Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Leon Hall is set for a free agent visit with the Dallas Cowboys on Wednesday, per multiple sources.

Hall has already visited the Arizona Cardinals.

The Cowboys were also expecting a visit Wednesday from former Rams defensive end Chris Long but he changed those plans by signing a one-year contract with the New England Patriots on Tuesday night.

The Cowboys are turning their attention to Hall in a continued effort to shore up their cornerback position. Orlando Scandrick is the top corner, but he is coming off season-ending knee surgery.

They re-signed Morris Claiborne to a one-year deal last week.

There remains some uncertainty surrounding Brandon Carr and his $9 million base salary that owner Jerry Jones acknowledges remains a big issue.

The signing of Hall at a likely much cheaper price could make Carr a salary-cap casualty.

Hall, 31, has spent his entire nine-year career with the Bengals. He started four games last year because of the emergence of Adam Jones, Dre Krkpatrick and Darqueze Denard as the lead trio.

Hall still had 55 tackles, two picks and nine pass deflections in 14 games. Carr had 76 tackles, no interceptions and six pass deflections in 16.

As free agency looms, the owner says there are reasons he may want the controversial defensive end back with Dallas. (Video by Clarence Hill)
