Trysten Hill was a second round pick of the Cowboys in the 2019 NFL Draft and did not show much as a rookie. He played in just seven games and finished with five tackles. Entering 2020 training camp, Hill’s future with the team could be up in the air.
Dallas signed Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe in the offseason. They also drafted Neville Gallimore in the third round of April’s draft. Unfortunately, McCoy suffered a torn ACL and this led the Cowboys to release him via the injury waiver in his contract.
This still does not lead Hill to a starting spot as the Cowboys added Everson Griffen last week. It just seems as though the Cowboys are doing whatever they can to keep Hill from gaining significant playing time in year two.
The current coaching staff does not feel like Hill will be a major contributor this season. It would not be surprising to see them trade Hill away prior to Week 1. He is just 22-years old and has plenty of time left in his career. A change of scenery and scheme could be good for the young defensive tackle.
