3 Cowboys Players Who Will Have a “Breakout” 2018 Season

For the Dallas Cowboys to have a successful 2018 season they are going to need some of their young players step up and improve their game from a year ago. Keeping everyone healthy will be a huge help as well, but today I want to focus on a few players who I believe will have a breakout year this season.

In 2017 we saw DeMarcus Lawrence go from a player who a lot of Cowboys Nation was calling to get released, to a player who became one of the best at his position. It's rare to see someone take that kind of jump, but I don't think the Dallas Cowboys or their fans are complaining. The only real complaint I see now is how the Cowboys plan on keeping him around.

To say that Lawrence had a breakout 2017 season would be an understatement. He dominated all year and it's that kind of progress we are hoping from some of the Cowboys youngsters. But, who is ready to take that kind of jump?

Below I've identified three players who I believe are going to have breakout seasons in 2018.

Chidobe Awuzie

Chidobe Awuzie

Dallas Cowboys CB Chidobe Awuzie

Out of everybody on the Dallas Cowboys roster, I think Chidobe Awuzie is the most likely to have a breakout season like DeMarcus Lawrence did in 2017. Part of that has to do with the hiring of Kris Richard, who I believe will help him develop, but it mostly has to do with Awuzie's talent and how he performed as a rookie.

His rookie season didn't get off to the best start due to reoccurring injuries. He was only able to start six of 10 games and finished the year with 25 tackles, one forced fumble, and one interception. Not terrible numbers for a first year CB, but it could've been much better.

I believe with a full year in the Dallas Cowboys strength and conditioning program and a healthy offseason, Awuzie will without a doubt be the best cornerback on the roster. He has all the tools to succeed, now he just has to go out and prove it.

Hopefully changing from #33 to #24 doesn't jinx him. The 24 jersey hasn't been very kind to the last two CBs who wore it.

Xavier Woods

Xavier Woods

Dallas Cowboys S Xavier Woods

Out of the entire Dallas Cowboys 2017 draft class, Xavier Woods might have been the most impressive in his first year in the NFL. What makes it even more impressive is the fact that he was a sixth round draft pick, the 191st player selected. And I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to see him play this season.

As a rookie, Xavier Woods was used in a variety of roles in the Cowboys secondary and finished the season with 42 tackles and one interception. He played in all 16 games, but only started in for those contests.

I'm really expecting Xavier Woods to take a big jump in his second season with the Dallas Cowboys. I wouldn't be surprised if he is one of the starting safeties. A lot of people say that he's a little undersized to play the position, but he is almost exactly the same size as the safety everybody wants the Cowboys to trade for, Earl Thomas.

I believe if the Cowboys don't take a safety early in the 2018 NFL Draft it's probably because they like what they have in Xavier Woods.

Byron Jones

Byron Jones

Dallas Cowboys CB Byron Jones

I've actually been predicting a breakout season for Byron Jones these past several years, but unfortunately he hasn't really lived up to those aspirations just yet. I'm going to go out on a limb again and predict he finally proves why he was a first-round draft pick.

The Dallas Cowboys didn't do Byron Jones any favors by continuously having him play different positions in the secondary. I've always believed his best position was at CB, which is why am really excited the Cowboys are no longer going to play him at safety. He played safety out of necessity and has been average, but I think he will be an above average CB.

His size and athleticism should benefit him more at CB than it did at S. At safety he was asked to match up with bigger tight ends in coverage and was out physicaled from time to time, but I don't think that will happen when guarding receivers. I really think we will see a different player in 2018.

* Honorable Mention

Jaylon Smith - I thought about adding Jaylon Smith to the list due to his improved nerve regeneration in his knee/drop foot, but I think he had his breakout season last year. Hopefully he will be even better in 2018 though.

Jourdan Lewis - Jourdan Lewis is another player I contemplated adding to the list, but he is kind of being demoted a little bit and will likely be the Dallas Cowboys nickel cornerback in 2018. I'm still expecting big things from him.

Which Dallas Cowboys players do you think will have a breakout 2018 season?

    I believe it’s Taco. Only because of the rotation on that defensive line. If he doesn’t step up and compete, he want play.

    • RickRude85

      Won’t*** play

  • Chuck Wright

    Would be awesome. . . . .

  • Nick Russo

    I don’t think I could have written this any better. I agree with every aspect that you listed about these 3 players and I believe each of them will have big years. A lot of people I have conversation with are skeptical because the lack of “big names” in our secondary but I believe that as young as they are, they could surprise people as one of the better secondary units in the league. The big question for me is the other safety position and if heath and Frazier will split time there or if we look to add someone.
    My picks for breakout player are rod smith and Charles Tapper.
    Smith showed that he can be a suitable RB2 with his ability to run, block and catch the ball and look forward to see him continue the momentum he finished last season with.
    I’ve been high on Tapper since we picked him and although we signed Ealy, I think Tapper needs a chance to prove himself. He only played in two games last year but looked explosive off the edge getting a sack against the giants and getting a lot of pressure against Denver.

  • Will

    Taco, after coming on strong at the end, and with teams paying extra attention to Law, is going to break out. Ealy for the same reason. And I think Switz Is going to kick Beasley off the team as well with his breakout, Noah has a chance too. Who I personally want to see is a healthy Gathers. TE could be solved in house if he developes

  • Telvin Jones

    This list is lame. Now i know for a fact these people are no true cowboys fan. They listed 3DB. They calling a 2nd year player and a guy changing his position a breakout player. Hahaha smh. Lame

    • EverybodyTalks

      STILL – Waiting for your article that shares your awesome list of breakouts. Please share your wisdom, True Cowboy fan.

      • Telvin Jones

        How can a 2nd year player have a breakout season? From what? A rookie year? Really that’s what they do to these young players? Let these dudes grow!!! It is these same people who cry over every mistake playing coach but to stupid to understand player development. Now people have to start thinking good solid play is now a break out season which still needs to be determined? As in to be seen once the season starts.

        • EverybodyTalks

          Telvin – Still asking??? (I got what you were saying. No need to repeat.) So who do you see, if anyone. as having a breakout, this season?

          • Telvin Jones

            By design it’s is going to be a team effort. So no one person will shine week to week. Other then on offence I believe Dallas defense is systematic at best. Not even Shawn Lee can say he is a single dominate player. But in understanding the role asked to be played his measurements equate to a very solid piece to the puzzle.

    • John Williams

      What’s wrong with predicting 3 DBs and two second year players as the breakout candidates.

      Awuzie and Woods showed a lot in their rookie years to let us believe that they are on an ascending path. Jones is going into his fourth year now and has yet to hit his stride, mostly because he hasn’t found his best position yet.

      The DBs are the unit to watch for me this offseason and training camp. I’m really excited to see their progression as a unit.

      And I’m with Everybody Talks. Who are the guys you are expecting to breakout in 2018?

      • Telvin Jones

        Nothing but the fact of being a redundant subject. You can pick all you want to. Just don’t fall in love with your picks. I noticed a lot of people tend to place blinders over their eyes when it comes to picking who will do what before the season starts. I am the prove it type. With any other team we can have fun if it’s all about fun. With this team talk is cheap. For the cowboys it’s win or shut up.

        • John Williams

          We aren’t the players, so we can talk all we want. The players have to perform. We can just sit back and talk about it. It’s not like we are influencing the players anyway.

          That’s what we all read sites like Inside The Star for. Talk. We obviously don’t know what’s going to happen, but we offer our opinions on what we think will happen.

          Projecting a year two jump for Xavier Woods and Chidobe Awuzie is not out of the question. They were decent for much of their rookie seasons, but still have room to grow.

          I’m with Brian in thinking that the DB group is going to show the biggest year over year improvement of any unit on the team.

  • Mr. Jaguar

    Imo, Rico Gathers @ TE, and Kony Easley @ DE, my dark horse is the rookie wide receiver and Noah Brown, Allen Humes. Just my two cents worth

  • oneputter

    byron jones?! he is only getting in the way of the younger players. all this talk of him moving to corner to take who’s spot? he is no better than lewis, brown or awuzie…..these are our corners/slot.

    as stated previously time to move on and call a bust a bust….maybe he can be dealt during the draft.

    a breakout player….frazier!

  • Chet

    I like your list. I hope it is spot on, if it is we will have a much better defense this year. Irving had a good half of a year last year so I am going to make him my first break out player – he plays a full year and leads the team in sacks with 15 and is selected All Pro. My 2nd break out player is Collins – he gets 9 sacks and absolutely wrecks the opposing OL from the middle. My 3rd break out player is TE Rico Gathers – he catches 45 passes with 10 TD’s and becomes a really good blocking TE and cements his place as the future of the position for the Cowboys.

  • Tommy Davis

    Brian, the best cornerback on the Cowboys is Jourdan Lewis, he ranked as one of the top corners in the NFL, Awuzie has potential but he struggles in man coverage. If Lewis is being demoted a little as you say, that just validates what I’ve been saying about the Cowboys not playing the most talented players, that would be an absolutely rediculous move. Lewis covers receivers like a blanket, Awuzie attempts to make up for his inability to tightly cover receivers by trying to dislodge the ball after the catch. That tactic does not work too often in the NFL.

  • Telvin Jones

    After a player have a so called breakout year. What next? Typical white folks. When they have no where to turn they make shit up. No wonder the NFL is now fag football but Sams still got cut. Breakout??? When??? One year , two years? I get it. Until he is not breaking out NO more then y’all flake out on these players calling them names and put downs crying for them to be let go or traded. Because these so called owners or GMs are stupid enough to blame one guy that is suppose to be playing a team sport. No wonder they care about non sports related issues like being a role model or some sickly kid who make a wish to an imaginary figure. That still don’t make a player play better. Dallas is on a new trip. They so stupid they want their flunky fans talking about trash to sale trash Enstead of player development or recognizing when they have a good player on their team. What they do? They don’t just let their good players walk. They allow rival teams to pick out the players that leave. Some of these players get their revenge. Some of them go to other teams and help them win a super bowl. New age cowboys fans act as if it never happened and the cowboys owners and staff continue with the same bullshit game they call or run. When they win they will win until then enjoy a player that breaks out on a losing team. When you have nothing to demand for you except what ever trash they throw out. PS Jerry and the other staff members know Dak was the real cause behind the poor play. They using Dez to save Dak’s confidence until they get tired of his play. Then they will revile to him who they TRULLY are. Fired Jimmy and let D ware go to another team to get what he could not get in Dallas but yet they still proud? Smh if that don’t say it all. Dez should just leave he will help another team do what Dallas could not do. Win a championship. All that matters is another breakout player who will soon be leaving helping anther team win where Dallas always seem to lose. Let’s see who is more closer to the truth, me or you clowns?

Can WR Noah Brown be a Surprise Starter in 2018?

Could WR Noah Brown be a Surprise Starter in 2018?

With all of the new faces the Dallas Cowboys added to the wide receiver position it's easy to overlook someone like Noah Brown. Everyone is anxiously awaiting to find out what the "new toys" can do, but they tend to overlook an ascending player who's already on the roster. That is exactly what I believe Brown is in his second-year and why he could be a surprise starter in 2018.

Noah Brown didn't have a large offensive role as a rookie in 2017, but he did show flashes of a player whose arrow is trending upward. And now that the Cowboys have revamped pretty much the entire receiver position, Brown has a chance to climb the depth chart and become much more than just a role player.

Noah Brown

Dallas Cowboys WR Noah Brown

There is really no way of knowing exactly where and how the Dallas Cowboys plan to deploy their WRs this season. The only thing we really know right now is that Cole Beasley will once again be the slot WR. Everything else is completely up for grabs, which is why this could be the position battle to watch throughout the remainder of the offseason.

With Dez Bryant, Ryan Switzer, and quite possibly Terrance Williams all gone, someone is going to have to catch passes from Dak Prescott in 2018. Allen Hurns, who the Cowboys signed as a free agent, is expected to replace some of that lost production as either the X or Y WR. But, behind him there's a lot of unknown.

The third-round draft pick Michael Gallup has the skill set to also play either X or Y, and should be part of the equation as well. But, you never really know how these collegiate players will transition to the speed of the NFL.

That is why I believe Noah Brown has a real shot at becoming a starter this season. This is especially true with Terrance Williams recent off the field troubles. I kind of doubt he has a job much longer.

With Williams likely on his way out, Noah Brown moves up the depth chart. I believe he can immediately step in and replace #83's production in the passing game and as a blocker in the running game as well. We got a glimpse of him doing just that last season, which might be why he's getting first-team reps in organized team activities (OTA's).

Jon Machota on Twitter

Second-year WR Noah Brown got a ton of work with the first-team. Lance Lenoir did also

It's easy to forget, but Noah Brown was mostly utilized as a blocking WR/TE last season. At 6'2", 225, Brown is now the biggest and most physical receiver on the Cowboys roster. His blocking ability is what got him on the field as a rookie, but he's no slob in the passing game if given the chance.

Brown is already a solid route runner, but he has been working during the offseason with a WR Guru, David Robinson, to improve this area of his game.

David Robinson on Twitter

@dallascowboys NFL WR Noah Brown has been in the lab 🔬 grinding hard folks! Look out for this kid he is going to be dangerous!!! "Train Like A Pro" @BobbyBeltTX @BenRogers @1053thefan https://t.co/0cDY4BJJit

Now, I may be a little biased since I was a fan of Noah Brown's before the Cowboys drafted him. I actually had a fourth-round grade on him coming out of Ohio, so I was ecstatic Dallas was able to get him in the seventh.

But, despite my favoritism, I can really envision him becoming a surprise starter when the season opens up. He not only has the skill set to do it, but a year in the system could gives him an advantage over these new additions. It could of making all the difference.

Do you think WR Noah Brown be a surprise starter in 2018?

Creating a Monster: The Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line

John Williams

Published

on

Tyron Smith, Zack Martin, Travis Frederick, offensive line

After years of building, drafting, and retooling, the Dallas Cowboys have completed their offensive line. And in the process, they've created a monster. The addition of Connor Williams in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft has reasserted the Dallas Cowboys offensive line as the best in football -- and it may not be close.

The team has been on this path since 2011 to create an identity for their football team that starts up front on the offensive line.

What transpired in the 2009 and 2010 seasons had a lot to do with the direction the team has taken over the last 8 seasons to ensure they were great up front.

Wade Phillips, Jason Garrett

Former and Current Dallas Cowboys' Head Coaches Wade Phillips and Jason Garrett

The End of 2009

In 2009, the Dallas Cowboys won the NFC East and proceeded to win their wild card game to reach the divisional round for the second time in three years, only to be beaten by the Minnesota Vikings 34-3.

What transpired in that game should have been enough for the Cowboys to address their offensive line in the 2010 draft as quarterback Tony Romo was sacked six times and threw an interception.

On the season, Romo was sacked 34 times, which is more than twice a game. Perhaps the wins on the season and the division title masked the issues the team had up front.

The Debacle of the 2010 Season

The team had lofty expectations heading into 2010. They had been to the playoffs three of the previous four seasons and, despite the drubbing at the hands of the Vikings, were still a formidable offensive team with some star power on defense in DeMarcus Ware.

Unfortunately, it was never to be.

Tony Romo only started six games and was sacked seven times in that span. Cowboys quarterbacks were sacked a total of 31 times, which would be right outside the top ten for most sacks allowed in the NFL in 2010.

Tony Romo went 1-5 in his six starts that season, getting sacked seven times in those six games before giving way to Jon Kitna and Stephen McGee for the final ten games of the season.

Head Coach Wade Phillips was replaced by Offensive Coordinator Jason Garrett after a 1-7 start that culminated in an embarrassing loss to the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

More Than a Coach Was Changed

Cowboys Headlines - Cowboys on the Clock: Tyron Smith, #9 Overall

Dallas Cowboys T Tyron Smith (Tom Fox/The Dallas Morning News)

The change in coaching signaled a change in philosophy from a 3-4 defensive minded head coach to an offensive one who was rooted in the glory days of the Dallas Cowboys of the 90's.

Those teams were known for their elite offensive line play that set the tone for the rest of the team. They protected Troy Aikman, who is in the Hall of Fame, and paved the way for the NFL's All-Time leading rusher, Emmitt Smith.

The impact that the offensive line had on the Cowboys teams of the 90's can't be understated.

So in 2011, Jason Garrett's first NFL Draft as the Dallas Cowboys head coach, he convinced Owner and General Manager Jerry Jones that they needed to do more to protect their most valuable asset (Tony Romo) while becoming a team that could run the ball and control the clock.

With the ninth overall pick in the 2011 draft, the Dallas Cowboys selected Tackle Tyron Smith.

That selection was history making. It was the first time in the Jerry Jones era that they had spent a first round pick on an offensive lineman. A span of more than 20 years saw the Dallas Cowboys never invest a first in the offensive line.

Mission Accomplished

With the selections of Travis Frederick and Zack Martin in the first rounds of the 2013 and 2014 NFL Drafts, the Dallas Cowboys offensive line was complete.

Jason Garrett's work to make the Dallas Cowboys in the image of the Super Bowl glory days of the 90's finally came to fruition.

The Dallas Cowboys offensive line led the way for Running Back DeMarco Murray to lead the NFL in rushing. They protected Tony Romo to have the best season of his career, leading the NFL with a passer rating of 113.2.

Everything looked to be coming together for a team that went 12-4, won the NFC East, and beat some notable teams like the Seattle Seahawks along the way.

Then the "Dez Caught It" moment happened and we all came crashing back to Earth.

That season, though it didn't end in a Lombardi Trophy, was still a success as it created a template that could be successful in the NFL. As teams attempt to spread out their formations to throw the ball, the Dallas Cowboys, while still using a lot of 11-personnel, showed the NFL that you can still be a run-first, physical football team and win.

With the template set, all the Dallas Cowboys have to do is to continue to retool.

Creating a Monster

Let's review how the Dallas Cowboys have collected this impressive group of humans to block for their football team.

  • Tyron Smith was the ninth overall pick in the 2011 draft. Though he started out as a right tackle his rookie season, he made the move to the left side in his second year and has been considered one of the best tackles in the NFL since. Back issues have slowed him down, but he's still in his prime heading into his eighth (!!!) NFL Season.
  • Travis Frederick was the 31st pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. A lot of the draft analysts around the league believed that to be a reach at the time when the Dallas Cowboys traded back to 31 to select Frederick. They don't think it's a reach now.
  • In 2014 the Dallas Cowboys, yet again, selected an offensive lineman in the first round of the NFL Draft. It was widely reported that if Ryan Shazier would have been there at pick 16, that he would have been the selection. Shazier's been a great player in the league, but I'm actually glad that they got Martin. He's considered the best guard in the NFL and will probably be so for the next ten years.
  • Right Tackle La'el Collins would have been a first round draft pick had his name not been attached to the murder of his ex-girlfriend. Instead of being a first round draft pick, the Dallas Cowboys, led by GM Jerry Jones, wined and dined Collins into signing a pretty nice deal for a UDFA. After rotating with Leary for a couple of seasons, he's now the RT for the best offensive line in football.

That brings us to the newest addition of what has been coined The OLuminati. 

Heading into the 2018 NFL Draft, the whole world knew -- or hoped -- the Dallas Cowboys would address the left guard spot early on. When the first round came and went, most of us, including this writer, thought they'd likely have to trade up in the second to still come away with a plug and play guard at pick number 50.

So when they landed Connor Williams while staying put at 50, Cowboys Nation erupted with joy.

Connor Williams is strong enough to play on the interior but comes with the movement and flexibility to get to the perimeter and the second level. Though he was good last year, Jonathan Cooper was the weak link because of his movement limitations.

Strike First, Strike Hard, No Mercy

I just watched season one of the YouTube Red production Cobra Kai, which follows the lives of The Karate Kid's main characters Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence as adults.

Johnny, broke as a joke, relaunched the Cobra Kai karate brand based on the philosophy, "Strike First, Strike Hard, No Mercy." While it's a harsh philosophy to be teaching a bunch of teenagers, it certainly has its place with the Dallas Cowboys offensive line.

This group has the attitude and the ability to ruin days for opposing defenses. They aren't just going to get in your way, they're going to hit you and go through you.

This group of lineman has no weaknesses and if we talk about the signing of Cam Fleming, now you have a guy that played tackle for the New England Patriots during the Super Bowl as your tackle off the bench if you need him.

No weaknesses.

The Dallas Cowboys are going to be able to run inside and outside and to both sides of the offensive line with regularity because of the strength, physicality, and movement ability of their starting five. Opposing defenses aren't going to be able to load up on one side of the line because of a perceived weakness on the other side.

With Ezekiel Elliott running behind them, who's shown the ability to stretch a play outside and make a big run or find a crease in the middle of the line for a huge play, this is the Dallas Cowboys running game that Jason Garrett has been looking for since he took over in 2011.

While they've had success in the past, I have huge expectations for this group in 2018. 1,600 rushing yards for Elliott if he plays 16 games should be the floor. There's no reason he shouldn't flirt with a 2,000 yard season.

Now, whether that leads to a Super Bowl Championship remains to be seen, but we've seen in the past that when the Dallas Cowboys have success in the run game, it usually leads to wins, and lots of them.

Cowboys en Español: ¿Qué Pasará con el WR Terrance Williams?

Mauricio Rodriguez

Takeaway Tuesday: What We Learned From Cowboys Loss To Packers
AP Photo / Ron Jenkins

El receptor de los Dallas Cowboys Terrance Williams tiene una tarea difícil durante este offseason: mantenerse en el roster del equipo. El sábado pasado , Williams hizo de esa (relativamente sencilla) tarea, un reto mucho más difícil. El receptor fue llevado a la cárcel bajo cargos de intoxicación pública después de que la policía encontró su Lamborghini estrellado con un poste y abandonado.

Después de salir bajo una fianza de $369 dólares, T-Will está bajo investigación y enfrentando un futuro muy incierto en su carrera en la NFL.

A pesar de despedirse de Dez Bryant en abril, el cuarto de los receptores está repleto de jugadores listos para competir por puestos en el roster. Williams, quien no ha podido practicar debido a su lesión en el pie, no estaba en una buena posición para competir por su puesto antes del incidente.

Ahora, con una posible suspensión de por medio, la administración seguramente considerara despedirse del receptor de cinco años.

Vaya que Williams no es indispensable. Durante el Draft, los Cowboys seleccionaron a los wide receivers Michael Gallup (Colorado State) y  Cedrick Wilson (Boise State). Semanas antes, el ex-Jaguar Allen Hurns llegó a Dallas. Eso sin mencionar a Cole Beasley y a un puñado de receptores jóvenes como Noah Brown y Lance Lenoir quien han volteado cabezas en los entrenamientos.

Francamente, no es nada descabellado pensar que aún sin el incidente, Williams no estaría entre los tres titulares en la semana uno. Para Dallas, una ofensiva con Gallup, Hurns y Beasley como titulares podría resultar muy efectiva.

A pesar de destellos por aquí y por allá, Williams no ha podido demostrar una consistencia que avale su titularidad. Una semana hace una recepción increíble, a la siguiente es incapaz de salirse del campo para parar el reloj o para utilizar sus manos a la hora de atrapar el balón.

Eso sin mencionar que cuando se le pidió ponerse en los zapatos de Dez cuando este estaba lesionado en el 2015, Williams no pudo hacerlo. Tal fue el caso, que cuando Bryant volvió a caer en el 2016, Brice Butler tomó su lugar.

Tanto Gallup como Hurns pueden ser receptores "X." Williams, lamentablemente, no.

¿El defecto de una ofensiva sin Williams? Sinceramente, lo único que podría salir mal para los Cowboys si se deshacen del veterano, es que Dak Prescott perderá a tres de sus objetivos que ha tenido en su carrera en una sola temporada: Bryant, Witten y Williams.

Sin embargo, todas las contrataciones de nuevos WRs se han realizado para construir la ofensiva amigable para Dak, ¿no es así? Cowboys Nation debe confiar en el plan de la administración.

Incluso antes de ser arrestado, Terrance Williams estaba en Dallas simplemente por su contrato. Por ser apenas su segundo año, para los Vaqueros (desde un punto de vista financiero) no es viable cortar al receptor.

Una suspensión de la NFL podría hacer las cosas un poco más sencillas, pues si está suspendido, el equipo puede olvidarse del dinero garantizado y decirle adiós sin dudarlo. La NFL no ha mostrado ser muy consistente a la hora de asignar suspensiones, pero cualquiera que haya escuchado las declaraciones de Williams y visto el video imagina que una suspensión llegará inevitablemente.

Si es suspendido, Williams seguramente no vestirá la estrella en el 2018. De otra manera, las cosas se complican. Pero si el equipo llega a un punto en el que no están interesados en traer a nadie al equipo y no están preocupados por el tope salarial de la temporada, no veo porque se quedarían con él si prefieren utilizar el puesto de roster en cualquier otro jugador.

Terrance Williams tenía una oportunidad de oro para competir por la titularidad tras la partida de Dez Bryant. Lamentablemente, parece que soltó el último balón que pudo haber soltado.

¿Crees que Williams esté en el equipo este 2018?
