Report: Cowboys meet with veteran safety Robert Blanton
The Dallas Cowboys played host to a veteran safety in the hopes of finding some free agency value.
As it stands, the team would depend on backup Jeff Heath and second-year safety Kavon Frazier to get the job done in 2017 -- while still keeping a keen eye on what has turned out to be an insanely deep draft class full of defensive backs.
The latter isn't stopping them from value-shopping in free agency, however, as they just reportedly hosted a meeting with veteran Robert Blanton.

The 6-foot-1, 200 lb. Blanton was a fifth-round pick in 2012 by the Minnesota Vikings and led the team in tackles in 2014 (105) before landing with the Buffalo Bills on a one-year, $840K deal.
That deal would end rather unceremoniously, though, as Blanton would eventually find himself on the Bills' injured reserve list after suffering a foot injury in Week 11 of the 2016 season.
Now healthy and looking for a new NFL home, the Cowboys look interested in at least kicking the tires to get a reading.
