To the point

Well, this is the point. While Julio Jones would help put any team over the top, he is not a fit for the Dallas Cowboys. Yes, it would be amazing to see, but it is too good to be true.

The Cowboys don’t need or have the space for his services. A move for the wideout would cost assets that would be very useful to improve the defense or fill a potential hole along the offensive line next season.

Fitting the hefty salary cap hit would be a pain to do. That would mean one or two impact players in Dallas would need to leave the team. Then, who will fill in for them?

The offense boasts an arsenal of receivers. That includes a star, a soon-to-be star, and a lethal vertical threat. Add in a high potential wideout with blazing speed and a big frame.

That doesn’t include the group of tight ends, which are sure to cause problems for opposing safeties and linebackers. Dalton Schultz and Blake Jarwin are both starting-caliber players. Jarwin has big-play abilities, while Schultz can be a safety net and hold his own when blocking.

Sometimes, adding a star player is not the best thing to do. The salary cap is the main reason why. Had football worked like soccer, the Dallas Cowboys would, without a doubt, be a top team every year.

We have to make do with what we got. Thankfully, the Cowboys are still in a good spot. They should still be playoff contenders.

The attention should stay put on the defense rather than the offense. Continuing to try the same method will have the team finish the same way. That being a disappointing finish in the playoffs … if they make it.

The team made impressive moves this offseason, so let’s hope this continues to next season. If that happens, then the Dallas Cowboys should become Super Bowl contenders once again.
