafted Molden in third-round pick from Eastern Kentucky in 2008. After three seasons, Molden was released and signed with the New England Patriots for the 2011 season in which he played in 16 games and earned two starts. He had two interceptions.
The Cowboys will have 52 players on their roster after officially placing safety Barry Church on injured reserve because of a torn Achilles.
The safety position has issues. Taking a look at Molden, who has the skill set to play the position, makes sense.
Church is not the only safety on the roster with health issues. Starting strong safety Gerald Sensabaugh (calf), who missed the Week 3 win over Tampa Bay, said he's all right, but there is no word yet on whether he can play Monday night against the Chicago Bears.
Re-signing cornerback/safety Mario Butler, who was cut Saturday to make room for linebacker Orie Lemon, is another possibility. Butler cleared waivers Monday. But there are other safeties worth looking at such as Charlie Peprah and Brodney Pool.
