1. Mike Williams, WR

This one would be the toughest to see happen since the Cowboys front office might be scared of two factors with Mike Williams. One is his durability concerns and the other is his contract.

Williams came into the NFL as an insanely gifted talent but did have a fractured bone in his neck cost him a full year as a collegiate player. He was still drafted seventh overall and outside of his rookie season, he stayed relatively healthy for much of his career until 2023.

A torn ACL limited him to just three games but when he’s on the field, the 6-foot-4, 218-pound can take over a game. He has 4,806 yards on 309 receptions with 31 touchdowns in his career. He averages 15.6 yards per catch with a career-high of 20.4 in 2019.

As long As he’s healthy, Williams can be a huge addition to any team. Having said that, he’s considered a trade target since he’s slated to account for $32 million against the cap in 2024. He’s also entering the last year of his deal, so he too can be extended to lower the cap.

The question will be whether or not a team such as Dallas would take the risk of bringing him in and giving him a deal that would keep him on the books until he approaches his mid-30s. Of course, it would be an “all-in” move and that’s what they’re supposed to be this year.
