    but I hear nothing about Dez talking to anybody.

    If Witten can return..

    if D. Ware can float rumors of returning for one more season to Dallas..

    Dez would immediately elevate the offense plus backup both wide receiver positions.

    At this point you give him a base deal with incentives and see what happens.

    I am mystified with us in this situation.

    Linehan is gone and that was a problem for Dez.

    Can anybody throw some light on this?

    Just to remind everybody..

    watch this..

    Just kidding.

    The MAJOR strength of the best Slot guys is great route runners with excellent route quickness. Does that sound like Dez? Ummmmm......NO!!!!!

    That play
    Straw that broke the camel’s back for me.
    Significantly reduced, permanantly, how much I care about us winning or losing.
    Still enjoy watching, but let’s just say I’ve grown up.

    Dez was never in the slot when he was here.

    Not a fit.

    Logic says after all the talk of "Garrett Guys" that ship set sail from a burned bridge.

    This. Dez runs trash routes. IF he came back to Dallas, his snaps would primarily be on the outside. I'd much rather sign Donte Moncrief than Dez. Dez is done IMO.

    He did train with a route guru.

    I think learning how to run proper routes was such a shock to his body that it caused the injury.

    No. He talked about training with a route guru. Talking is all Dez does. If he could talk his way to a super bowl we would have three preated by now.

    It's a well established fact that Dez could not play the slot position which is why Beas happened. OP, please do try to do better.

    Once a member of the Dallas Cowboys always a member of the Dallas Cowboys. I wouldn't be opposed to us bringing back Dez. However, I'm not sure that it would be best if we had Dez in the slot the entire game. instead what I would do, is to have Dez Cooper and Gallup rotated each other so that defences would not be able to predict which way they're going to go. This would give us an extra bit of creativity and less predictability.

    However, we should not forget that we also have Cedrick Wilson who can make for a very good slot for an outside player. So that give us a little bit of an extra weapon too if we had all four of them, along with Jason Witten and Ezekiel Elliott. Or have separate packages for them to make us even more dangerous. Defences can't double cover multiple players so one of them would likely be very well open.

    Not being a great route runner...okay, but Talking is all he does is utterly ridiculous. This man is the a top 3 most storied franchise TD leader at the WR position.

    Just say you dont like him.

    That was a long time ago. Four years ago since he performed at a high level.

    He played prettt well prior to signing his new contract but all he has done is talk a good talk since then.
