3 cost-effective offensive free agents the Cowboys must sign
2. Marvin Jones Jr., WR
Assuming the Cowboys fail to make a splash at wide receiver by trading for DeAndre Hopkins or Brandin Cooks or even Stefon Diggs, Dallas should be looking at adding to that position this offseason.
The Cowboys tried to do that last season after getting rid of Amari Cooper, but they failed. They signed James Washington to a cheap one-year contract and drafted Jalen Tolbert in the 3rd round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Both players combined for two catches for 12 yards on the year.
Dallas knows they need to surround Prescott with weapons this upcoming season. They could still add a wideout in the draft just like last year. However, adding a cheap veteran isn’t out of the question either.
Odell Beckham Jr. has been a possibility for the Cowboys for months now, but a multi-year deal over $12 million a season isn’t probably the best move for the team right now. So, adding a veteran like Jones Jr. makes a ton of sense.
Jones has both a former 1,000-yard and 10-touchdown season under his belt in his career. He is also a big deep-threat option that the Cowboys could use in their offense. Last season in Jacksonville, the 10-year vet put up 46 catches for 529 yards and three touchdowns with 11.5 yards per reception.
Being the fourth option with the Jaguars, Jones still put up efficient numbers with Trevor Lawrence. He won’t cost the Cowboys much to sign on a one-year deal– $3.4 million per spotrac. He can stretch the field and make big plays for Dallas like he has his whole career.
