Given the likelihood that the Cowboys will release Amari Cooper later this month, a long-term agreement with Michael Gallup is expected to be a top priority for Dallas.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter dropped a bombshell on Friday morning, stating that the Dallas Cowboys will likely release Amari Cooper soon. This decision makes sense for the Cowboys due to salary cap difficulties, but that doesn’t mean fans are delighted.
Dallas will then focus on giving Michael Gallup a long-term contract, according to insider Charles Robinson. Dallas supporters are once again criticizing this trade, especially because Gallup is coming off an ACL tear.
Part of the plan here, I’m told from a league source, is buttoning up a long term deal for Michael Gallup. #Cowboys felt it was an either/or and are making Gallup the priority. https://t.co/3eUp7ffIRR

Michael Gallup appears to be on the verge of a new deal in Dallas
It’s simple to see why so many Dallas residents are angry with Cooper as he leaves town. In this league, he’s become a legitimate superstar, and he’s been a go-to option for Dak Prescott. Remember when Jerry Jones was mocked for providing the Raiders numerous first-round picks in exchange for Cooper?
With his on-field performance, the veteran wideout proved everyone wrong. Cooper will undoubtedly attract a lot of attention whenever he becomes a free agent. He’s only 27 years old, so he still has a lot of excellent football ahead of him.
Gallup, on the other hand, has been working nonstop on his knee recovery. In 2022, he’ll be ready to bounce back and catch the ball from Prescott and put up monster numbers. With that stated, Cooper’s departure will be a significant blow to this offensive. Dalton Schultz, the tight end, might not be back in 2022 as well.
Next season, the Dallas offense might look drastically different. Moving forward, this is something that the Dallas supporters are quite concerned about.
