BREAKING: Cowboys sign WR T.Y. Hilton to a one-year deal

Everyone pause what you're doing and listen because the have finally signed a . According to Cowboys reporter Michael Gehlken, the team is signing former long-time Colts wideout T.Y. Hilton to a one-year deal.

While it may not be the receiver that fans wanted, Hilton brings veteran experience and adds a bit of explosiveness to the WR room. Also, for those curious about if the franchise will still pursue OBJ or why they chose Hilton over him, NFL Insider Josina Anderson has your answer below.

Shifting away from the Odell talk and focusing on Hilton, fans should expect the wideout to contribute off-the-bat. While his stats from last season could signal “he's washed,” Hilton is a player that won't have a huge learning curve, and his lofty resume speaks for itself.

Five 1,000-yard seasons and 9,691 career yards later, Hilton will come in as the team's most experienced wideout and serve as a great mentor for the young Cowboys WR corps.

Also, I fully expect him to get easy looks, as teams will have to pick their poison on if they give more attention to him, WRs and , or TE .

It's a win-win for everyone.

Finishing off, the most interesting aspect about this signing is what the team will do with WR , who recently returned this past week. Whether they slide Washington into that WR4 role or cut him, a move is bound to happen with the wideouts.

Add that the team has and on the roster — things might get weird in the wideout room. Also, based on the above, it looks like the team may still add Odell, but there is no timeline on when that may materialize.

For now, welcome to the Cowboys, T.Y.

This is a big pickup for the Cowboys offense. Now if only KNUCKLE HEAD Kellen Moore will utilize him properly. This is a veteran wide receiver that’s got to be involved in the offense. Moore has weapons that he either refuses to utilize or doesn’t use them effectively. There’s no lack of talent on the offensive side of the ball in Dallas, but their is an Offensive Coordinator that lives on INEPT STREET and doesn’t plan on moving in the foreseeable future. Such a pity for a good team to be saddled with an IDIOT like Moore.


The only idiot is you my friend. Look at the stats and W/L record. Without Moore this team may have. 5 wins. Don’t judge Moore by Daks failures. Judge Moore by Cowboys record and total offense. Like I said you are an idiot if you think there are many OCs out there better than Moore.


Let’s not forget that Dak plays a huge role in the ineptness of the office. A qb with his tenure should not be throwing interceptions at the rate he’s throwing. Although he wants to be in the elite conversation- he really isn’t.
