Cowboys Trade CB Kelvin Joseph for Former Dolphins 1st-Rounder: Report

The Dallas Cowboys have released one of their 2021 draft picks. The Cowboys have traded cornerback Kelvin Joseph to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for cornerback Noah Igbinoghene,

according to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Tuesday, August 29. Igbinoghene, a Dolphins first-round pick in 2020, struggled to obtain consistent playing time despite his high draft position.

"According to sources, the Dolphins are sending 2020 first-round pick Noah Igbinoghene to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for CB Kelvin Joseph, Dallas' former second-round pick," Schefter writes.

Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News had named Joseph as a probable trade or cut candidate prior to the transaction.

"Cornerback Kelvin Joseph and linebacker Jabril Cox were second- and fourth-round picks that year, respectively," Gehlken tweeted on Saturday, August 26.

"Neither appeared to do enough Saturday to put himself at ease as Tuesday's roster cutdown approaches." Both players will almost certainly be waived if they are not exchanged by then."

Over his first two seasons with the Cowboys, the 23-year-old Joseph appeared in 26 games, but he only started three. Last season,

Joseph was a temporary starter for Dallas, starting one game when crucial corners Jourdan Lewis and Anthony Brown were injured.
