Dallas Cowboys: TE Hunter Henry (Los Angeles Chargers)
The Cowboys have not made the playoffs in consecutive years since the 2006 and ‘07 campaigns, when first Bill Parcells and a year later Wade Phillips guided the club to the postseason. The new man in charge is Mike McCarthy, who led the Green Bay Packers to eight straight playoff appearances from 2009-16 and won Super Bowl XLV.
While the headlines for the last year or in regards to the Dallas Cowboys have focused on their four-year quarterback, Jerry Jones and the organization have a lot of prominent players that they need to make decisions on within the next few weeks. March 18 is quickly approaching and it’s going to be interesting to see what the team strategy will be when it comes to standout performers such as quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Amari Cooper, defensive end Robert Quinn and cornerback Byron Jones – to name a few.
There’s another potential free agent that could be headed elsewhere. Tight end Jason Witten returned to the Cowboys in 2019 after a one-year stint in the Monday Night Football booth. Will he be back in Dallas? Regardless of who’s throwing the football for the team in 2020, the team could get a lot younger and more explosive at the position with the signing of Hunter Henry.
