    In an ongoing thread of posts, we'll discuss potential free agent targets for the Dallas Cowboys coming off a 4-12 season, thanks in large part to several key injuries.

    2015 stats:61 tackles, 10 pass breakups, 2 interceptions

    Berry has made a tremendous return from a cancer diagnosis that forced him to miss much of the 2014 season and having just turned 27 years old, he likely has at least a few good years left in him.

    He's been one of the best safeties in the league since he came into the NFL in 2010 and if the Cowboys could add a player of his caliber it'd give them a dynamic duo at safety along with Byron Jones, who had a great rookie season in 2015 after he was the Cowboys No. 1 draft pick.

    Getting Berry to town would cost some money as he had a cap hit of more than $8.3 million in 2015.
