The Dallas Cowboys have traded cornerback Kelvin Joseph to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for cornerback Noah Igbinoghene, according to NFL Insider Josina Anderson.

Noah Igbinoghene was a first-round pick by the Dolphins in the 2020 NFL Draft, Kelvin Joseph, was a former Cowboys in the second round of the 2021 Draft.

Noah Igbinoghene, drafted as the 30th overall pick in 2020, played in 32 games for the Dolphins. Last season, he secured his first interception as he participated in 21 percent of defensive snaps and 9 percent of special teams snaps.

Kelvin Joseph made appearances in 16 games for the Cowboys during last season. While he played in a limited capacity on the defensive side, accounting for 14 percent of defensive snaps, he was more involvement in special teams, contributing to 66 percent of special teams snaps.

Igbinoghene is more of a slot cornerback, while Joseph is more of an outside cornerback.

Interestingly, the Miami Dolphins chose not to exercise the fifth-year option on Noah Igbinoghene’s rookie contract, so he will be eligible to hit free agency after the 2023 season if he doesn’t sign a new contract with Dallas.
