Dallas Should Add DeSean Jackson To The WR Room

Perhaps the story of the for the Cowboys has been the losses they have sustained at . At the conclusion of the , it was known that both and would be . 's contract was also bound to have an effect on the team's ability to retain both players.

Forced to decide which of the three wideouts they wanted to keep in the fold, the Cowboys surprised everyone by bringing back Gallup. Signed to a five-year, $57,500,000 contract, it was clear that Cooper would be on the chopping block. Sent to the Browns for a fifth-round pick, Cooper and his contract were off the books. Wilson would eventually sign with the Dolphins as well, leaving just Gallup and in the receiver room.

Despite the losses of Wilson and Cooper, the Cowboys still have a formidable duo with Lamb and Gallup. Lamb especially has always looked the part of a number one receiver and had his best season in 2021 with 79 receptions for 1,102 yards and six touchdowns. Gallup, who will be returning from , has always been one of 's most trusted receivers.

The recently signed brings a lot of upside as well. However, the group lacks speed at this point. While all of these players can go deep, having a player with game-breaking speed is a great tool to have as an . This is where can be valuable.

DeSean Jackson fits the Cowboys

One of the greatest deep threats of all time, Jackson needs no introduction. This is especially true for . Since he was drafted by the back in 2008, Jackson has consistently terrorized the Cowboys. In fact, he has 61 receptions for 1,330 yards and six touchdowns against Dallas in his career. He has gone over 100 yards receiving against them five times as well.

Even at 35 years old, Jackson can still run. He displayed this early in the season with the Rams and again at points with the Raiders later in the year. In fact, perhaps his best game of the season came against the Cowboys on when he had four catches for 102 yards and a score.

The best way for the Cowboys to prevent Jackson from beating them on the field would be to add him to their team. As mentioned, Jackson is 35 years old and is likely looking to make one last run at a . Due to this, he will not be asking for much money. Jackson would fill a role in Dallas as a game-breaking speedster while also allowing the Cowboys to give the Eagles and Commanders a taste of their own medicine.

DJ is definitely a deep threat but the question is can he stay healthy? With one of the best route runners in the NFL gone that being Amari Cooper we are in need of a receiver or receivers that can get open on the shorter routes! To have DJ and MG both as deep threats certainly can’t hurt ! We need somebody to come in and replace AC but who could that be?As we stand today our receiving core in my opinion is needing help!


No, they should not!


Old is old.


Jackson has always been a thorn in the Cowboys side for years. Wish they picked him up earlier in his career when they had the chance. Under the RIGHT TERMS, would not mind him on our team now. He does appear to still have deep speed, something they could use.


Jackson and randy moss Another boneheaded move not to draft him when you had the chance instead I think you took Ellis. And then Moss burned us every game he played us

Ruben Trevino

More weapons for Prescott to work with.
Rebuilding the Offensive Line should be top-priorty in the upcoming draft!! You just paid your Quarterback!! You may want to protect his back!! You need to protect Dak Prescott back and open running lanes for Ezekiel and Pollard!!


Unless a trade up for a top OL is in the works, I think best edge or LB should be considered at 24. From there all that will be left of OL in 2nd rd will be out of top 10 picks. TE in 4th maybe?
