    Maybe the best way to respect him is to let him go to another team.

    Respect has nothing to do with it. Gallup is - at best - the 7th or 8th best player on the offense, and maybe no better than 10th best. In a salary cap reality, you can't pay a guy like that 8 figures, and someone will be willing to pay him that.

    He's gone, and so is Tank Lawrence, unless we see a lot better results from him than the last few years. As other have said above, Gregory and Schultz will get paid, room has to be made.

    they'll do whatever Dak says in this case. He'll have to choose between either Shultz + Wilson or Gallup.

    Yeah, I kinda wonder how things would tighten up if we did not have Cooper. Gallup always got single coverage, Cooper takes 2 a lot of time. It would be a whole different dynamic.

    Gallup might be the best #3 receiver in the league.. and if he isn't he's certainly in the top 5. That said, he's clearly now the #3 in Dallas. CD has passed him up.. That's not his fault but that's the reality. Since he is a more accomplished player than Wilson keeping him still makes sense at the right price.. But we all know somebody is going to throw #1 money at him.. which we absolutely cannot do. I'm not dumping Coop to keep Gallup no matter how much you people scream either.. Coop is the crafty veteran receiver that ever team needs. Who can also go off for 200 yards and 3 TDs if you sleep on him.. Gallup has never really shown that level of ability. To me this screams keep Wilson on an affordable deal and let Gallup test the waters. But none of that needs to take place until AFTER we win the Super Bowl..

    You can’t pay everyone and you have to find production cheaper. That’s the key to the whole thing. He’s a good WR but it’s a tough decision the FO has to make. Specially when you’re doing ok without him at the moment and you have holes elsewhere. But paying another WR.. you just can’t do it. Lambs deal is around the corner and today’s group boils down to Cooper or Gallup heading into 22. That’s the reality of the situation.

    Definitely agree unless someone is willing to part with a 1st or 2nd which I highly doubt. Keep him and still end up with the compensatory pick.
