The Las Vegas Raiders have a new coach and could be cleaning house. If so, the Dallas Cowboys should call about these three players.
Josh McDaniels has taken over as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders and one thing we know for sure about him is that he doesn’t mind re-tooling his roster to his needs. That could mean several players from Las Vegas could be on the trade block and if they are, the Dallas Cowboys should be interested.
Vegas has a talented roster, evidenced by the fact that they made the playoffs in 2021 but they’re not exactly contenders. This is why McDaniels could be doing some fine-tuning — and why a team such as Dallas could do some bargain shopping.
Here we dive in and identify three players who the Cowboys should target from the Raiders this offseason.
Dallas Cowboys target No. 3: Bryan Edwards, WR
This first target comes with a little bit of a caveat. In 2021, the Cowboys had an elite wide receiver corps with Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, and Cedrick Wilson. The problem is, Gallup and Wilson are entering free agency and Cooper is a player some have suggested could be traded to save money for free agents.
Should Dallas lose any combination of these players, they would need to bring in more talent and that’s where Bryan Edwards comes in. A third-round pick in 2020, Edwards had just 11 receptions for 193 yards and a touchdown as a rookie and then added 571 yards and three scores off 34 receptions in year two.
He’s a player on the rise but Las Vegas is also going to be in the market for a No. 1 wideout. That could mean Edwards is a player they will listen to trade offers for and Dallas would surely like to add a 6-foot-3, 212-pound wideout who knows how to play in the slot.
