Report: Cowboys centered on making ‘impactful addition’ to offense
Offseason chatter is swirling across the Cowboys.
It’s simple. The Dallas Cowboys need assistance on offense. We will sit right here and speak about Dak Prescott and Mike McCarthy and clearly they’ve essential roles on the crew because the group’s quarterback and head coach, however soccer is a crew sport and assist is rarely a foul factor.
Many followers have petitioned for the Cowboys to accumulate assist over time, and an offseason in the past it felt like they did the other when it comes to a choice they made on the offensive aspect of the ball. They traded away Amari Cooper and a full season eliminated it seems that the crew has acknowledged their misstep and is raring to right it.
Thus far within the offseason we have now seen gamers like CeeDee Lamb, Micah Parsons, and Trevon Diggs brazenly foyer for the Cowboys to encompass Dak Prescott with extra expertise. Because the NFL Combine marches on it seems that the crew is severely contemplating doing that.
The Cowboys are centered on making an ‘impactful addition’ to the offense
In case you have been scrolling Twitter over the previous couple of days you may have seemingly seen a rumor that the Cowboys are engaged on one thing ‘large’, however particulars past which have been nearly nil, which is why we haven’t introduced any type of dialogue about it right here to the positioning. It’s the week of the NFL Mix which implies chatter throughout the league is in all places so that you by no means know what’s what.
That modified a bit on Thursday afternoon when the Dallas Morning News reported that the Cowboys are centered on making an ‘impactful addition’ to the offense. The DMN famous that Tony Pollard is anticipated to return and that this is able to be a separate type of addition. Additionally they indicated that it might come by the use of the draft or free company or by commerce (you realize, overlaying all bases) however the wording could be very fascinating.
If the Cowboys are to accumulate a veteran broad receiver by way of commerce, they aren’t near doing so. No such commerce is actively creating, an individual acquainted with the scenario mentioned Thursday. Likewise, in free company, nothing is imminent with Odell Beckham Jr., an individual near the previous Los Angeles Rams broad receiver mentioned. He’s eligible to be signed earlier than the March 15 begin of the league 12 months.
Nonetheless doable, it will be a mistake to imagine the addition the Cowboys make is at broad receiver. Including a good finish with top-five positional potential additionally would qualify. This draft class is extensively thought of to be very robust at tight finish, and Dallas owns the No. 26 total decide.
The Cowboys are dedicated to doing extra to assist Prescott this 12 months. A few of that includes creating the receivers they have already got. Different modifications can be philosophy-driven. As coach Mike McCarthy described Wednesday, an intensive self-scout is underway, inspecting methods to enhance the offense conceptually.
As you possibly can see the DMN famous that no type of commerce is shut, however once more this all feels considerably vital. That is both a sign that the Cowboys are engaged on one thing considerably reliable or simply an outright declaration of “the Cowboys wish to add good gamers to their offense” which doesn’t precisely look like breaking information.
It’s actually fascinating that the tight finish place is talked about right here, and whereas this draft class is thought to be deep at that place, it isn’t precisely widespread for rookie tight ends to make a huge effect. Maybe that may be a tea leaf in noting that the Cowboys might think about buying and selling for an elite tight finish over the offseason? That is admittedly studying a bit into issues now, however we’re some extent the place we’re throwing issues out for dialogue.
Perhaps that is one thing. Perhaps it’s nothing. The reality is, we’re on the level within the 12 months the place we don’t understand how a lot of one thing nothing actually is.
