Signing Will Fuller Makes Sense For Cowboys

The Cowboys have a lot of promise in their room. and are still young with much potential, is an exciting rookie and adds depth to the rotation.

But the one thing Dallas lacks in its receiver room is a quality veteran presence. is the longest-tenured Cowboys receiver, having been on the team since 2017. However, he’s been a career backup and hasn’t made much of an impact during his time in Dallas.

There are still a few intriguing options in the market, and the Cowboys have a lot of cap space. One of these options is , who, if signed, will enter his seventh NFL season in 2022.

Fuller spent last season with the and didn’t produce much. Although, it wasn’t entirely his fault. Fuller was suspended for the first game of the for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy and suffered a season-ending broken thumb in week four. He caught just four passes for 26 yards in two games, and Miami elected not to extend his contract.

However, before 2021, he had a career season with the . In 2020, he caught 53 passes for 879 yards and eight touchdowns, all of which were career-highs. This season gave the Dolphins high hopes for Fuller, but he failed to pan out.

This isn’t to say he still can’t contribute, though. Fuller is still very quick and uses his speed to create separation and be a downfield threat. He could come off the bench for the Cowboys and provide a big play every so often when they need it.

The one downside to him is his health. Apart from the aforementioned broken thumb last season, Fuller tore his ACL in 2018, forcing him to miss games in 2019 as well. He also suffered a broken collarbone in the . With three at age 28, there isn’t a guarantee he won’t get injured again and miss almost half the season.

But, Fuller would be a low-risk, low-cost option that could provide depth to the Cowboys’ WR corps. You can never have enough depth, and Fuller also brings experience that Dallas lacks at his position.

I wish we would sign him!! I know his injury history is concerning, but if he can stay on the field, he has WR1 potential!! And the speed he has is something we don’t have on this team either, so I think he would be a good fit for us!! I know Gallup is our deep threat, but he’s more like Dez was…. He’ll catch the 50/50 deep balls…. While Fuller on the other hand can catch the deep ball and take it to the house with his speed!! So yeah, I would really like it if he was on our team!! I doubt it’ll happen, but it would be nice!!

I know it’s worn out when I post on these sites but, NEVER sign or draft players with significant injuries/injury history, players on the downside of their careers or players that can’t stay on the field for any other reason including suspensions (ie Randy Gregory missing 50 games or a T. Smith who hasn’t played a full season in years). He’s starting to get a little older, has had significant injuries and produced some 800+ yards in a season a few years ago. He might work out great and, for his sake I hope he does, but I’m taking a hard pass on him.
