Dallas Cowboys on the way out

Dorance Armstrong, DE

Dorance Armstrong is another one of my one-time “pet cats” that I believe to be on his way out. But instead of being too good to re-sign, like I believe Connor Williams and Dalton Schultz to be, Armstrong just hasn’t done enough to justify his spot.

Even coming off one of his best games as a pro last week, he just hasn’t progressed past rotational end. His roster spot tends to be a revolving door and the Dallas Cowboys tend to churn here fairly often. I fully expect them to bring in a new Dorance Armstrong who’s playing on a rookie deal to replace the Kansas lineman.

Noah Brown, WR

The Dallas Cowboys raised some eyebrows when they brought Noah Brown back this year. The blocking specialist is fairly one-dimensional and despite evenly splitting snaps with Cedrick Wilson in 2020, he’s not much to get excited about as a weapon.

But Brown was by far the Cowboys best run-blocker of the WR corps and because of that he had a valuable role in Kellen Moore’s offense. Now the tides are turning and new players are starting to make their presence felt. Wilson is having a nice season himself and is the favorite to replace Michael Gallup next year as the WR3.

They also have the 25-year-old Malik Turner turning some heads. The 6-foot-2 202 lb receiver isn’t the blocker Brown is but he’s explosive after the catch. Unlike Brown, Turner’s ceiling is yet to be determined.

Dallas even has rookies Simi Fehoko and Brandon Smith developing in the background. All together the Dallas Cowboys have multiple players whose progress is being somewhat blocked by the existence of Noah Brown.
