2006 Free Agent Safeties

The Cowboys likely will be in the market for a free safety with their uncertain situation at the position.

Top Names:
Corey Chavous (Minnesota) — He has put together an up and down career, but Chavous isn't anything special. He's known as a cerebral player who is good at diagnosing a play but often doesn't make many big ones. Many around the league view him as more of a backup at this point than a starter.

Adam Archuleta (St. Louis) — At times, he can be very effective but only if he's playing close to the line or in a box. Archuleta is clearly a liability in pass coverage and is much better playing in confined quarters. Though he has some shortcomings, Archuleta is still one of their best defensive players and probably will be re-signed.
