tedly have no interest On Saturday Cheap Josh Rosen Jersey , the Browns announced that the team will be parting ways with oft-suspended wide receiver, Josh Gordon. Reports circulated that the release has nothing to do with substance abuse, but rather that the team simply cannot trust Gordon.The Browns plans to release Gordon on Monday, but there is a chance that a team can swoop in and trade for him before then.Sunday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Gordon is eyeing two NFL teams — one of which is the Dallas Cowboys.Along with the 49ers, Gordon appears to be interested in joining the Dallas Cowboys. Does this mean that he has heard through the grapevine that these are two teams that are interested in making a move for him, or does he really just want an opportunity to wear the star and play for America’s Team?The star wide receiver posted this message on Saturday following the news of his eventual release, asking does “anybody need a deep threat WR??”.As any fan base does when a big-name player suddenly hits the market, the thought occurred of the former Baylor Bears receiver coming back to Texas and giving Dak Prescott a dynamic weapon to throw the ball to. On Saturday Cheap Christian Kirk Jersey , though, reports stated that the Cowboys “have no interest”.There is no denying that Josh Gordon is one of the elite on-field talents at the wide receiver position in the game of football; however, the reports of Dallas not having any interest are understandable given all of the question marks and concerns surrounding Gordon, from his history with substance abuse to the fact that the Browns feel like they cannot even trust him.It is no secret that the Cowboys need a wide receiver to emerge as a go-to threat for Prescott in order to open up the offense and to get things rolling in the right direction. Gordon, a native of the Lone Star State and a Baylor product, drew lots of interest from the Cowboys leading up to the 2012 supplemental draft. He certainly has the raw talent to take an offense to the next level and he reportedly has interest in playing for the Cowboys, but this appears to be a long-shot as the Cowboys are reportedly not reciprocating the interest. Name: Taylor RappSchool: WashingtonHeight: 6’0”Weight: 212 lbs2018 stat line: 13 games, 59 tackles, 5 sacks , 2 interceptions, 4 passes defensedOne of the Cowboys’ biggest needs this offseason is finding a safety who can play opposite of Xavier Woods. Luckily for Dallas, there are several talented safety prospects that could potentially be available when the Cowboys make their first pick at 58. Last week I talked about Virginia’s Juan Thornhill, and today it’s Washington’s Taylor Rapp. Rapp has spent the last three seasons as a key cog in Chris Petersen’s dominant defense. He started 10 games as a true freshman and won Pac 12 Freshman Defensive Player of the Year. In his sophomore season, Rapp was named to the All-Pac 12 first team and he became a first team All-American prior to his junior year. That big label inevitably led to his statistics underwhelming some, which may cause Rapp to fall to the Cowboys. That shouldn’t deter anyone from thinking that Rapp is anything other than a physical defender with a football IQ better than most. In games where Rapp is asked to play the run, he diagnoses things very quickly and breaks on the ballcarrier, almost always taking sound angles when initiating contact. One aspect that Rapp excels in is detecting misdirection plays, which was something that Cowboys safety Jeff Heath - and others Dallas Cowboys T-Shirt , for that matter - was routinely confused by when playing the Rams. Unlike Thornhill, Rapp is a very physically aggressive safety who seeks out the contact and backs up that enthusiasm with great leverage when taking on blocks. In the open field, Rapp usually opts for the safer wrap up tackles, but when there’s other defenders nearby, he’ll lay out some big hits. In previous years, Rapp did a tremendous job of using those big hits to knock the ball loose. Similar to Thornhill, though, Rapp doesn’t possess otherworldly speed or athleticism that would make him a viable option at free safety in a single high concept. Rapp has good explosiveness which makes him very effective in shallow zone coverage and in man coverage on tight ends and smaller slot receivers. Rapp has shown the ability to, on occasion Dallas Cowboys Hats , take on those deep safety responsibilities, but relying on him in that role for a full game is not wise. As such, Rapp would work well with Woods in the backfield. Rod Marinelli and Kris Richard liked using Woods as an occasional blitzer this year, and Woods saw a lot more man coverage inside the redzone as well. In those situations, Rapp could function well as the deep safety while Woods slides into the box, but Woods would primarily be the single high safety regardless. Rapp has a lot of great traits that fit the mold of an ideal box safety, especially in Dallas’ scheme. His biggest weakness is the speed and burst, but that might not be enough to deter teams from taking him higher than 58. Custom New York Jets Jerseys
