4 trades that could make the Cowboys contenders in 2022
The Dallas Cowboys offseason for many, myself included, was lackluster to say the least. We should be used to that, but every offseason we hope for the best from the front office. Now, with the 2022 NFL Draft over and camps starting around the league, the Cowboys have all of a sudden received an influx of money thanks to the cut designation after June 1 for former right tackle La ‘el Collins.
We should assume the Dallas front office is going to use that money for their current players instead of bringing in talent that can help this team immediately. But, let’s say Jerry and Stephen Jones actually decide to spend the money on players outside of their current roster. This could help them secure not only free agents, but also players who are already established and currently on rosters showing the value they currently have.
There are still a few moves the front office can make to really help solidify this 2022 roster. Here are some options the Joneses should consider.
4 trades the Dallas Cowboys could make to become strong contenders in 2022
4. Jalen Reagor, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
This Dallas offense is in serious need of speed at receiver. In Week 1, they’ll already be without acrobat Michael Gallup, and he wasn’t exactly the fastest receiver in the league. This WR body would greatly benefit from adding speed to the position and one of the best candidates for this role would be a Texan turned Philadelphia Eagle in Jalen Reagor.
The former TCU Horned Frog just wasn’t able to put things together in Philadelphia. Perhaps a change of scenery and a return home would greatly benefit him and the Cowboys. His presence could also allow the attack to expand the field further to open up their running game.
Speed is something you can’t teach and Reagor has plenty of it. He had some problems with football, but it’s something that box be taught. Another advantage is that he already knows what defenses look like in the league, especially in the NFC East, so his transition will really depend on how quickly he can learn the playbook.
