Cowboys Free Agent WR Cedrick Wilson Signing w/ Dolphins

The Cowboys is currently much weaker than in recent years. Two days after Dallas traded to the , it's now reported that will be with the when officially opens on Wednesday.

Today was the start of the NFL's stupidly named “legal tampering” period. Teams are allowed to negotiate with impending and agree to deal but nothing is officially signed until after 4:00pm EST on March 16th.

In four seasons since Dallas made him a 6th-Round pick, Wilson has risen into a valuable offensive roleplayer and special teamer. He's only missed one game the last two years, starting four in 2021, and has proven his reliability as a receiver and even throwing the occasional pass.

While Cooper and Wilson will be hard to replace, Dallas has at least re-signed Michael Gallup and still have 2-3 years left on 's rookie deal. They also recently extended 's contract to keep one experienced depth option around.

Although Lamb and Gallup are the obvious starters at receiver going forward, filling that WR3 role is now one of the Cowboys key goals. With Brown being more of a bottom-tier depth and guy, finding a true for the becomes paramount.

Hopefully the Cowboys are able to find more valuable late-round gems like Cedrick Wilson in the upcoming draft.

I would have kept Wilson over Gallup. I think he had better chemistry with Dak and was looking very explosive in the opportunities he got. Now they have thrown 30 million dollars in guaranteed money at a declining D Law. Craziness.

I agree. Would prefer a healthy Wilson over Gallup, who will likely not be right till mid season if even then. Guess the cowboys didn’t see CW as a legit #2. Would have been a risk, but could have freed up money to shore other positions.


Same here. Wilson brings a lot more versatility to the table than Gallup. Plus, he’s not rehabbing from an ACL. Not to mention, he’s cheaper.


Looking forward, a promising WR draft prospect that has similarities to Wilson that MAY be around after the third round is Romeo Doubs. Same size 6’1″ 195, QB experience (for those trick pass plays), punt returner.

Good thing is the WR class is pretty deep, so they should be able to pick up a quality guy later to fill the void.
