The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the better teams in the NFL thus far this season and they only improve as the season goes on. While their defense has been excellent, the offense has suffered some stagnation at times, but that could be traced back to the injuries they have had to overcome.

Dak Prescott has started only three games at quarterback after injuring his thumb in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cooper Rush did great filling in for him, managing the game about as well as the team could have asked for.

With Prescott back in the lineup, things should open up for everyone else. Stacking the box to stop Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard is no longer an option as Prescott will carve up opposing defenses through the air.

Dallas has a solid group of pass catchers with wide receivers CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, and tight end Dalton Shultz. Noah Brown has been great at picking up the slack as Gallup continues working his way back from the ACL injury he suffered near the end of last season.

Could the Cowboys add another pass catcher to the mix? They were reportedly close to acquiring Brandin Cooks from the Houston Texans ahead of the trade deadline but his salary complicated things.

With the deadline past, the Cowboys still have one player they can target to upgrade the wide receiver position; Odell Beckham Jr. Beckham is recovering from an ACL injury suffered during the Super Bowl while playing for the Los Angeles Rams in February. He is expected to receive full clearance later this week and the recruitment process is underway.

Players have been reaching out to Beckham throughout the season to join their team and the latest to jump into the fray is linebacker Micah Parsons. Parsons took to Twitter to reach out to the former All-Pro about joining Dallas.

It will certainly take some convincing from Parsons and the Cowboys to get Beckham to sign a deal with the franchise. He has no shortage of suitors as his first NFL team, the New York Giants, have been linked to him along with the Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and Rams.
