MORRIS CLAIBORNE RUMORS

Denied: Dallas Cowboys decline to pick up cornerback’s fifth year option

Morris Claiborne probably saw the writing on the wall when the Dallas Cowboys selected UConn cornerback Byron Jones this past weekend near the end of the first round: With the 27th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the @DallasCowboys select Byron Jones, CB from UConn. #DALpick pic.twitter.com/xPQMBTPRnP — NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) May 1, 2015 Today we learned that Jones may indeed...

Cowboys Don’t Pick Up Morris Claiborne’s Option

In a less than surprising move, the Dallas Cowboys have decided not to pick up the fifth-year option on Morris Claiborne’s rookie contract (via ESPN). Claiborne, the team’s first-round pick in 2012, has struggled with injuries and inconsistency during his three-year NFL career. The Louisiana State product played sparingly in four games last year due to a knee injury. He also...

Report: Cowboys won't pick up contract option for Claiborne

Since being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys at No. 6 overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, Morris Claiborne has battled injuries and inconsistent play. This not exactly what the Cowboys were expecting him when they traded up in the first round to select Claiborne. He is on the verge of being labeled as a draft bust and unless he turns things around, his time with the Cowboys could come to...

Is This Morris Claiborne's Last Year with Dallas?

In the 2012 NFL draft, Morris Claiborne was projected to be the best defensive prospect of the entire class. He was named the SEC’s defensive player of the year during his previous season at LSU, and many analysts believed he was easily a top-10 pick. As a result, the Dallas Cowboys sold the farm to the St. Louis Rams, who had the No. 6 overall pick, to nab him, giving them their...

Cowboys Will Not Exercise 5th-year Option on Claiborne

There is a deadline approaching for Morris Claiborne on May 3rd and it is the option for the Cowboys to give him a 5th-year on his rookie contract. The 5th-year option is only applicable to players selected in the 1st round. The Cowboys would in essence be guaranteeing Claiborne a roster spot and a whopping $11.1 million for the 2016 season, he’s done zero to earn such a deal...

Report: Cowboys fear Morris Claiborne has torn ACL

Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne has been featured in the news a lot this week. Just five days ago he was ripped for storming out of the team's Valley Ranch training facility after being told he was to be demoted and would lose his starting job.

Jerry Jones questions Morris Claiborne's performance

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne was torched for five receptions, 108 yards and two scores against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. The former first-round pick has been absolutely atrocious when he’s actually seen the football field in his two-plus years with the team.

Dallas Cowboys: Early impressions from training camp

The Dallas Cowboys reported to training camp on Wednesday and their first padded practice was earlier today. Training camp has started off relatively slow with not much action going on. What has been said over and over with this Cowboys team defense is the focal point. This defense was shredded all last season especially the pass defense.

Why You Shouldn’t Be Discouraged About Morris Claiborne

It’s easy to be disappointed in Dallas Cowboys’ cornerback Morris Claiborne. And I get it. The Cowboys spent (essentially) a high first and second round pick on him and he has failed to live up to expectations. In two seasons, he has only two interceptions and has missed seven games due to multiple injuries. And when he has played, he hasn’t looked like the 6th overall pick...
