Here are the names of five Dallas Cowboys players who should have their faces plastered to the sides of milk cartons because they’ve gone missing.
It happens every season. There is always a group of Dallas Cowboys players that, for one reason or another, get hyped up as the next big thing in Big D. At the very least, everyone starts the new year with high expectations.
Sometimes it’s outstanding performances in training camp. Maybe, it’s a stellar showing in the preseason. Or it could be they are coming off an excellent season. The expectation is for said player to exceed their previous performance…or at the very least, maintain their level of play.
Then, nothing. They all but disappear when the real games start again. I mean, these players are so invisible, you’d have to plaster their faces to the sides of milk cartons just to find them.
Maybe their a second-year youngster who excelled their first season. Or it could be a harden veteran who flashed potential only to recoil into mediocrity. Finally, think of the high draft pick that plays like an undrafted free agent when the bright lights come on.
Regardless, a group of Cowboys players always fall into this category every season. In the land of the missing. And their absence is even more evident and pronounced when the same team that went 13-3 the previous year starts the new one 3-3.
In the next few pages, we’ll dive into this list of Dallas Cowboys players who have disappeared at times this season. Some of them have simply failed to meet expectations. Others have seemingly dropped off the radar completely. But all of them have been gone missing in a season America’s Team needs all the help they can get.
