The Dallas Cowboys have always been an offensive-minded team. Even though they have focused on the running game in the past, they traditionally had a strong wideout option that they can go to. Well, now that Dez Bryant is gone, there is a chance that the Cowboys get worse when it comes to the pass plays.
They have suffered their first injury of the camp when their sixth-round pick Cedrick Wilson hurt his shoulder and was forced to leave the field.
The Cowboys, who are already a bit weak at this position, have gone out and got another wide receiver for themselves. The team signed an unrestricted free agent Ricky Jeune.
He is a 6-foot-2 big target wideout that weighs around 213 pounds. A big guy that can go up and get the ball is always something that quarterbacks like to have. Jeune spent his last year of college at Georgia Tech where he had a good senior season. The new Cowboys wide receiver recorded 74 receptions for 1,492 yards while getting into the end zone 11 times.
Run blocking is something that this guy is good at, which can be a great thing for a team like Dallas who is likely going to give at least 20-25 touches to Ezekiel Elliot. Because of that, everybody needs to be able to block, and Jeune is somebody that is used to that.
Besides being a big body and a great target for Dak, he can also become a nice deep threat for the ‘Boys as his career yard per catch average in college was 20.2, which is a more than a decent number for NCAA football.
Nobody expects this guy to be a big difference-maker for the Dallas Cowboys, but Ricky can be a nice piece for this squad and somebody that can bring a little bit of everything to the table.
