Desmond Trufant Drawing Interest From Cowboys & Redskins Among Others


According to Jeremy Fowler, former Falcons CB Desmond Trufant is drawing interest from the Cowboys and Redskins, as well as a few other teams. 

Fowler says Trufant is most likely looking for a long-term deal after Atlanta dumped him to save cap space. The Jets have also come up as a potential suitor for Trufant.

Trufant, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Falcons back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $8.165 million contract when the Falcons picked up his fifth-year option worth $8.026 million for the 2017 season.

Atlanta later signed Trufant to a five-year, $69 million extension with nearly $42 million guaranteed in 2017. He stood to make a base salary of $10.75 million for the 2020 season. 

In 2019, Trufant appeared in nine games for the Falcons and recorded 18 tackles, four interceptions and seven passes defended.
