Sitting here at the end of June, Dallas Cowboys’ spacious reception room will look very different in the 2022 season than last year. Amari Cooper went to Cleveland for an update, Cedrick Wilson went to Miami and Malik Turner left for San Francisco. It’s three of the six broad receivers that played elsewhere in the 2022 season last season.
However, the Cowboys WR group is not without talent as they re-signed Michael Gallup, promoted CeeDee Lamb to WR1 and drafted talented Jalen Tolbert from South Alabama to help the unit. James Washington was brought to Pittsburgh to compete, Noah Brown is back in his supposed usual blocking WR role with some catching ability, while sophomore Simi Fehoko is back and the team hopes to make the jump in the second season. . The team is intrigued by TJ Vasher, whose staff is excited to complete his potential unit.
Understanding who has left and who is here is important because it allows us to be true that the Cowboys should not sit idly by and should look for ways to improve their position. There are high-quality players on this list, guys who have played before, but it’s not perfect and there’s room for improvement. Michael Gallup skips due to ACL injury, Tolbert is a newcomer and you think about how his development will look and how soon the NFL game will reach him, and James Washington can help the team because he has played before. , but how much is a million dollar question.
If we are going to look at how to improve a position group, we need to look at who and how. Who is available and how they can help. Let’s take a closer look:
When we get to the offseason later, the options for being added to the list will diminish, but Will Fuller has been very helpful to Cowboys since the start of the season. Fuller is a speed threat who is still only 28 years old and can really raise his defenses if possible.
Fuller has had his share of injuries, and staying on the field is always a concern for him, but if the break is so late, the money would be wise, and we know the Cowboys will watch it first. Secondly, the risk would be minimal, bring it to compete. If there is talent, if it is healthy and able to impress, it is a small price to pay for a position. If Fuller were to move, it could be assumed to be one way or another between him and James Washington, and it could be a real claim that Fuller is a better and more complete player. However, as Gallup rehab is still unknown, it may allow both to be available early.
Hilton is a smart veteran known as an intelligent runner who may be able to offer juice to the position group at the age of 32. Hilton has spent his entire career in the Indianapolis Colts, but being 30 on the other side, the Colts seem to be moving on from him.
The possible link between Hilton and Cowboys has been debated throughout the break, and like any player this time of year, it may be worth it to kick the tires to see what’s available and what it looks like to add money. presence of veterans.
There are other brighter names available that we didn’t mention, like Odell Beckham or Julio Jones, but the goal is to be realistic. Odell Beckham is coming out of the torn ACL in the Super Bowl, and Julio Jones may not make much sense for Cowboys at the moment.
The idea of adding Humphries might be what the Cowboys would like to do. Humphries is still 28 years old and is a shifted runner on the route, able to provide juice for Dak Prescott and his transgression on short to intermediate routes. Humphries didn’t make the season last year, he fought in Washington with injuries and an inconsistent QB game, but adding a more stable attack with an established QB may be just what he needs. The money is not a concern, as expectations are likely to fluctuate too little, and if that is the case, it will not hurt the Cowboys to visit him to see if a seizure can occur. The worst case scenario is that he does not fit and you waste training, the best chance is that he could come to compete to improve the position group.
