The Dallas Cowboys don't face the LA Chargers until Week 6, but Kellen Moore is a popular talking point around these parts after he helmed the No. 1 red zone offense in the NFL last season and the Cowboys are currently one of the worst teams in the league in translating red zone trips to touchdowns.

A few adjustments from Mike McCarthy should get the job done, but it speaks volumes Moore's Chargers are tied for seventh in red zone scoring percentage and McCarthy's Cowboys find themselves tied for 27th at 40 percent.

The Moore discourse isn't going anywhere if McCarthy doesn't right the ship. In the meantime, though, Dallas' former offensive coordinator has plucked former fifth-round pick and fan favorite Simi Fehoko from the Steelers' practice squad.

Fehoko was signed to the Chargers active roster and gives Moore's high-flying offensive insurance at receiver in light of Mike Williams' season-ending injury.

The 25-year-old Fehoko confirmed the news with a clever tweet.

It's great to see Fehoko sign to a 53-man roster. Stuck behind George Pickens, Allen Robinson and the ascending Calvin Austin, among others, in Pittsburgh, the former Cowboy (should) have a clear pathway to snaps with the Chargers.

Keenan Allen is far and away Justin Herbert's favorite target, but there's volume to go around following Williams' injury. Josh Palmer projects to start opposite Allen, but he's never been consistent, and 2023 first-round pick Quentin Johnston is playing less than 25% of the snaps through three games.

Reunited with his former OC, this is a great opportunity for Fehoko to jumpstart his career.

In other Cowboys news, Micah Parsons caught wind of the Travis Kelce-Taylor Swift dating rumors (how could he not?) and addressed it on "The Edge" podcast with Bleacher Report. Parsons revealed he's an old school "Swiftie" and gave Kelce major props for shooting his shot with the 12-time Grammy Award winner.

Swift was all the rage this weekend when she was spotted in a suite at Arrowhead Stadium with Kelce's family. Parsons likened Kelce to NBA superstar Stephen Curry and called on his Twitter followers to start getting up shots.

"You shot from deep and you scored," Parsons said on his podcast. "You Stephen Curry, my brother. You might be the new Steph of football. That's dope. I can't even lie. I wanna see somebody shoot at somebody else. The NFL, we up right now.

"I challenge all my other NFL guys. Start shootin' from deep. Start shootin' from deep. ... We gotta start shootin', brother. Publicly shooting. ... We gotta start going, brothers. I think Trav set the standard for this."

You have to love Parsons looking out for the people. Hopefully some success stories come of it, but nothing will top Kelce and Swift linking up.
