REPORT: Cowboys sign CONTROVERSIAL draftee

Cowboys are confident the charges against their prospect will be dismissed.

It turns out the 2017 NFL draft will be a good one for the Cowboys: they have now officially signed each of nine of their draft picks. 

According to CBS Sports, they have reportedly signed cornerback Jourdan Lewis, selected 92nd overall, to a four-year deal. This means that Dallas decided to have faith in Lewis, despite a pending domestic violence charge against him.

The former University of Michigan CB was charged following an incident that apparently occurred in March. He is accused of "grabbing his girlfriend by the neck and dragging her across the floor at the apartment they shared" in Ann Arbor, Michigan. 

Lewis used Twitter to confront his detractors:

"The Cowboys expressed confidence that Lewis' arrest and charges would be dismissed and that his troubles would be behind him," per Yahoo Sports. 

The 21-year-old won the Tatum-Woodson Defensive Back of the Year in 2016, an award attributed by coaches and media of the Big Ten Conference at the end of each season.
