Injury prone yes, but when fit and healthy is arguably the Cowboys best Corner. Brandon Carr hits 31 before the start of next season and either though he has not missed a game in his career, his asking price will be much higher then Jerry Jones will be willing to pay.
Claiborne is cheaper and likely have to settle for another prove-it deal in free agency, which favours the Cowboys.
Even with the likelihood of Tony Romo departing the Cowboys, they should allow Sanchez to walk also.
Is not worth the $2 Million salary he is currently earning as it was evident in week 17 performance against the Eagles where he came on after halftime allowing Dak Prescott to rest and threw for 2 Interceptions and was sacked 3 times.
Let him walk Cowboys, there are better backup QB’s out there then Mark Sanchez.
