As the Dallas Cowboys approach the softest part of their schedule, the news gets even better with the expectation of All Pro left tackle, Tyron Smith, and wide receiver, James Washington, rejoining the team after suffering significant injuries in the preseason. Those two will be a welcoming addition to improve the Cowboys offensive line and wide receivers’ corps

The Cowboys lead the league in scoring (33 points a game) since Dak Prescott’s return, but it has been a slow grind watching Cowboys WR1 (CeeDee Lamb) emerge and slowly fulfill that role. That also includes Michael Gallup shaking off the rust from his ACL injury and regaining form as a lethal WR2.

Even though Lamb and Gallup are getting better with each rep with Dak, the Cowboys’ wide receivers’ unit would be even better served with the addition of a certain dynamic, former Pro Bowler wideout: Odell Beckham, Jr.

If you think Lamb is coming into his own wearing the #88 jersey as WR1, he will supersede those expectations if OBJ joins the Cowboys because defenses won’t be able to shamelessly fixate on Lamb with OBJ on the field.

If the Dallas Cowboys sign Odell Beckham Jr, it will be similar to how the Cowboys signed Deion Sanders back in 1995.

Depending on your outlook of the Dallas Cowboys, you may or may not be on board with the Cowboys signing Beckham. Just based off of social media, Cowboys Nation is split 50/50 on Jerry Jones making OBJ his biggest free agent signing since Hall of Famer “Prime Time” Deion Sanders way back in 1995.

Let us go down memory lane really quickly and see how OBJ is this generation’s version of the 1995 “Prime Time” Sanders signing to Dallas.
