Key Offseason Acquisitions

Anthony Brown, CB; Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S; Amari Cooper, WR (re-signed, five-year, $100 million); Andy Dalton, QB; Cameron Erving, OL; Kai Forbath, K; Blake Jarwin, TE (Re-signed, a three-year deal worth up to $24.25 million); Sean Lee, LB (Re-signing, one-year, $4.5 million); Joe Looney, C/G (Re-signing, a one-year, $2.4375 million); Gerald McCoy, DT; Dontari Poe, DT; Dak Prescott, QB (exclusive franchise tag); Aldon Smith, Edge; Darian Thompson, S (Re-signed); Daryl Worley, CB; Greg Zuerlein, K

It is definitely not a good season when the head coach gets fired, but that is what happened to the Dallas Cowboys after an unexpected 8-8 showing in 2019, with Jason Garrett now out the door and Mike McCarthy brought in to give it a go.

With proven new leadership and the talent Dallas now has on their roster – especially now that much of it has either been re-signed by owner Jerry Jones or given the exclusive franchise tag in the case of Prescott – the idea of turning in another .500 season or worse seems unfathomable.

Then add to that the grade A draft the Cowboys enjoyed where they snagged Oklahoma receiver Cee Dee Lamb, expected to be an instant starter, and Alabama cornerback Trevon Diggs, who adds depth to an already excellent secondary, and it sure seems like it will be a fun 2020 in Arlington.

The 2019 Philadelphia Eagles looked like they were flying into a certain second-place NFC East finish, but the Dallas Cowboys stumbled and so the Eagles took the division but they couldn’t get past the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card Playoff round.

Despite the drastic need for receivers (injuries took many of Wentz’s main targets out for games at a time), the Eagles’ front office mostly used free agency to add depth to the defense, particularly in the secondary.

Philadelphia decided to use the draft to add an instant starter to the receiving room, TCU’s Jalen Reagor, plus they snared a talented backup QB for Wentz, Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts, though, given Wentz’s tendency to get injured at some point in the regular season, Eagles fans could see Hurts sooner rather than later in 2020.

For the third season in a row, the New York Giants missed the NFL playoffs, ending their 2019 with a third-place NFC East finish and the firing of head coach Pat Shurmur, the job now being done by Joe Judge, a former special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach for the New England Patriots.

The Giants’ defense allowed opponents to gain over 375 yards per game, ranked 25th best in the league, so the front office went after some key free agent defensive playmakers including linebacker Blake Martinez, a tackling machine that posted 155 total takedowns in 2019 for Green Bay, second-most in the NFL.

The other biggest goal of the offseason was to find ways to strengthen the offensive line to protect their young quarterback, Jones, and they did that by snagging Andrew Thomas, the outstanding tackle from Georgia who is expected to be an instant starter in 2020.

The 2019 Washington Redskins were the second lousiest team in the league last season, finishing with a 3-13 record and a fourth-place finish in the shockingly miserable NFC East, though that did qualify them for the second overall pick in the draft.

With new head coach Ron Rivera, the Skins are set to slowly rebuild around second-year quarterback Dwayne Haskins, grabbing him some offensive weapons in free agency, including dual-threat running back Peyton Barber and wide receiver Cody Latimer, though both will serve in a backup role to start the season.

The key to Washington’s offseason was to improve their defense, which they did by selecting the best overall athlete in the draft, OSU linebacker Chase Young, the unanimous All-American who is expected to make a huge impact in his first NFL season.
