The Cowboys are already sniffing around at replacements for Rashard Robinson. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports (via Twitter) that cornerback Holton Hill worked out for the Cowboys today. However, Clarence Hill of the Fort-Worth Star Telegram tweets that the defensive back left Dallas without a deal.
Hill, a 2018 undrafted free agent out of Texas, spent the first three seasons of his career with the Vikings. The defensive back saw time in 16 games (three starts) as a rookie, finishing with 36 tackles, seven passes defended, and an interception while appearing in 36-percent of his team’s defensive snaps.
Unfortunately, Hill has only seen time in 12 games since that time, collecting 37 tackles, one sack, and four passes defended. His 2019 campaign was limited by a pair of suspensions, while his 2020 campaign was limited thanks to a stint on injured reserve. The 24-year-old was ultimately waived/injured by the Vikings in December.
With Robinson set to miss a pair of games thanks to suspension, the Cowboys moved on from the defensive back last week. The team is currently rostering eight cornerbacks, a relatively modest number heading into camp, so it’s not a surprise that they’re pursuing options at the position.
