The Cowboys come from another disappointing season, as their championship aspirations came to an end in the Wild Card round of the 2021 NFL playoffs. Dallas made its way to the postseason in great fashion, but the team fell apart when it mattered the most.
But now it’s time to turn the page for Dak Prescott and company. This year they’ll have the opportunity to prove the doubters wrong and put the team back where it belongs.
The Cowboys, however, lost some powerful weapons at wide receiver with the departures of Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson. Even so, Mike McCarthy is confident about what rookie wideout Jalen Tolbert can bring to the table.
Mike McCarthy optimistic about rookie WR Jalen Tolbert
“He reminds you just on first impressions as far as his movement traits, he’s somewhere kind of between CeeDee [Lamb] and Cedrick Wilson,” McCarthy said, via AL.com. “That’s his body type, and I think that’s a great comparable, and I think it illustrates what we’re looking for. When you have that type of skill set where you can come in here and have the ability to play inside and outside, I think it’s a real value.”
Tolbert, who played college football at South Alabama, was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with a third-round pick of the 2022 NFL Draft.
