Dallas Cowboys Free Agency: A WR to Look At

The 2015 whirlwind of an season is officially over. That means the ' debacle-like season is done and we can now focus on the . One of the key parts of this year's offseason will be in . The reason is because what the Cowboys will do in free agency will dictate what they'll do in the .

In 2016, will return to full health, something that he really hasn't been since the end of last year. I fully expect the Cowboys to draft a receiver early in this year's draft. However, that doesn't exactly mean the Cowboys shouldn't look into signing one.

hasn't lived up to his draft hype and really is just terrible. I see a future for in Dallas, but I think it's time for the Cowboys to look into adding an explosive receiver, one who can take the top off the and add an extra element to 's . The player that fits that role is none other than Travis Benjamin.

Playing the past four seasons with the , Benjamin has played the role of a deep-ball receiver. However, despite playing with Josh McCown and , Benjamin had a career season, hauling in 68 passes for just under 1,000 yards as well as five touchdowns.

At 5-foot-10, 175 pounds, Benjamin doesn't have excellent size, but he's an elusive receiver that can be a huge weapon in Dallas. By having a guy like Benjamin, the Cowboys are able to space out the defense and allow guys like Bryant, , and to have more of an advantage with whomever they're going up against.

Even though Benjamin had a great season, the reality is that he won't get paid big bucks, and that's simply because of the garbage-time numbers he posted in Cleveland. That means the Cowboys will be in play for Benjamin if he does become available. Adding a player like Benjamin would give the Cowboys a young receiver who would be able to exploit defenses and expand the playbook.
