The Cowboys actually have a solid WR group.
The upcoming season will be a unique test for the Dallas Cowboys. We will find out if their unyielding faith in their own guys can produce favorable results after losing some keep players this offseason. One of their biggest moves this year was trading away Amari Cooper and getting out of the final three seasons of his five-year, $100 million contract he signed in 2020.
With no Cooper, the Cowboys are going a different route when it comes to how they want to construct their wide receiving position group. For example, instead of continuing to pay Amari Cooper $20 million per season, they prefer to roll with:
2020 first-round draft pick CeeDee Lamb entering his third season
26-year-old Michael Gallup on a five-year, $57.5 million extension
South Alabama receiving star Jalen Tolbert with their 2022 third-round pick
Veteran James Washington on a one-year, $1.2 million free agent deal
