3 things the Joneses need to do to get the Cowboys back on track
This offseason has been less than ideal for the Dallas Cowboys thus far. Not only have they gotten rid of Amari Cooper and La’el Collins but they also failed to re-sign Randy Gregory. When they did decide to sign players, they were mostly short-term underwhelming moves.
But, I am here to give the Joneses the blueprint to a successful offseason. There are still a few moves they can make in free agency and in the draft that can improve the team and put them back on track to repeat as NFC East champions.
3 moves Stephen and Jerry Jones must make to put the Cowboys back on track this offseason
3. Sign Another Free Agent Wide Receiver
The Cowboys recently added former Pittsburgh Steeler, James Washington, into the fold on a one-year deal. Washington can add depth, but he’s certainly not a big-name receiver. Dallas will need more help at that position, especially with Michael Gallup uncertain for the start of the season.
The two names that pop out to me as potential free agent signings are Jarvis Landry and Julio Jones. Yes, both of these players are older and have some injury history, but they are also proven in the league. Adding another veteran into the receiver room would help the development of the Cowboys’ young receivers and give Dak Prescott another big-time weapon to replace Cooper.
The inability of the front office to successfully sign other teams’ free agents has become a repeated issue. Dallas was the last team in the NFL to sign a player from a different team in free agency, and they continue to live by the “we like our guys” philosophy, which has not worked for the past 25 years.
They need to expand their level of thinking and go find more talented players from other teams in free agency. There are still plenty of talented players available and now is the time to go land some experienced wide receivers that can help the offense.
