Dak Prescott Jersey

Today, we look at wide receivers.A lot of talk has been centered around how the Cowboys are going to pay their stars that are up for new contracts, most notably quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper. Dak will command at least $30 million, while Cooper himself is also hoping to cash in on a big pay day for his efforts. Right now though, the two are under contract for the 2019 season, which is the good news.Prescott and Cooper built a strong connection over the second half of the season, especially against the likes of divisional rivals Philadelphia and Washington. Cooper is not the only receiver that has built a strong rapport with Prescott. Michael Gallup showed flashes of his potential over the course of his rookie season. He will be needed to take the next step in order to replace some of Cole Beasley’s production.Dallas also addressed Cole’s absence through free agency, inking a deal with veteran slot Randall Cobb — who they hope will be an immediate impact player. How does this position look heading into 2019?Amari CooperThe midseason trade for Amari Cooper appears to be one of the best moves that Jerry Jones has ever made. While the price of a first-round pick was a little high at the time, it proved to be worth it. Cooper changed the Cowboys from a team likely picking inside the top-15 to a playoff team that lost the round before Championship Sunday.Amari opened things up for the entire offense from the moment that he arrived, providing Dak Prescott with a legitimate weapon through the air while forcing defenses to think twice about committing to a full box to stop Ezekiel Elliott. Games versus Washington on Thanksgiving (8 catches, 180 yards, 2 touchdowns) and Philadelphia in December (10, 217, 3) showed us the former top-five overall pick can completely take over games.There are reports suggesting that Cooper wants to be paid like the talent he is, and he certainly has an argument for that. For now though, the Cowboys are hoping that their star receiver picks up where he left off this upcoming season.Michael GallupCooper grew into a big-time target for Dak, but Michael Gallup had himself a solid season as well. The rookie turned it on as he grew more comfortable on the professional level, using his speed to get by opposing defensive backs. The connection between Prescott and Gallup was not always there, but when the two hit, it usually went for a big gain.Gallup’s best performance of the season came in D.C. during the last game before Dallas traded for Amari Michael Gallup Jersey , as the Colorado State Rams product hauled in three catches for 81 yards, including a 49-yard touchdown grab.With another offseason under his belt, along with better chemistry with his quarterback, Gallup has an opportunity to make a jump in his second season.Randall CobbCole Beasley is off to Buffalo, but Randall Cobb is here. Cobb, the veteran receiver that spent his entire career in Green Bay, signed a one-year, $5 million deal and will look to take over in the slot this season.Cobb has battled injuries throughout his career, specifically concerning hamstrings and concussions. Still though, Cobb is a player that can be productive when on the field and brings valuable experience to a young locker room.It looks like Cooper and Gallup will be the two primary options in the passing game, but the 29-year old has a chance to be a contributor for Prescott. Here is what he was able to do in week one last season:Dallas is banking on Cobb replacing at least some of Beasley’s production in the slot. If he can stay healthy, Cobb has a real chance of doing just that.Allen HurnsAllen Hurns was the “big” receiver signing last offseason, as the Cowboys lured him away from the Jaguars in hopes of him finding his 2015 form in which he put together a 1,031-yard, 10-touchdown campaign in Jacksonville.However, Hurns struggled adjusting in Dallas, and failed to eclipse 30 yards receiving until Week 7. In total, Hurns grabbed 20 passes for 295 yards and two scores. Some of that can be contributed to the lack of production from the offense as a whole prior to the move for Cooper, but he did not live up to some preseason expectations either.Dallas opted to pick up Hurns’ option for 2019. The big question mark surrounding Hurns heading into the season is how he recovers from a gruesome ankle injury versus the Seahawks in the playoffs. Tavon AustinTavon Austin is a versatile playmaker that can contribute in a number of ways — receiving game, run game, and on returns — partly why the Cowboys decided to trade for him last offseason.Austin had an up-and-down season with the Cowboys — some big moments, some questionable ones Womens Leighton Vander Esch Jersey , injuries, and some in between. Austin’s biggest play of the season with Dallas unquestionably came against the New York Giants in Week 2 when Dak hit him on a bomb:Austin is entering the final year of his deal, and the Dallas Cowboys drafted a player with a similar skill-set in Tony Pollard. What does this mean for Austin and his future in Dallas? That is a question, but the speedster should provide a quality playmaker for Kellen Moore to work with in 2019.Other receivers that will be battling for potential spots on the roster include 2018 sixth-round draft pick Cedrick Wilson, wideouts that have been on the roster previously in Noah Brown and Lance Lenoir, and 2019 undrafted free agents Jon’Vea Johnson (Toledo) and Jalen Guyton (North Texas).It is debatable where the Cowboys’ receivers rank in the NFC East, but it would be insane to argue that the position does not look much prettier right now than it did at this point last offseason. Amari Cooper has the tools to be a star in Dallas, Michael Gallup looks primed for a rookie-to-sophomore jump, and Randall Cobb is a veteran wideout that can still make plays in the slot.How do you feel about the Dallas Cowboys receivers, BTB? For a change, it may not just be all about Ezekiel Elliott." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteBlogging The BoysBlogging The Boys, a Dallas Cowboys fan communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsLibraryCowboysOddsShopAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsFiled under:Dallas Cowboys 2019 OTADallas Cowboys 2019 Training CampPost OTAs Cowboys position review: The running backsNew,64commentsFor a change, it may not just be all about Ezekiel Elliott.CDTShareTweetShareSharePost OTAs Cowboys position review: The running backsTim Heitman-USA TODAY SportsWith the wait for training camp under way, we’re taking a look at all the position groups for the Dallas Cowboys, with the focus on whether the team was successful in improving each during the offseason. You can find the link for the first one at the end of this article if you want to see what was said about the quarterbacks. This installment looks at the guys who normally line up nearest the QB, the running backs (including the fullback position).For the past three years, the story of the running back position has mostly been about Ezekiel Elliott. He has led the league in yards per game played every year since he was taken with the fourth overall pick in 2016. He is the focus of not just the running attack, but in Jason Garrett’s offense, he has been the motor that drives everything. So far he has delivered.However, there is quite a debate raging right now about the true value of running backs. Don’t get your dander up, because we aren’t going to get into all that here. But one thing that has emerged is that running back production is largely a volume stat. If you have a decent line and an offensive scheme that makes the running game effective Michael Gallup Jersey White , your back will get a lot of yards if you give him a lot of carries. Now, Elliott has been a real warhorse for the Cowboys. The only thing that has really stopped him for any length of time is the commissioner’s office. At the moment, there is no one better than him at his job.What can be said about his value is that he could be used much more efficiently than he was last season. We all became sick of seeing the Cowboys trot out a heavy set in a short yardage situation, only to have the opponent load up the box and stop Elliott for little or no gain. That is why it is possible that the expected changes under new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore may be just as important for the running game as they are for Dak Prescott and the passing attack. Perhaps even more so, if the hints of multiple formations, personnel packages, and pre-snap motion come to pass. So just looking at Elliott, there is good reason to think that the running game is stronger than it was last year. But there are other things that also should make this group better.First are the two new draftees, Tony Pollard and Mike Weber. Pollard has generated the most buzz of any draft pick, despite not being taken until the fourth round. But he is more than a typical running back. He is very fast and a true weapon as a receiver. In college, he was often split out to good effect. He can be a true “change of pace” back, filling a role the Cowboys have been trying to utilize since the days of Lance Dunbar and that they tried again with the trade last year for Tavon Austin. But Pollard is much more, because he can also be a very dangerous in the traditional role of going between the tackles or outside on sweeps. While we shouldn’t expect Ezekiel Elliott to see his workload cut much beyond the occasional series to rest up, as he has gotten in his first three years, we might see Pollard join him on the field. Don’t forget that Elliott is also a very capable receiver, and it would serve the team well to get him the ball in space more often. So one way Moore can throw a wrinkle out there would be to motion either Pollard or Elliott out wide, which could be used for either a run or a pass. He could also keep both in the backfield. Imagine an option run with Prescott having both a pitch man and a lead blocker.While we are on that subject, we need to bring fullback Jamize Olawale into the discussion, because he is believed to also have been very underutilized last season. He did show some real flashes as both a runner and a receiver in his earlier years with the Oakland Raiders. Just like with a package that gets both Elliott and Pollard on the field, better usage of the fullback could yield some good results. This again falls on Moore, who obviously has a lot riding on his performance. But fresh ideas and better play calls are what he was promoted to provide.Mike Weber has a tough challenge ahead of him, because he is likely competing with veteran Darius Jackson for the backup running back Dak Prescott Jersey , and in a recent article, listed Jackson as one of the ten biggest surprises of the OTAs. The Cowboys have a tendency to favor veteran players when the cut down comes at the end of camp, and if Jackson continues to shine he would have a big leg up on Weber. That may mean that the rookie is really fighting for a chance to make the practice squad, if there is no injury that forces things in a different direction. Given the low value that most teams place on running backs, and how plentiful the supply of veterans is each year, the odds are that Weber could be successfully stashed. There is one other name involved in the running backs, Jordan Chunn. He is often forgotten, as I did in an earlier piece looking at the overall depth of the current roster. He might wind up competing with Weber for a PS job, but would have to do something remarkable to have any shot at the 53.One other thing could mean that the running game is going to improve this year, and it was mentioned in the earlier QB article. The offensive line looks to be back on track to again be one of the best in the league. Obviously the quality of the blocking directly affects the performance of the backs, so that is another thing in the plus column.With Elliott back, things are solid, and the additions and possible tweaks to the scheme, the running back room is just like the quarterbacks. It looks stronger. There is still the lingering threat of a suspension for Elliott (deja vu all over again), but the team continues to be optimistic that is not in the offing. They felt that way in 2017, however, so we will hold our breath. But even if the worst does happen, the backups look much more capable this time around. This is another position group where the outlook is very positive. When you add some quality depth behind the best in the NFL, it should.Here is the link to the first part of this series.Quarterbacks
