The Dallas Cowboys had a great 2018 season. They drastically improved after trading for Amari Cooper. That being said, the Cowboys do need help to further bolster a mediocre receiving corps.
However, the move to put them over the top would be to make a trade this offseason for another weapon for their quarterback, Dak Prescott. Prescott only had 22 passing touchdowns last year, which would definitely improve with another new weapon.
This brings me to my point: the Cowboys should trade for Antonio Brown.
Here’s why: The more weapons Dak has, the easier it is to run the football for Zeke because teams will be forced to use more secondary players to cover the wideouts instead of linebackers.
Having Antonio Brown will cause defenders to focus on him and it will help Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup by causing teams to put their second and third best corners on them, or even double team Brown, leaving Cooper and Gallup open.
Of course, if opposing defenses catch on and adjust, and decide not to treat AB as a star, Brown will show them why he’s the league’s best receiver.
The trade will help Dak get the ball out quicker. Brown is an amazing route runner that can create separation better than most wide receivers in the league.
Antonio Brown wants out of Pittsburgh and everyone knows it, therefore his trade value has gone down quite a bit. It isn’t too far of a stretch to say that Dallas could get him for a 2nd-round pick and a late-round selection.
He is well worth it and he could be the missing piece to the Lombardi Trophy that fans in Dallas have been salivating over for decades.
