The Cowboys Are Reportedly Eyeing A Former First-Round WR
The Dallas Cowboys have made some significant moves so far this offseason, including acquiring star cornerback Stephon Gilmore and wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
But some feel they still have one or two more significant moves up their sleeves.
This may not be considered a significant move, but they’re reportedly interested in signing free agent wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, who they recently worked out.

Treadwell was the 23rd pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings, and although he hasn’t become anything approaching a star, he has provided depth and support for four different teams.
In 76 career games, of which he has started 23, Treadwell has put up 1,226 receiving yards and scored five touchdowns.
He spent last season with the surprising Seattle Seahawks after being signed to their practice squad in early November.
Treadwell played three years of college ball at the University of Mississippi, and in his junior season, his final season there, he logged 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns.
With their offseason moves, Dallas is starting to look like it could be the favorite to finish first in the NFC East next season.
One thing that will help is the fact that the defending conference champion Philadelphia Eagles look weaker after losing Pro Bowl running back Miles Sanders and star defensive tackle Javon Hargrave.
But as usual, the Cowboys’ hopes in the playoffs will fall on the shoulders of quarterback Dak Prescott, who has been considered a disappointment on the big stage.
In last season’s Divisonal loss to the San Francisco 49ers, he completed just 23 of 37 passes and threw two interceptions.
