Cowboys News: Problems for team heading into 2022 training camp

What issues are the Cowboys facing as they approach camp? -Todd Archer, ESPN

Training camp will hopefully answer a lot of questions for the Dallas Cowboys.

Injury Updates: Gallup was thought to be a bit ahead of schedule when minicamp ended, but he’ll likely miss at least a few games in September. That was always the thought even before he re-signed a five-year deal in March. He’ll likely start training camp on the roster physically unable to perform, which isn’t too much of a concern. If he is on this list to start the season, it would be a concern as he would miss at least the first four games.

Linebacker Jabril Cox is also coming back from a torn ACL in his right knee. He was moving well in June and it is believed that he will be able to train at the start of camp. rookie linebacker Damone Clark will open camp on the non-football injury list after undergoing neck surgery in the spring. If he plays at all this season, it won’t be until November.

Why the Dallas Cowboys Should Trade for Jessie Bates – Jarret Pendergast, The Landry Hat

It seems unlikely, but a trade for Jessie Bates would improve Dallas’ secondary.

From the Cowboys’ point of view, they can acquire the 25-year-old security for a cheap package, because then they would have to pay him around $16 million per year, the going rate for high-level security. Additionally, Dallas would have to wait until the end of the 2022 season for the long-term deal with Bates. As no deal can be reached this year, Bates could be considered a hire, making his trade package cheaper. Even if he’s only acquired for the 2022 season alone, he could help propel their defense to the top tier.

The Cowboys have never shown that they are fully invested in the safety position. Most years they try to sign a few cheap players just to create a disparate safety position. Last year, that strategy worked, as they were able to find Jayron Kearse like a diamond in the rough. Even though the Cowboys just gave Kearse a new contract, Bates will fit in well with him. Kearse is elite around the line of scrimmage and Bates is elite when it comes to coverage. To be exact, Kearse led all safeties in tackles for loss last season with nine.

Cowboys camp: The last season of Ezekiel Elliott’s “Albatross” in Dallas? – Timm Hamm, Cowboy Country

Is 2022 the last season we’ll see Ezekiel Elliott in a Cowboys uniform?

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is entering his seventh season with the team in 2022. His time in Dallas was something of a roller coaster ridewith some statistical seasons that have been Pro-Bowl-worthy, and others that were forgettable.

Is the journey almost over?

Elliott is under contract with the Cowboys through the 2026 season. after signing a six-year, $90 million contract extension in September 2019 that gave him $50 million guaranteed.

It is because of this contract that some speculate that 2022 could be Elliott’s last season in Dallas.

Predicting Each NFL Team’s Biggest Bust of the 2022 NFL Season – Alex Kay, Bleacher Report

The Cowboys need a big season from Ezekiel Elliott.

Dallas Cowboys: RB Ezekiel Elliott

Ezekiel Elliott is no longer the feared running back he was earlier in his career.

After averaging more than 95 yards per game rushing in each of his first three seasons, Elliott has steadily declined in recent years. His production hit a new low in 2021 when he averaged just 58.9 rushing yards per contest.

Even his pass-catching abilities are fading. Elliott averaged at least 22 yards per game through the air in each of his first five seasons, but failed to even reach a mark of 17 yards per game last year.

With Tony Pollard on the come-up and ready to see a significant increase in touches this coming season, it’s obvious that Elliot is fading into the twilight of his career

While Elliott could still contribute to a winning Cowboys club, it would be foolish to expect him to be one of the best runners putting in 100+ yard performances with any consistency.

Even though Dallas is still pay it like a superstar, Elliott will see his workload diminished further as he settles into a more even timeshare with Pollard this coming campaign.

Jalen Tolbert is looking forward to the opportunity with the Dallas Cowboys – Mark Inabinett,

Jalen Tolbert will have every chance of playing a vital role with the Cowboys as a rookie.

Jalen Tolbert will report for his first NFL training camp on Sunday when Dallas Cowboys rookies meet in Oxnard, Calif.

“I’m really excited about the opportunity that’s been given to me,” Tolbert said during an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio earlier this month, “and just being able to go compete and continue doing what I love. A lot of people don’t get the chance to play after college. And so I definitely have a special opportunity. And I can’t wait to be there.”

the old Southern Alabama opportunity to stand out with the Cowboys comes after he joined Dallas in the third round of the NFL Draft April 29. By then, the Cowboys had traded the Pro Bowl wide receiver four times amari cooper to Cleveland Browns and lost wide receiver Cedrick Wilson to Miami Dolphins in free agency.
