3. Sign WR Tyler Boyd

This offseason, Tee Higgins is getting all the love — which is understandable. He's a young wideout set to hit the open market and offers enormous potential. However, he's not the only Cincinnati Bengals offensive weapon set for free agency. Also potentially available is Tyler Boyd, who just wrapped up his four-year, $43 million extension.

Cincinnati isn't expected to retain Higgins, who will top $20 million per season, but they could try and keep Boyd. If the notoriously frugal franchise isn't able to extend him, then Boyd could become a popular man in free agency. One team that should get in on the bidding is the Dallas Cowboys, who could use someone with Boyd's skill set.

Not known for his prowess on the outside, Boyd has excelled in the slot. Listed at 6-foot-2 and 203 pounds, he has more size than a typical slot receiver but still has the quickness in his route running to find open spots in a hurry. He also racks up the numbers in a hurry, coming off a campaign where he had 67 receptions for 667 yards despite playing with a backup quarterback for much of the year.

For his career, Boyd now has 513 catches for 6,000 yards with 31 touchdowns. He's topped 1,000 yards in a season twice in his career and while he wouldn't threaten that in Dallas, he would be a major problem for opposing defenses if they focused too much on CeeDee Lamb and Brandin Cooks.
