Morris Claiborne: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The Cowboys still aren't sure if Claiborne will be ready for the start of training camp, or where he'll slot into their secondary when he does get healthy, but so far his rehab from knee surgery is going well.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)He's recovering from surgeries on the patellar tendons in both of his knees, and at this point the Cowboys still aren't entirely sure if Claiborne will be ready for Week 1, much less training camp. If he's not, first round pick Byron Jones' development will become even more important for the team's secondary.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The option would have been worth about $11 million, and given Claiborne's checkered injury and performance history, the team deemed that to be too steep. As a result, he'll be an unrestricted free agent after the 2015 season.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The oft-injured Claiborne is expected to miss the beginning of training camp as he recovers from a patellar tendon injury, and the fact that the Cowboys used their first round pick on Byron Jones does cloud Claiborne's future with the team somewhat. Chances are the Cowboys will pick up the option though, in the hopes that Claiborne can finally stay healthy and begin to play up to his potential.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Morris Claiborne.
Claiborne battled injuries again in his second season, playing only 10 games and losing his starting spot to Orlando Scandrick. He's still just two years removed from being the sixth overall pick though, and the Cowboys aren't ready to give up on him yet. Don't look for big IDP numbers, but if he can stay healthy he should help solidify the Dallas secondary.
Claiborne had an up-and-down rookie season, recording 55 tackles and one interception, but the sixth overall pick in 2012 showed plenty of potential and looks poised to take a big step forward. He may not put up IDP-worthy numbers, but he'll be a key part of the Cowboys' team defense.
The Cowboys traded up in the first round to nab Claiborne, the player they thought was the one difference-maker available at cornerback in this year's draft. He'll start opposite free agent Brandon Carr in Dallas' revamped secondary and has both the ball-hawking skills and willingness to get physical that make him a potential IDP star if he adapts to the NFL quickly.
