Offensive Free Agents Continued…
Two Dallas Cowboy wide receivers will hit the open market as both Terrance Williams and Brice Butler are scheduled to become free agents. Butler has made less of an impact but will be a lot cheaper than re-signing Williams.

I would legitimately look to move on from both and reload the wide receiving corps. But the more likely situation will be that Williams gets overpaid and Butler remains affordable.
The consistency level is just not high enough to really have either player as an effective number two wide receiver. Tight end Gavin Escobar will also become a free agent as the Cowboys will likely let him go after he failed to carve out a role for himself on offense.
Finally, we have two offensive guards, one of which is one of the Cowboys top free agents heading into the 2017 offseason. Offensive guards Ronald Leary and Jonathan Cooper will hit free agency and this may force the Cowboys to look for offensive line help in the draft.
Leary will get a monstrous contract, one in which the Cowboys simply cannot match. The team does not have the best cap situation in the NFL but can still make a play for several productive players during free agency, especially if they let Leary walk.
