Five thoughts regarding impending roster decisions for the Dallas Cowboys and what to expect from their defense for the upcoming season.

The games that matter for the Dallas Cowboys are approaching fast and difficult roster decisions are looming in the not too distant future. Here are five thoughts for Cowboys fans to consider going into Week 2 of the preseason.

There are two position groups that are going to be a nightmare to trim down for the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff: Wide receiver and defensive line.

Who won’t be in the wide receiver room at the end of the preseason

If Cowboys wide receiver Noah Brown doesn’t return soon from his hamstring injury the conversation will be easier but still, even without Brown in the mix, seven wideouts remain on the roster that should make the team.

Lance Lenoir has been making play after play in camp and he scored a touchdown in the Cowboys first preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers. The way he plays he reminds me of former Cowboy wideout Patrick Crayton. From what we have seen Lenoir has done enough to make the roster. Here is his touchdown from the Cowboys first preseason game.

That leaves us with Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns, Tavon Austin, Michael Gallup, Terrance Williams, Deonte Thompson, and Lenoir. Seven is a lot of wideouts to make a 53-man roster. Could one of these players be traded in the coming weeks?
