2. WR Olamide Zaccheaus

By now, Cowboys fans are getting the sense that Jerry Jones isn't going "all in" this offseason. If that's the case and he wants a cheaper WR to replace Gallup, Olamide Zaccheaus might be the perfect candidate.

Zaccheaus joined the rival Philadelphia Eagles last season but didn't see a ton of action. Although he appeared in all 17 games, the ex-Virginia Cavalier only played 41% of offensive snaps — his lowest mark since 2020.

But even with limited playing time, Zaccheaus made the most of what he was given. The 26-year-old turned 10 catches on 20 targets into 164 receiving yards, two touchdowns, and seven first downs. The 16.4 yards he averaged per reception made for the best output of his career.

Wouldn't it just be amazing if the Cowboys signed Zaccheaus and used him better than the Eagles did? He's clearly talented and it was only two years ago that he put up over 530 yards and three TDs with the Atlanta Falcons.

With Dak Prescott — who's thrown for 4,400-plus yards twice over the last three seasons — throwing him the ball, Zaccheaus could become quite the offseason steal. That's especially true with Spotrac projecting him to command only $2.6 million annually on his next deal.
