The NFL trade deadline is Nov. 1 this season and the Dallas Cowboys are one of the teams that should be a buyer in 2022. They find themselves in arguably the best division in the NFL — surprisingly — and are in third place despite being 5-2.

They’re fortunate to be in the position they are as they won four games with Dak Prescott sidelined. While Cooper Rush did his job, Dallas could use more help at wide receiver. CeeDee Lamb, Noah Brown, and Michael Gallup have all done well but they’re thin behind them — and as we saw when Gallup was hurt, one injury can be devastating to their receiving corps.

With that being the case, here are four potentially available wideouts the Cowboys should call about before the deadline.

4. Kendrick Bourne, New England Patriots

A sixth-year veteran, Kendrick Bourne spent four seasons with the San Francisco 49ers before joining the New England Patriots in 2021. He had his most productive campaign that year with 55 receptions for 800 yards and five touchdowns.

Through the first six games in 2022, he hasn’t been getting the ball nearly as often as he’s started with 11 receptions for 156 yards. He finds himself behind Jakobi Meyers, Nelson Agholor, and DeVante Parker in this offense which is why he might be available.

He could take over the role Dallas expected James Washington or rookie Jalen Tolbert to man, but have been unable to do so with Washington injured and Tolbert unable to earn any snaps. A veteran presence such as Bourne’s could be what this offense needs to start moving the ball with more consistency.
