After Zay Jones hit the open market, the Dallas Cowboys were one of many teams to show interest in the veteran wideout. In what's become a typical outcome, however, Jones signed elsehwere as he agreed to terms with the Arizona Cardinals.

Dallas, which was once a prime destination, seems to be struggling as of late to close the deal — which might have something to do with Stephen Jones being incredibly frugal and offering the veteran minimum to every player.

Now that they struck out with Jones, the Cowboys should turn their attention to wideouts sitting on the roster bubble. But rather than waiting for them to hit the open market, the Cowboys should call their current teams and see if they can make a deal to get them on the roster ahead of camp.

4. David Bell, Cleveland Browns

A third-round pick in 2022, David Bell was a production machine for the Purdue Boilermakers but hurt his draft stock when he ran a 4.65 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. He wound up with the Cleveland Browns who were looking for a replacement for Jarvis Landry but he has yet to make good on his potential.

Entering year three, Bell has 381 yards and three touchdowns on 38 receptions. He's also suddenly falling down the depth chart with Amari Cooper, Jerry Jeduy, Elijah Moore, and Cedric Tillman all ahead of him. He's also likely to fall behind rookie Jamari Thrash, putting his roster spot in jeopardy.

Dallas might be able to convince the Browns to send him their way for a late-round pick. In Dallas, Bell might be WR4 at best but that's a better spot for him and it would give the Cowboys someone with sure hands who is capable of beating man coverage in the slot.
