In an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio on Tuesday, Cowboys free agent S Barry Church mentioned that while this is going to be a business decision for him, he would still show some loyalty to Dallas for giving him an opportunity.
“It is a business decision but have to show some loyalty to the Sirius Radio.since they gave me an opportunity,” Church said, per
Church did, however, say he’s excited to see what will happen in the next month, even if he ends up signing with another team.
“I’m excited to see what the future holds whether it is with the Cowboys or somewhere else” Church said, per Sirius.
Church is in position to be one of the best available safeties in next year’s free agent, so it could be difficult for the Cowboys, who are currently in a tough cap situation, to offer him a market-value contract and still address other roster needs.
Church, 29, wound up signing on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Toledo back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract and later signed a four-year extension with Dallas.
In 2016, Church appeared in 12 games for the Cowboys and recorded 85 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and four pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 11 safety out of 89 qualifying players.
