3 More Games Could be the Last for These Dallas Cowboys Players

Like it or not, the season is coming to an end sooner rather than later. They still have three regular-season games to play and quite possibly a playoff game, but more than that is probably too much to ask for based on the way they played this year. That means we could be saying goodbye to several members of this year's team.

Believe it or not, but the Dallas Cowboys have a lot of players under expiring contracts right now. They will have a lot of tough decisions to make as to who to try to retain and who to let go this offseason, and that extends beyond just Quarterback and Amari Cooper. Don't believe me… Take a look for yourself.

Luckily for you, I've already done the dirty work and conveniently arranged some the more important potential Dallas Cowboys by position.


Dak Prescott, Cooper Rush

are Dak Prescott will receive a long-term from the Dallas Cowboys this offseason, but a new head coach could have a lot to say about that. The new HC may prefer someone else, but that's unknown right now. What is known is becomes a free agent after the season and there's a very real possibility Dallas looks elsewhere for their backup QB in 2020.

Wide Receiver

Amari Cooper, Randall Cobb, Tavon Austin

Amari Cooper could find himself in the same kind of situation as Dak Prescott. The new HC might not want to offer him a contract extension, but again that's unknown. and other hand should and probably will become free agents. A case can be made to try to bring Cobb back, but it would probably wiser and cheaper to go with a younger option. There's absolutely no reason to bring Austin back though. He's been a nonfactor in 2019.

Tight End

Jason Witten, Blake Jarwin

Jason Witten's return from retirement actually ended up going better than I thought, but I think it's time for him to finally hang up his cleats for good. With a new regime coming in the aging, future Hall of Fame TE may no longer be in the cards. The same could be said for , who like Witten, is set to become a free agent after the season. Finding upgrades at TE could be a top priority this offseason.

Offensive Line

Cameron Fleming, Joe Looney, Adam Redmond

Fortunately, the Dallas Cowboys starting offensive line should remain intact for the next several years, but the depth behind them could take a pretty big hit after this season. Cameron Fleming, , and Adam Redmond are all set to hit free agency after the season and it's hard to imagine anyone returning. Looney and Fleming have served their purposes as replacements, but it may be time for the Cowboys to find younger and cheaper options.

  • Correction: Cameron Fleming is signed through 2020

Defensive Line

Robert Quinn, Michael Bennett, Maliek Collins, Antwaun Woods

The Dallas Cowboys have a lot of pending free agents along the who could depart after the season in free agency. Right now it's hard to imagine anyone of the four mentioned above returning considering the money they could make elsewhere, but Antwaun Woods could likely be retained cheaply. For me, upgrading the DL this offseason is quite possibly the top priority.


Sean Lee, Joe Thomas

It looks like the Dallas Cowboys could have some serious depth issues at the position with and set to become free agents after the . It's even more concerning considering 's neck injury that has sidelined him for a few games this season and could end up landing him on . General Lee has had his fair share of injuries and it looks as if LVE could be following in his footsteps. This may be an underrated priority in the offseason.


Byron Jones, Anthony Brown

Like defensive line, the position could see some key members leave via free agency after the 2019 season. Both and are set to become free agents and could find better opportunities/more money elsewhere. Re- one of the two, hopefully Byron Jones, could help in the long term since both and Jourdan Lewis become free agents next year. If upgrading the DL isn't the Cowboys top offseason priority, CB is.


Jeff Heath, Darian Thompson, Kavon Frazier

The Dallas Cowboys relied on both and Darian Thompson to start opposite at strong in 2019, but both are set to become free agents after the season as well. There is hope former Texas A&M safety Donovan Wilson can take over in his second-year, but that shouldn't stop them from trying to upgrade the position via free agency or the draft this offseason.

Special Teams

L.P. Ladouceur, Kai Forbath

The Dallas Cowboys special teams core could look quite a bit different in 2020 with L.P. Ladouceur and Brett Maher's replacement set to become free agents after the completion of the 2019 season. At 38, Ladouceur could be enticed to come back on another one-year deal, but that remains to be seen. As for , the Cowboys absolutely need to find an upgrade there. They can't afford to make another Maher kind of mistake.
