The Dallas Cowboys have been taking their time finding players they think can help this team. So who’s left that can make an impact on this team?
When free agency started for the Dallas Cowboys it seemed like they were going to sit on the sidelines again and fans were going to go off on the team. Business as usual I guess, but in Cowboys fashion they’ve been able to sign players that have shown they can make plays in the NFL.
But this team still has three positions that they need to address in free agency, so they can go into the draft with the ability to draft the best players that fall to them.
First up wide receivers, the loss of Randall Cobb leaves a big hole in production for the Dallas Cowboys. Cobb was the third best receiver for the Cowboys catching 55 passes for 828 yards and three touchdowns. So here are some players the Cowboys might be able to sign to replace that production.
Last season Sanders was one of two players to end up playing 17 games last season after he was traded from the Denver Bronco to the San Francisco 49ers. He was productive on both teams catching a total of 66 passes for 869 yards and five touchdowns.
Very similar stats when compared to Cobb which means the Dallas Cowboys would be able to easily replace Cobb’s production. The biggest question for Sanders will be how much money is he willing to play for because if he’s looking for a big number it’s not going to come from Jerry and Stephen Jones.
The former Baltimore Raven, Cleveland Brown, and Tampa Bay Buccaneer never lived up to his first round draft position. Now some of that could be due to the quarterbacks he had throwing him the ball in Baltimore and Cleveland but once he arrived in Tampa Bay everything seemed to click for Perriman especially when teammate Mike Evans went down with an injury.
Perriman say more passes coming his way and ended up with 36 receptions for 645 yards and six touchdowns; all career highs for Perriman. The Cowboys could bring Perriman in and use him in the slot or on the outside if they want to move Amari Cooper around to take advantage of matchups.
If the Dallas Cowboys are looking for a quick on the line receiver that can get open underneath and create yards after the catch (YAC) for quarterback Dak Prescott then Gabriel is your man. While he is short in stature he makes up for it in heart and his skills breaking down slot corners. He plays a game similar to Cobb, but he has more speed to break away from defenders which would help the Cowboys on short yardage downs when teams are focusing on stopping running back Ezekiel Elliott.
All three of these players would be a nice signing for the Cowboys in free agency if they can get them on a cheap prove it deal.
