Cowboys won't sign Brandon Boykin, per report

Is Boykin done in the NFL?

Former Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin will not be signing with the Cowboys after working out for Dallas on Wednesday, according to Clarence Hill of the Star Telegram.

The Cowboys are the second team to pass on Boykin since he was released by the Carolina Panthers in May. Boykin also visited the Falcons but left without a contract.

It's been rumored that Boykin has a degenerative hip condition, but the 25-year-old cornerback denied that accusation.

It's hard to imagine there isn't some kind of issue if teams keep passing on Boykin like this. There are 2,880 roster spots in the NFL in the offseason (90 players on 32 teams) and it's hard to believe he can't at least get a shot somewhere.

The fifth round pick the Eagles acquired for trading Boykin last summer continues to look like a steal. Philadelphia ended up drafting offensive lineman Halapoulivaati Vaitai with that selection.
