Patience in free agency and no first-round pick mean the Cowboys . . . are elite?

Patience in free agency and no first-round pick mean the Cowboys . . . are elite?

Turns out those things put them in some pretty rarefied company. The Dallas Cowboys face a tough road ahead. They sat out the first wave of free agency, and have no first-round pick in the draft (because, Amari Cooper). That means the handwriting is on the wall, and 2019 is fated to be a disaster leading to the firing of head coach Jason Garrett and the beginning of a massive rebuild. That’s the belief of many fans and writers alike. Yet it turns out it may be completely wrong. Those two things about the Cowboys may actually signal that they are now a top tier NFL power. Or at least...

Four players the Dallas Cowboys should consider trading up for in the second round of the NFL Draft

Four players the Dallas Cowboys should consider trading up for in the second round of the NFL Draft

If the Cowboys could move up in the second round of the draft, who do you hope it’s for? The Dallas Cowboys don’t get to select a player until pick 58. That’s so long. Yes, we keep reminding ourselves that the team now has Amari Cooper on the roster and that makes us feel better. But still, there are a lot of great players in the upcoming draft that aren’t even in consideration for the Cowboys this year. Certainly, there are ways around this. The front office could get back into the first round by simply trading more future draft capital. That’s an expensive route to go. While we...

Cowboys have the second-best odds to win the NFC East in 2019

Cowboys have the second-best odds to win the NFC East in 2019

The reigning division champs are being slept on. Last season saw the Dallas Cowboys win their third division title in five years, and it was without question the most surprising of the trio. Dallas fell into a 3-4 hole to begin the season, traded for Amari Cooper, lost again, and then started cooking with gas. They would win all but one of their final eight games, experience success in the postseason, and were one of the NFL’s final eight teams. That’s not a horrible season. This miraculous run featured an NFC East title for the Cowboys and that’s where things ultimately start for...

Here are five different scenarios where the Cowboys choose not to re-sign one of their young stars

Here are five different scenarios where the Cowboys choose not to re-sign one of their young stars

If the team passes on not re-signing one of their big name players, what’s it going to take? Not a whole lot of attention has been given to free agency as the Dallas Cowboys are using their cap resources to re-sign their own stars. With DeMarcus Lawrence, Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott, and Byron Jones all needing new deals - the front office has a lot of big decisions to make. Most of these players will get a huge second contract and it’s very possible that all of them are with the team for years to come. But it’s also possible that one of these players will slip through...

Why the Dallas Cowboys are better off after re-signing Tavon Austin, letting Cole Beasley walk

Why the Dallas Cowboys are better off after re-signing Tavon Austin, letting Cole Beasley walk

Defogging the Cowboys' intentions is rarely easy, except on a football field, of course. And don't even get me started on Earl Thomas.But Tavon Austin instead of Cole Beasley? Let's look at the reasons besides money, the obvious place to start.Beasley was Dak Prescott's best bud, an asset to his development early. But his value diminished with the acquisition of Amari Cooper and drafting of Michael Gallup. Cooper can do everything Beasley does, and he's bigger, faster and stronger. Gallup's development over the second half of his rookie season also made him a more viable target.The Cowboys...

Film Room: Witten’s return could mean more critical connections between him and Prescott

Film Room: Witten’s return could mean more critical connections between him and Prescott

While Jason Witten won’t spend as much time on the field, we could see more great plays like we did in seasons past. In this chapter of Film Room, we’re diving into the archives of tight end Jason Witten. The Cowboys offense came into 2018 without two of its long-time fixtures in wide receiver Dez Bryant and tight end Jason Witten. They managed to replace Bryant by trading for Amari Cooper midseason, but the loss of Witten was still felt. Despite his age, Jason Witten coming out of retirement could be huge for Dak Prescott and the Cowboys offense. This is particularly true with wide...

Cowboys were reportedly on Odell Beckham Jr.’s list of preferred trade destinations

Cowboys were reportedly on Odell Beckham Jr.’s list of preferred trade destinations

OBJ and Amari Cooper on the same team? Last season the Cowboys risked it all when they traded a first-round draft pick for Amari Cooper. The move saved their season, plus likely a lot of jobs, and they look to have one of the game’s best receivers on their team now. That’s a good get. Receivers have been changing teams a lot as of lately. Obviously Cooper went from Oakland to Dallas, recently Antonio Brown went from Pittsburgh to Oakland, and just Tuesday night Odell Beckham Jr. went from New York to Cleveland. That’s a lot of quarterbacks feeling both sad and happy. Speaking of...

SportsDay's top 25 athletes 25-and-under: Which rising star takes the top spot?

The D-FW area has no shortage of elite young athletes. Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has led the NFL in rushing multiple times in his young career. Mavericks PG Luka Doncic is a near lock to grab NBA Rookie of the Year honors this season. Dallas native Jordan Spieth became the second-youngest golfer to ever reach World No. 1 status in 2015. Outside of their Dallas ties, those three all have something in common: they're all 25 years old or younger.When you factor in other rising stars -- like Amari Cooper, Kristaps Porzingis, Dak Prescott and Miro Heiskanen -- and a number of current or...

The soft opening to free agency has unfolded the way of recent years for Dallas.Other teams in the division spend money and make bold moves two days before anything becomes official. Consternation builds among Cowboys fans who question the wisdom of their club’s conservative approach and fear the team will be left behind.What has taken place so far has implications for the Cowboys ability to land Earl Thomas, retain Cole Beasley and sign Amari Cooper to an extension. Those developments, and more, remain unresolved heading into Tuesday.Let’s start with the Cowboys pursuit of Thomas, a...

How the Antonio Brown trade could increase the cost of re-signing Amari Cooper

How the Antonio Brown trade could increase the cost of re-signing Amari Cooper

The wide receiver market just got an unexpected jump. The Oakland Raiders have their new receiver. And by new, we mean the 30-year-old, four-time All-Pro, Antonio Brown. Last October they dealt away Amari Cooper for a first-round draft pick from the Cowboys. At first, Cowboys fans scoffed at the steep price, but 53 catches, 725 yards, and six touchdowns later - we were all on board with it. He’s worth a first. For the Raiders, they swap out the 24-year-old Cooper for one of the league’s best wide receivers over the last eight years. And in half of those years, Brown’s had 1,500+ yard...

Cowboys 2019 draft prospect: Nebraska receiver Stanley Morgan Jr

Looking at a receiver that the Cowboys could target in April. We are back again with another draft prospect to know, as the 2019 NFL Draft is just around the corner. We looked at Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell the other day. The speedster has the athletic ability to develop into a weapon on the next level. The Cowboys did add Amari Cooper during the season, but you can never add too many weapons to the offense. Dak Prescott is looking to take the next step as a franchise quarterback, and adding more weapons to his arsenal can be very helpful in his development. Today, we will...

Free agency focus: If Cowboys lose Cole Beasley, will they find value on open market?

The Cowboys hope it works out with Cole Beasley but what if it doesn’t work out? Stephen Jones has made it fairly clear that he would love to keep Cole Beasley with the Dallas Cowboys. Cole Beasley has been one of the better slot receivers in the NFL over the course of his career. He also happens to be one the best third-down options in the league along with teammate Amari Cooper. Cole Beasley has been very communicative on social media that he would like to remain in Dallas but would like an increased role along with a significant increase in salary. With an overstocked checklist of...
