David Njoku landing spot no. 2: Dallas Cowboys
Yes, the Dallas Cowboys need to find their way out of salary cap purgatory.
If they had to go out and make moves today, it would either be restructuring players, extending players, or cutting them to free up cap space.
What’s crucial to remember is that teams have people in charge of the salary cap that understand how to manipulate it and make moves while staying under it, so the Cowboys will eventually get there and they always have cash on hand.
It’s possible that Dallas would need to make some sacrifices elsewhere to add a player like Njoku, who might get offers to play in other NFL cities at a higher price tag, but he could really thrive in an offense like Dallas runs.
With Dak Prescott throwing the passes, Dalton Schultz has quietly caught 78 and 63 passes over the last two seasons. If Schultz (another free agent in this loaded class) can do that, what could an athlete like Njoku do?
Especially with some of the target share potentially leaving in free agency — Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson are both free agents — Njoku could really prosper in Dallas’ offense.
Kellen Moore is still around after a round of head coaching interviews. Njoku could come into Dallas and give them a dynamic weapon for Prescott to get the ball to who can both free up opportunities for players like Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb as well as create offense on his own.
