Vasquez-USA TODAY SportsKeeping Cole Beasley would have been nice, but it certainly wasn’t a priority. Beasley was a productive player and deserves our appreciation for what he did in Dallas. He’s the quintessential slot receiver and his sweet payday from Buffalo wasn’t out of line. So why didn’t Dallas pay him? A few reasons. One, the Cowboys are cheap in free agency. That’s just how it is. Second, Beasley is getting up in years and the Cowboys are reluctant to give long-term deals to players no longer in their prime age range. But probably the biggest reason they didn’t match Buffalo’s terms and keep Beasley is they have options to replace him. Good options.Obviously there is the draft. Guys like Deebo Samuels, Andy Isabella, and Parris Campbell are among the many receivers that should be available for the Cowboys if they want them. Generally receivers are one of the slower developing rookies in terms of production, so this might not be the ideal solution for 2018, but picking one up for the long-term is certainly a possibility.The Cowboys could also dip into free agency. Guys like Golden Tate and Randall Cobb are still available. Tate, especially, has been very productive his whole career, but he is on the wrong side of 30 and will likely still command a nice-sized contract. That kind of signing just doesn’t fit the Cowboys M.O. Of course, there are other, less expensive options out there, including one of their own, Tavon Austin. They may still re-sign Austin, but he just doesn’t seem like the answer in the slot; he’s yet to show that he is and he’s been in the league for a while.Then there is their own roster. We still don’t know what kind of player Cedrick Wilson can be since he got hurt early on in his rookie campaign last year. Lance Lenoir is perennially hanging on with the Cowboys in one way or another, but is he the guy the Cowboys want to trust out there? They could go with a committee approach but that doesn’t sound overly enticing after last year’s committee approach in the receiving department. There has been talk about Kellen Moore moving guys around more in pre-snap formations, and Amari Cooper has shown proficiency in catching the ball out of the slot. That said, the Cowboys certainly don’t want to him playing in the slot too often, he is a beast on the outside.Instead, the Cowboys are likely to turn to Allen Hurns. He of the disappointing 2018 season. His name could bring groans from some fans Dallas Cowboys Donovan Wilson Jersey , but moving him to the slot might just end up being a master stroke. Why? Because he’s basically a slot receiver.Physically, he’s much bigger than your traditional slot guy. But over the years, he’s done his best work out of the slot. He was forced to play out of position last year on the outside as a lead dog until Amari Cooper came along and rescued the Cowboys offense.This year, as long as he returns to health after his brutal ankle injury in the playoffs, he’s almost certainly going to be the slot guy. Here’s what Stephen Jones had to say back at the combine before we even knew Cole Beasley was leaving.Here’s another take on Hurns in the slot, this time from former Cowboy Barry Church who played a season with Hurns in Jacksonville.When pressed on why he thinks Hurns is a slot guy, Church continued:Hurns has had one thousand yard season in the NFL, 2015, and he did a lot of his damage that year from the slot. That article also goes deeper into how Hurns is really a slot guy because he does some of his best work on more horizontal routes. The slants, outs, drags, things that allow him to put a foot in the ground early and drive horizontally or at angles instead of going vertical and trying to challenge a defensive back at the top of a deeper route. His size may not say it, but his route running style says slot receiver. Given Hurns’ poor production in 2018 and his ankle injury, it’s understandable that Cowboys fans are thinking Dallas needs to look elsewhere to replace Cole Beasley in the lineup. A betting man, though, would put his money on Hurns being the guy the Cowboys organization turns to as the primary slot guy in 2019 as long as he’s healthy. And it looks like Hurns is going to be healthy. Bigger, faster, younger - he’s more upgrade than fill-in for the departed Cole Beasley."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Dallas Cowboys NewsDallas Cowboys 2019 OTARandall Cobb looking like more than just a patch job for CowboysNew,87commentsBigger, faster, younger - he’s more upgrade than fill-in for the departed Cole Beasley.CDTShareTweetShareShareRandall Cobb looking like more than just a patch job for CowboysHe looks to do for Dallas what he once did to them.Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY SportsThe Dallas Cowboys have had a productive offseason. There was the Robert Quinn trade Womens Donovan Wilson 2019 Jersey , getting the DeMarcus Lawrence contract done, picking up players like Kerry Hyder, George Iloka, and Christian Covington in free agency, and some intriguing draft choices and UDFAs added to the team. The team also had only one notable loss in free agency, slot receiver Cole Beasley. That created some concerns (because around here, we obsess about the negative), but those were quickly quieted when the team made an uncharacteristic move. They signed Randall Cobb to step into the slot. He is much more of a “name” player than Dallas has gone after since the failed Brandon Carr signing. And based on what we have seen in the first week of OTAs, he may well be a significant upgrade as well.Although he has been in the league a year longer than Beasley, Cobb is actually a bit more than a year younger. He is also bigger, 5’10” compared to 5’8”, and carries about ten more pounds. And so far, he has shown no lingering ill effects from the injuries that limited his production with the Green Bay Packers last year, forcing him to miss seven games. While OTAs don’t give much to gauge a player with no contact, he is looking good, as reported by Todd Archer of ESPN.Filling a need is the prime objective for Cowboys free agent signings. Cobb certainly looks to have that well-covered. That is good. What is intriguing about his arrival is how he may expand the role he steps into. Dak Prescott commented on that.Now, if you have read my posts here for a while, you might be aware of my penchant for connecting some dots. And those are some very intriguing dots, because they seem to tie directly into what we all hope new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is bringing to the mix: Moving players around, confusing the defense, and getting favorable situations for the offense to exploit. The fact Prescott talked about doing so many different things with Cobb makes you think that has been a subject of discussion with Moore. That should get all Cowboys fans a wee bit excited.Beasley was not used much other than as a traditional slot receiver Dallas Cowboys Donovan Wilson Jersey , although that is likely more a reflection of the predictability of the previous Dallas offensive scheme than any limitations Beasley had. Now, we hope to see more from the young new OC (who, it is interesting to note, is at the moment the same age as Beasley). And Cobb looks very much like exactly what Moore needs to bring some innovation and change. This is one position where flexibility is very much an asset, and it opens up the possibility of sometimes using Amari Cooper and his John Wick-level route running out of the slot. (Sorry for the gratuitous pop culture reference.) You can do that without sacrificing much by having Cobb out wide. It just adds options, and options are very, very good.Cobb brings a very important intangible to the table as well. He was a standout athlete in high school, being named “Mr. Football” by the governing body for high school athletics in Tennessee - primarily as a quarterback. He would also play QB his freshman year at Kentucky, before switching to wide receiver. Those years of being the passer give him a lot of insight into what the offense does overall, and it has already shown up in the OTAs.This has led to an immediate chemistry between the QB and WR that will only increase as they get more reps together. Prescott’s continued growth at his position is crucial for the Cowboys, and Cobb’s savvy and knowledge will only assist with that.It also doesn’t hurt that Cobb wanted to come to Dallas, as has been reported by Charean Williams of NBC (among others). As fans of the team, we want to think that Dallas is a preferred destination for many if not most NFL players and prospects. In this case, it is rooted in truth, as Cobb is joined by Quinn in having taken some initiative in landing with the Cowboys. Now, he is exactly where he wanted to be, and it looks like he is exactly what the team wants in a slot receiver. With a talent laden roster and head coach Jason Garrett in a contract year, there is a lot riding on this season. Cobb is showing every indication that he is more than able to shoulder his share of the load. Let’s go.
