    Dez has also played the game differently than Hurns. He took a lot of contact early in his career fighting for extra yards. I just think he has more wear than Hurns.

    Except Hurns has been injured the past two years.

    I hate hate hate going into a draft forcing yourself to draft a certain position.

    I dont think you can get away from that fully. Depending on degree of need every team needs to do that.

    Yep, there is always a risk.

    I'm not saying dump Dez before the draft, but if we can grab a WR in one of the first 2-3 rounds, I think we can after the draft, depending on who we get.

    In addition to Allen Hurns, the Cowboys will meet with free agent wide receiver Deonte Thompson, according to sources. Thompson had 38 catches for 555 yards and two touchdowns with the Chicago Bears and Buffalo Bills in 2017. He had his most success with Buffalo, catching 27 passes for 430 yards in 11 games (seven starts). The Cowboys will have met with four receivers in free agency in Hurns, Thompson, Dontrelle Inman and Justin Hunter.

    I think this is a simplification.

    Dak went with the open option as a rookie, taking what the defense gave him.

    But that was because he was inexperienced and it was the least risky approach.

    I don't know that as he matures he'll remain "happy" settling for what the defense gives him.

    That said, I'd like him to spread the ball around, but it needs to be to knock the defense off balance setting up for the plays the team really wants to run.

    This is exactly what I think will happen. Hurns is just a veteran to fill out the roster while a rookie gets his feet firmly planted. Of course none of that will happen if we can't sign Hurns for a good number. I think the idea is to get Dez and his 16.5 mil a year off the books as soon as possible and cut that down to something reasonable.

    Twill should be worried about Hurns, not Dez.
