4. Cowboys sign Marquise Brown, release Michael Gallup

Michael Gallup has been far from the player we remember in 2019. A former third-round pick from Colorado, he broke out with 66 receptions for 1,107 yards with six touchdowns in his second season in the NFL. Paired with Amari Cooper, the Cowboys had one of the more feared passing attacks in the NFL.

Unfortunately, injuries began to slow Gallup down. He appeared in just nine games in 2021 and saw his season end with a torn ACL. Despite being injured, Dallas signed him to a five-year extension and traded Cooper away. Thankfully, CeeDee Lamb has been up to the task of being a legit No. 1 wideout because Gallup has been a disappointment. He’s coming off a frustrating campaign that saw him catch just 34 passes (on 57 targets) for 418 yards with two touchdowns.

The Cowboys can move him as a post-June 1 cut and save some money, which is what they do here. They can use that relief to extend other players after the money comes available but before then, they replace Gallup with Marquise Brown in this prediction.

A former first-round pick for the Ravens, Brown had over 1,000 yards in 2021 but wasn’t able to top the mark with Arizona over the past two seasons. He’s still capable of stretching the field with his speed and might come in at a decent rate coming off a 574-yard campaign. Having him, Lamb, Brandin Cooks, and Jake Ferguson would truly open up the offense.
