IRVING, Texas - The Cowboys have signed several of their own free agents already in the last 10 days, but now have their eyes on some more higher-profile players from other teams.
Free agent running back Alfred Morris, who spent the last four years in Washington, is expected to visit the Cowboys at Valley Ranch on Monday. The club is also planning to meet with cornerback Patrick Robinson, a first-round pick of the Saints back in 2010.
Morris is coming off his lowest single-season rushing total of his career, racking up just 751 yards and one touchdown in 2015. Morris began his career with three straight 1,000-yard seasons, including a 1,613-yard rookie season in 2012. The two-time Pro Bowler has never missed a start in his four-year career, which began as a sixth-round pick from Florida Atlantic.
However, Morris has seen his stats drop each season, both in yards and rushing average.
The Cowboys re-signed Lance Dunbar this week, however he is recovering from knee surgery on both a torn ACL and a torn patella tendon. It's unlikely Dunbar will be ready for the start of the 2016 season. The Cowboys are also expected to draft a running back to pair alongside Darren McFadden, who ranked fourth in the NFL last year with 1,089 rushing yards.
The Cowboys added Robert Turbin in mid-season but the free agent signed with the Colts this week.
As for Robinson, the 32nd overall pick of the Saints in 2010, he spent last season with the Chargers after a five-year stint in New Orleans. The 5-10, 190-pounder corner has 10 career interceptions, including one last year in 10 starts in San Diego.
