4 trades that could make the Cowboys contenders in 2022
The Dallas Cowboys offseason for many, including myself, has been lackluster, to say the least. We should be used to this, but every offseason we hope for the best out of the front office. Now, with the 2022 NFL Draft complete and camps starting around the league, the Cowboys all of a sudden have received an influx of money thanks to the post-June 1st cut designation for former right tackle La’el Collins.
We should assume the Dallas front office is going to use this money on their current players instead of bringing in talent that can help this team immediately. But, let’s say that Jerry and Stephen Jones actually decide to spend the money on players outside of their current roster. This could help them secure not only free agents but players that are already established and currently on rosters showing the amount of value they currently have.
There are still a few moves the front office can make to really help solidify this 2022 roster. Here are a few options the Joneses should think about.
4 trades the Dallas Cowboys could make to become serious contenders in 2022
4. Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
This Dallas offense is in serious need of speed at receiver. In Week 1, they will already be without the acrobatic Michael Gallup and he wasn’t really the fastest receiver in the league. This WR corps would benefit greatly with the addition of speed at the position and one of the best candidates for this role would be a Texan turned Philadelphia Eagle in Jalen Reagor.
The former TCU Horned Frog just hasn’t been able to put things together in Philly. Maybe a change of scenery and a return home would benefit both him and the Cowboys greatly. His presence could allow the offense to also spread the field more to open up their running game.
Speed is something you can’t teach and Reagor has plenty of it. He has had some issues with holding onto the football, but that is something that can be taught. Another bonus is that he’s already familiar with what defenses around the league look like, especially in the NFC East, so his transition will really just depend on how quickly he could learn the playbook.
