NFL Rumors: Could Former Giants WR David Douglas Be Picked Up by the Dallas Cowboys?
Undrafted rookie wide receiver David Douglas turned heads this summer with his surprisingly exceptional performance in New York Giants camp. Now that the 23-year-old has been cut, it is likely many teams will show interest in adding them to their roster; one of those teams could very possibly be the Dallas Cowboys.
According to ESPNDallas.com’s Calvin Watkins, the Giants’ divisional foe may have interest in Douglas.
Douglas has impressed with stellar special teams play and some terrific catches in practice. He caught just one pass for 23 yards in the preseason for the Giants during the team’s third game against the Chicago Bears.
The Giants coaches enjoyed what they saw from the 6’1”, 205-pound receiver, but their roster was already chocked full of receiving talent that simply couldn’t add another body.
Douglas is an outstanding athlete, boasting favorable size, 4.4 speed and has shown much potential for improvement.
In Dallas, the Cowboys are currently stacked with six receivers on the roster, but much of the position’s players are marred by uncertainty. Miles Austin has struggled mightily with injuries over the past two seasons and the Cowboys are in need of a No. 3 receiver option with the departure of breakout star Laurent Robinson to the Jacksonville Jaguars in the offseason.
With blossoming talent potentially worth seeing up close and some knowledge of the Giants’ offensive and defensive schemes, the Cowboys could swoop in to reap all the benefits the rookie may bring along with him. By Wednesday’s opener between the Giants and Cowboys, Douglas may just find himself on the opposite side of the field from where he had hoped to be on September 5th. Stranger things have happened.
