We are one week out from Christmas, and while this Dallas Cowboys season has been fairly special, every fan wants to see it capped off with a Lombardi Trophy. One might consider a Super Bowl run at this stage of the season a… Christmas miracle! *slaps knee*

I feel like I write one of these every year that usually highlights the moves I want to see happen during the offseason. With the Cowboys entering a possibly team-altering free agency, the wishlist might be a little bigger, and as a result increasingly predictable.

Obviously moves like re-signing Michael Gallup and Dalton Schultz are moves most Cowboys fans want to see. With relatively few needs across the team as well, I likely won’t be asking for much either. So what’s at stake this coming offseason?

Here is my 2021 Dallas Cowboys Christmas List

Wish Number 1:

Re-sign Connor Williams

I will continue being intolerable about this if it means the Cowboys’ offensive line will return to its gloriousness of weeks two through six of the 2021 NFL season. After literal years of Cowboys fans wanting to play Connor McGovern over “liability” Connor Williams, the end result was everyone asking for the opposite as McGovern quickly proved he was the liability often looking overwhelmed trying to fill in.

What stinks the most is that Tyler Biadasz has played very well the last few weeks and it seemingly gets canceled out by a guy who just isn’t ready to play as a starter in the NFL quite yet.

So after all the talk of penalties and benching why re-sign Connor Williams? Because of those things. His market value likely won’t ever be lower due to these factors and as long as everyone understands he’s still a good player, keeping him on a team with four starting linemen likely solidifies the line.

The bigger reason to re-sign Williams is that the offensive line strength in this draft is fairly hit or miss. The offensive tackle class has some excellent prospects that are surely Day 1 players, but most of them will be gone by the time the Cowboys pick. (Not all, but most) If the Cowboys get lucky with a tackle available at their pick, would he immediately be an upgrade over Williams who already is pretty good?

Also factoring in offensive line continuity, if the Cowboys can keep Williams on the depth chart without spending a pretty penny, it makes life easier for the rest of the offensive line and QB Dak Prescott.

This likely isn’t realistic, but I am writing a wishlist after all!
