Could Leon Hall become a Dallas Cowboy?

Leon Hall has completed a visit with the Arizona Cardinals and is now headed to Texas to meet with the Dallas Cowboys, according to Ian Rapoport.

The former Bengals cornerback could end up on a loaded offseason cornerback roster with the Cowboys featuring Brandon Carr, Morris Claiborne, Buddy Jackson, Byron Jones, Brandon McGee, Terrance Mitchell, Deji Olatoye, Orlando Scandrick and Josh Thomas. There were rumors early on in free agency that Carr was going to be cut and that the Cowboys were interested in Bengals cornerback Adam Jones to replace him. As Jones re-signed with the Bengals, it appears Hall could be another option for the team.

Hall, a former 18th-overall pick of the 2007 NFL Draft out of Michigan, joined the Bengals and became one of the NFL's top corners over the next four seasons. From 2007-2010, Hall had 18 interceptions, and 71 passes deflected. Hall and another current cornerback in Texas, Johnathan Joseph, who's now with the Texans, became one of the NFL's best cornerback tandems.

The Bengals have given Hall practice and playing time at safety in the past few years and that could be an added bonus for the team that ends up signing him in free agency. The Cowboys are much less stacked at safety than they are at the cornerback spot.
