4 Cowboys who don’t deserve another season in 2022
1. Trysten Hill, DT
Look. Trysten Hill is a great football player. The sad reality is that at just 23 years old, the defensive tackle just can’t seem to stay on the field. For the most part, that has been due to injury. But as seen in the tweet below, he was also suspended in 2021 for throwing a punch after the Thanksgiving game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
In three seasons with Dallas, Hill has sadly played in just 18 games. He has only started in five and all five of those contests were back in 2020. Warning. These upcoming stats are brutal. In three years, Hill has a total of 27 combined tackles, eight QB hits, and 0.5 sacks. Not even one full sack in three years! We understand that injury plays a huge factor in this, but that’s also part of the point. Durability is a huge factor for any player on the offensive or defensive line.
Hill was a highly touted 2019 draftee and was picked in the second round by Dallas. After his selection, the Central Florida product had a meager season. Then, he sustained a season-ending ACL injury in October of 2020. Hill wouldn’t return to practice with the Cowboys for over a year. Carlos Watkins and Osa Odighizuwa held down the fort while Hill was gone.
It’s very possible that Hill could earn his starting spot back, but the reality is that his production and injury-prone body are a liability for the Cowboys. It’s sad to see all that potential go out the window.
