This season, Dallas has used a combination of players to slotted knife try to fill that void.

DeMarcus Lawrence is a free agent and will likely be retained, but that still leaves a hole on the right side of the defensive line.

It already feels safe to say that Kris Richard will be a net positive on the entirety of the Dallas Cowboys defense, but his influence on the starting slot cornerback position is one to keep a constant eye on through the rest of training camp.
