    Will Terrance Williams be Relegated to Backup Duty in 2018?

    There will be plenty of things to pay close attention to now that the are about to get into their program, but one position in particular might stand out above the rest… the wide receiver position.

    The Dallas Cowboys knew they had to do something to upgrade the position after witnessing everyone dramatically underperform in 2017 and made it a focus of the offseason. It was an approach that will now result in quite a few new faces in the Cowboys WR meeting room.

    , , , and are the incoming new faces and their additions will certainly shake up the Cowboys WR depth chart. It's really going to be interesting to see how all of this ends up shaking out, but I think it could spell trouble for Terrance Williams.

    As things stand right now, I think Terrance Williams is at best WR3 on the Dallas Cowboys depth chart and could fall much further before the 2018 season gets underway. Unfortunately for him, he couldn't have chosen a worse time to break his foot and missed time.

    It kind of slipped through the cracks with all of the excitement of and the 2018 , but No. 83 broke his foot a few weeks ago and is expected to miss the majority of the offseason workouts. He could be back in time for , but these kind of foot injuries have a way of lingering. So, who knows when he will actually be ready?

    With Williams out, this is the perfect opportunity for other wide receivers to step up and catch the eye of the Dallas Cowboys . I'm not just talking about these incoming rookies and , but someone like has a chance to really make some noise.

    The Dallas Cowboys can't afford to play favorites at this point, especially since they decided to their best WR a few weeks before the draft. They have to do what's best for the team, which means Terrance Williams could take quite a fall down the depth chart if things work out the way I believe they will.

    You see, while Williams is out nursing his foot , I think Michael Gallup will move up to WR3 on the depth chart and become the Cowboys new “Z” receiver. This is a position Williams has held down for the past several years, but it looks as if time might have caught up with him.

    Of course, Gallup isn't the only WR who could surpass Williams on the depth chart. I believe Noah Brown is ready for a bigger workload entering his second year in the NFL. He probably should've been utilized more often last season, but that's neither here nor there now.

    So, it's not out of the question Terrance Williams ends up falling two spots on the depth chart, ending up as the WR5. That means he will likely end up being relegated to backup duty for the 2018 season.

    Do you think Terrance Williams will be relegated to backup duty in 2018?

    He’ll be this year’s Darren Mcfadden. They’ll find a way to keep him inactive all year even if he’s healthy. It will also depend on how much they like Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown, and Deonte Thompson.

    Probably the biggest weakness for this staff is the inertia factor. We’ve watched JG and Linehan do no adjustments when defenses demolished their gameplan, and we watched Williams start every week with low production, while the deep threat Butler only came in on long downs. Similar complaint Beasley / Switzer, and Witten / Gathers (after concussion early season).

    WR is changing this year, but they have a general problem locking in to stuff that isn’t panning out.

    Mr. Jaguar

    With the new receivers coach emphasis on on the field discipline in carrying out their position assignments as technician @ the wide receiver position, imho, I expect the Cowboys to trade T. Williams, by the trade deadline in October, to a desperate team. Can’t see him on the roster for 2019. Cowboys organization are doing what the Patriots been8 doing for years. Having their wide receiver position being a core of technicians, who are perceise route runners, and have the ability to make adjustments against the opposition defense ,with on the field discipline in reading defenses, which has made T. Brady , a hall of fame quarterback .

    Now Dak, will benefit, because this type of schematic concepts, complements his weaknesses, and enhances his strengths. Expect the Cowboys organization to draft more wide receivers, who falls into this category, to be selected, instead of wide receivers, who just rely on athletic abilities.
