After cutting Dallas Cowboys All-Time touchdown receptions leader, Dez Bryant, the Cowboys now free up $8.5 million in cap space for the 2018 season.
Now the Dallas Cowboys need to address what is now a weak point for the team. The team needs to find a game changer deep threat wide receiver either in the draft or through free agency.
There are a lot of young talented receivers in the draft that could instantly help the Cowboys with their wide receiver problem. A name that comes to mind is Calvin Ridley from Alabama. Ridley had 63 receptions, 967 receiving yards, and five receiving touchdowns with the run-happy Alabama offense this past season.
Another potential wide receiver candidate in the draft is Maryland star wide receiver, DJ Moore. Moore had 80 receptions, 1033 receiving yards, and 8 receiving touchdowns. He could be the deep threat Dallas desperately needs.
Dallas should also look at star Texas A&M wide receiver Christian Kirk. Kirk had 71 receptions, 919 receiving yards, and 10 receiving touchdowns this past season.
Some key wide receiver free agents that are still available, if they can stay healthy, are Eric Decker and Jeremy Maclin.
Eric Decker had a decent season in his one year deal with the Tennessee Titans. Decker did pretty well to be a third option for the young and talented Titans’ team. Decker finished this past season, with 54 receptions, 563 receiving yards, and one touchdown reception.
Jeremy Maclin, once a star wide receiver before the injuries, can easily return to stardom if he can stay healthy. Maclin played this past season with the Baltimore Ravens, where he had 40 receptions, 440 receiving yards, and three touchdowns.
The Cowboys have several options to replace Dez Bryant. We will soon find out what option they choose.
