The Dallas Cowboys have been very fortunate in their line of draft picks panning out, or exceeding expectation. Particularly in the last two seasons with Micah Parsons, CeeDee Lamb, and Trevon Diggs. All of whom play at Pro Bowl levels.

There’s still the hope that other players like Osa Odighizuwa, Tyler Biadasz or Chauncey Golston can fully realize their potentials. The same especially goes for second-year cornerback Kelvin Joseph who played in limited games in 2021 but made a big splash at the end of the season.

His future with the team has been a question for months following the murder of Cameron Ray back on March 18th. While Joseph was named a person of interest, he hasn’t been formally charged with any involvement. Now, it appears he won’t be.

It is being reported by Mickey Spagnola of DallasCowboys.com that Joesph has been cleared by Dallas County. He writes:

“There has been a lot of speculation over his availability after being a passenger in a car from where a fatal drive-by shooting took place late March in Dallas. But from I’ve learned, Joseph, who was not involved in the shooting, has been cleared by Dallas County officials, being truthful and forthcoming during the investigation, and remember he never was arrested or charged with anything.”

Mickey goes on to reiterate that despite not being charged, that doesn’t close the door on any potential discipline from the Dallas Cowboys or league office. The good news for Joesph is that at the very least he’s avoiding jail time, and an end to his promising career.

Now he’ll be able to head into training camp to compete with players like Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis for one of the starting jobs. Considering the amount of raw talent he displays, he and the Dallas Cowboys are both fortunate for this saga to culminate.
