Jacksonville Jaguars WR trade target No. 4 – Michael Gallup
The 2021 Dallas Cowboys aren’t flawless but they look good and have the top-scoring offense in the NFL after six weeks of football. One of the reasons is the return of Dak Prescott, who is playing at a high level. He’s coming off a torn ACL and dealt with a shoulder injury in the preseason. This makes his comeback even more impressive.
Other quarterbacks could be jealous of Prescott’s having such a wide array of weapons in the passing game. Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is living up to his first-round billing, hauling in 33 receptions for 497 yards and four touchdowns. Tight end Dalton Schultz is second in receptions with 31 and Amari Cooper ranks third with 30. On the other hand, there aren’t enough targets left for Michael Gallup.
Back in 2019, it seemed like Gallup was on his way to becoming the Cowboys’ number one receiver, catching 66 passes for 1,107 yards and six touchdowns. Even last season, he was still pretty productive in spite of Dallas’ inconsistency at quarterback, registering a respectable 59 receptions for 843 yards and five trips to the end zone.
However, the 2018 second-round pick has been limited to four catches and 36 yards this season. Gallup’s position is less than ideal. He’s in a contract year and instead of showing he deserves to cash in, he’s stuck in the cellar of the Cowboys’ wide receiver depth chart. He would surely like to be offered the opportunity to make plays and the Jaguars could grant him that chance.
