Cowboys Near Agreement With Wide Receiver Michael Gallup

According to Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter, the and are close to agreeing on a new deal that will essentially make him the Boys' new WR2, or arguably their new WR1.

Gallup, who served as the team's WR2/WR3 this season, was a player that the Cowboys were going to have to make a difficult decision on in this year's , but it's now clear that the team prefers to keep him over Wide Receiver , who is reportedly being released or traded this month.

Before Gallup's ACL tear, there were rumors he was hoping to get paid around $14 million a year, and some people saw that as a figure the team couldn't match. However, his caused his value to decrease, but according to Spotrac, can still command an average of $11.8 million.

Now with no Cooper in the picture, it's looking like Gallup will need to step up big time next season to prove to the Cowboys he's worth his payday, and it should be interesting to see how fast he allocates himself back on the field.

Currently, the team has wide receivers , , and Malik Turner sitting in free agency, and it's likely one of those three will be brought back to serve as their third wide receiver.

Wilson, who stepped up once Gallup went down, showed a connection with Dallas Cowboys during the latter part of the season, and he likely won't cost you an arm and a leg to re-sign.

Additionally, if the franchise decides not to bring back those three wideouts, they could always address the position in this year's which is expecting to bring in a deep-wide receiver class.

Some WR targets fans should familiarize themselves with include Ohio State Wide Receiver Chris Olave, Western Michigan Wide Receiver , Penn State Wide Receiver , Arkansas Wide Receiver , Georgia Wide Receiver George Pickens, and Memphis Wide Receiver Calvin Austin III.

MG is a very good WR, and if AC is cut or traded (to get something for him), they would need to sign him. Michael would have more yards and TDs if he wasn’t overthrown on a fairly regular basis by DP.


Need to keep Amari

David Simmons

Calvin Austin III

MG is good, but the injury concerns me. Considering how late in the season he had surgery, It’s unlikely he is 100% at any point next year. I’m okay with bringing him back, but not overpaying him. But the cowboys are known for overpaying their home grown talent….so there’s that.
