Cowboy for Life?

Free agent wide receiver to be Amari Cooper stated last night on 105.3 the Fan last night he loves being a Cowboy. Cooper went on to say, " I think about it everyday. Just the aura of being a Dallas Cowboy, you can't beat it. I want to be a Cowboy for life." A lot of Cooper's future in Dallas will hinge on what the club does with quarterback Dak Prescott who is the priority free agent signing this off season. Money will indeed be an issue and problematic in signing both players. Also Coopers injury riddled 2019 may be a factor in Dallas willingness to pay up for the receiver. A transition tag may very well be in play here.

Terry is in Fact Scary

Terry McLaurin was one of the nicest surprises coming out of the 2019 season. The rookie receiver put up a quite but impressive season where he was the biggest playmaker on an underwhelming Redskins team. Terry proved his nickname of Scary to be legit as he was a dangerous fixture in that passing attack. Wednesday night on an Instagram live post cornerback Darius Slay stated McLaurin was the second toughest receiver to guard this past season. The only receiver tougher to guard in Slay's opinion was Keenan Allen. That is pretty good company to be associated with and proves McLaurin's arrow is definitely pointing up.

McCoy out in K.C

NFL.coms Mike Garafolo reports that the Chiefs are not expected to resign free agent running back Lesean McCoy. McCoy now 31 states he still wants to play in 2020 and a few landing spots have surfaced for the veteran back. The first is chatter out of Detroit where McCoy is being described as a sleeper to end up in a Lion uniform. The other likely landing spot is the Los Angeles Chargers. With Melvin Gordon expected to move on this off season head coach Anthony Lynn, who was along side McCoy in Buffalo, may look to a familiar face to add to the backfield of Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson.

Gruden High on Chark

No not Jon, the other Gruden. New Jaguar offensive coordinator Jay Gruden sat down earlier this week with team reporter Ashlyn Sullivan for a brief interview and discussed what drew him to the team. Gruden quickly let it be known that the youth and talent the team possesses was they key factor in him moving south to Florida. The young talent in particular that caught the coaches eye, DJ Chark. Gruden stated, "DJ can do everything and that's what is exciting about him. He is a threat deep, short, intermediate, and he is a good blocker." Chark will enter the 2020 season as the clubs unquestioned top wide out.
