Cowboys trade targets: Should Dallas trade for Bengals TE Tyler Eifert?

Cowboys trade targets: Should Dallas trade for Bengals TE Tyler Eifert?

Is trading for a veteran TE just a pipe dream or a realistic option for Dallas? As it stands now, the Cowboys tight ends have combined for nine receptions, 94 yards, and 0 touchdowns in their NFL careers. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that’s bad, very bad. Part of the reason why the Cowboys tight ends don’t have a long list of stats is the fact that out of the four tight ends slated to compete for the 53-man roster only two have been active in a regular season game. That tidbit was supposed to make you feel better, but it may have made you feel even worse about the tight end...

Ezekiel Elliott’s quiet offseason is exactly what the Cowboys needed out of their star running back

Ezekiel Elliott’s quiet offseason is exactly what the Cowboys needed out of their star running back

Ezekiel Elliott’s offseason has been eerily quiet. That is exactly what the Cowboys needed after last year’s roller coaster of a season. Entering the league as the fourth-overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, running back Ezekiel Elliott was one hot commodity. The entire state of Texas saw a young star blossom and he really took the entire league by storm. In his first year in the league, Elliott led the NFL in rushing with 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns. Elliott’s 2016 season was one of the most dominant performances from a first-year running back the league has ever seen. In 2017,...

Cowboys defense has potential to be one of the better units in the NFL

Cowboys defense has potential to be one of the better units in the NFL

After a positive end to the 2017 season, the Cowboys defense is set to take another major step forward in 2018. For years it’s been the same old song and dance. The Cowboys offense will be the engine that makes the car drive, and the Cowboys defense just needs to be good enough to keep them in games. Entering the 2018 season, the roles may have flipped. The Cowboys offense is still expected to be plenty good, but the Cowboys defense may be the driving force behind the success of the team. In 2017, the Cowboys defense was a roller coaster of a unit. At times, they looked to be one of the...

Cowboys receiver Michael Gallup just might be the next Stefon Diggs

Cowboys receiver Michael Gallup just might be the next Stefon Diggs

The Cowboys spent a majority of the offseason looking for players to step up at the receiver position. Third-round pick Michael Gallup might be the guy. It’s been a little less than three months since the Cowboys spent the 81st overall pick on former Colorado State wide receiver, Michael Gallup. In about three weeks the Cowboys will be heading to Oxnard for training camp providing Gallup his first chance to show his skill-set off to the Cowboys coaching staff. During the NFL Draft process, Gallup was looked at as one of the top receivers in the class by many, but he fell to the Cowboys in...

Cowboys news: Three reasons why Dak Prescott will be better in 2018

Check out the latest and greatest news surrounding America’s team! Don't sleep on Dak Prescott in 2018 - Bucky Brooks, NFL.comBrooks offers three reasons why Dak Prescott will be better in 2018 than he was in 2017. I find it interesting that so many skeptics question whether Prescott can guide the Dallas Cowboys' offense without a real WR1 on the field. I've previously outlined why the offense will function just fine without Dez Bryant and Jason Witten, but I really believe Prescott is capable of doing some Tom Brady-like things in 2018, thanks to his increased comfort level with...

Cowboys have highest-paid defensive end unit in the NFL

Cowboys have highest-paid defensive end unit in the NFL

After a very impressive year from the Cowboys defensive ends, it’s worth a look at how they stacked up against the salary cap of other teams because you get surprising results. Heading into the 2017 season, there were still plenty of question marks surrounding the Dallas Cowboys pass rushers. After just a few weeks into the season, it was easy to see that they were going to be just fine at defensive end. DeMarcus Lawrence was playing like an All-Pro and Tyrone Crawford was still providing quality play. The hype surrounding first-round pick Taco Charlton wasn’t being met yet, but the...

Should the Cowboys consider signing DT Johnathan Hankins after Irving suspension, Collins injury?

Should the Cowboys consider signing DT Johnathan Hankins after Irving suspension, Collins injury?

With injuries to the two starting defensive tackles that will likely hold Maliek Collins out of training camp, and David Irving out the first four weeks, should the Cowboys visit the idea of signing Johnathan Hankins? The Cowboys are a little more than three weeks away until they head to Oxnard, California for training camp. For the first time in what seems like forever, the team is relatively healthy heading into camp. In recent years it seemed as if notable players were rehabbing from offseason surgeries, or were working back from lingering injuries from last season, OTA’s, or mandatory...

Could Danielle Hunter’s extension impact Cowboys and DeMarcus Lawrence contract talks?

With Vikings’ DE Danielle Hunter signing a big extension, how could that impact DeMarcus Lawrence and the Cowboys contract talks?

Tough defensive opponents will test Cowboys new look offense often in 2018

Tough defensive opponents will test Cowboys new look offense often in 2018

After many new faces were added this offseason, the Cowboys new look offense will face plenty of tough defenses in 2018. For years it has been a common theme around Dallas that the Cowboys offense has been the better unit between the two. With weapons like Ezekiel Elliott, Dez Bryant, Dak Prescott, Jason Witten, Cole Beasley, and one of the best offensive lines in football, there was little to no worry that the offense could do more than enough to get the team into the playoffs. Heading into the 2018 season, with the changes in personnel, there is some doubt about that side of the...
