DALLAS COWBOYS (11-7)New faces: TE Jason Witten

Post by liny195 »

Dawson Knox Jersey Draft , DE Robert Quinn, WR Randall Cobb, RB Tony Pollard, DT Trysten Hill, DE Kerry Hyder, DT Christian Covington, OL Connor McGovern, S George Iloka, S Donovan Wilson.Key losses: WR Cole Beasley, TE Geoff Swaim, DL David Irving, LB Damien Wilson.Strengths: Run game if Ezekiel Elliott ends holdout that approached month as team continued camp in Texas following annual stint in California. Pass game improved significantly following midseason trade for WR Amari Cooper last year. One of league's best offensive lines gets Travis Frederick back after center missed 2018 with nerve disorder. DE DeMarcus Lawrence Dawson Knox NFL Jersey , LBs Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Esch lead talented young defense.Weaknesses: No significant upgrades at safety, although returning starter Xavier Woods showed promise in camp. Young cornerbacks have talent, but not takeaways to show for it. CB Byron Jones missed offseason, camp coming off hip surgery. K Brett Maher was good on long kicks, inconsistent on short ones as surprise replacement for Dan Bailey last year. Inconsistency has resurfaced in preseason.Fantasy Players to Watch: Every fantasy owner has to decide where to grab Elliott if holdout hasn't ended before drafts. Rookie Pollard offers intrigue even with Elliott on roster. Cooper's first full season with Cowboys could lead to fruitful numbers. Witten's return after year in retirement should help in red zone, which could be factor for fantasy players.Vegas Says: Win Super Bowl 24-1. Over/under wins 9.Expectations: Super Bowl or bust for proud franchise just one season away from marking 25 years without trip to NFC championship game since fifth Super Bowl title. Outlook hinges heavily on whether Elliott gets new contract, or decides to report in hopes of eventually getting deal done. QB Dak Prescott has new, young play caller in Kellen Moore coming off two NFC East titles in three years, with 32-16 record, and first playoff win. Just like five years ago, Jason Garrett coaching for job in final year of contract. Trip to divisional round was good enough in 2014, might not be this time after Cowboys lost divisional game to Rams last season. ORCHARD PARK Dawson Knox NFL Draft , N.Y. (AP) — Josh Allen took it upon himself to be the Buffalo Bills‘ one-man welcoming committee in sending a text to each of the team’s numerous free agent additions last month.“It didn’t take a whole lot of effort to do it,” Allen said, discussing how many of the newcomers revealed how impressed they were in the quarterback being among the first to greet them. “I was just trying to let them know that I’m happy that they’re with us, and just trying to reach out and get my foot in the door and start that relationship as early as possible.”The next step in the introductory phase came Monday, when the Bills opened their voluntary workout sessions.For Allen, it was the second-year player’s first real opportunity to begin putting names to the many new faces Buffalo added in essentially revamping its entire offense. Of the Bills’ 17 veteran free agents signed this offseason, 11 play offensive positions.It’s a group that includes established receivers Cole Beasley and John Brown, tight end Tyler Kroft, and running back Frank Gore. Beasley and Brown join a bunch of receivers that lacked experience and a proven threat, while Gore will be teamed with LeSean McCoy in a backfield featuring two players over 31.The remaining seven are offensive linemen, including center Mitch Morse, in Buffalo’s bid to upgrade what had been a patchwork unit a year ago. Aside from Allen leading the team with 631 yards rushing Dawson Knox Buffalo Bills Jersey , Buffalo ground attack sputtered, and the line had difficulty in pass protection.Though excited, Allen isn’t sure what to make of all the new additions because, as he put it: “It’s my first offseason, so I don’t really know how things work.”The Bills are hoping the newcomers spur a dramatic improvement and play a role in continuing Allen’s development after he showed signs of improvement as last season progressed. The first-round draft pick initially struggled when being thrust into the starting role after Nathan Peterman unraveled in a season-opening 47-3 loss at Baltimore.Allen averaged 151 yards passing with five touchdowns (three rushing), five interceptions and a lost fumble in going 2-3 before being sidelined by a sprained right throwing arm. He closed the season with a 3-3 record in which he averaged 207 yards passing with 12 touchdowns (four rushing), seven interceptions and a lost fumble.“It means we’ve got a lot of work to do. A lot of different new minds trying to work with each other now, trying to build that camaraderie,” Allen said. “It’s not going to be perfect right away, and we don’t expect it to be perfect. But we’re starting that communication now, and hopefully we can start getting on the same page with everything.”Allen has already begun developing a bond with Morse, who is projected to take over at center.The first thing Allen learned was Morse isn’t big on spicy chicken wings.“Honey-butter barbecue Color Rush Dawson Knox Jersey , Cajun, he can do that all day, but hot is not his thing,” Allen said with a laugh after introducing Morse to his favorite wings restaurant. “But lucky to have him and glad to have him, especially with all we’ve got going on.”NOTES: Allen said his right elbow feels fine, and added he spent a few weeks working with a physical therapist this offseason. … The offseason program coincides with the Bills opening their newly built two-floor, $18-million workout facility added on to their practice fieldhouse. “It’s amazing. I think it speaks for itself,” linebacker Tremaine Edmunds said. “The owners really did pretty much what we could ask for.”… The Bills will hold their first on-field team practice on May 20.
