Fans of the Dallas Cowboys continue to await the meaningful moves that team owner and general manager Jerry Jones promised them when he said the franchise was going to go "all in" this offseason. They've already brought back fan favorite running back Ezekiel Elliott from the New England Patriots, but have yet to make any major splashes.

One free agent wide receiver that still needs a new professional home is Michael Thomas of the New Orleans Saints. Like Elliott, he played college football with the Ohio State Buckeyes. And according to Matt Bowen of ESPN, the Cowboys are a lead contender to land Thomas' services. 

"When healthy, Thomas can still uncover and work multiple levels of the field,” Bowen wrote in a May 20, 2024 story titled, “Best NFL team fits for remaining free agents, trade candidates.” However, the injury concerns are legit, as the 31-year-old wide receiver has played in just 20 games over the past four seasons. And while Thomas could wait until after camps start to find the best landing spot, let’s focus on Dallas as a possibility; he could make an impact there on a one-year deal.

“In Mike McCarthy’s offense, Thomas could compete with Jalen Tolbert for the No. 3 role alongside CeeDee Lamb and Brandin Cooks,” Bowen continued. “He could align as a boundary X and show his ability to work the seams out of the slot. He caught 39 passes in 2023 for 448 yards and a score.”

Cowboys fans, just how would you like to see Dallas pull the trigger on bringing him aboard to help the offensive attack under Dak Prescott?
