The Dallas Cowboys have had an eventful offseason, but for the wrong reasons.
Unfortunately, they’ve lost more than they gained.
Outside linebacker Randy Gregory chose to sign with the Denver Broncos even if his return to Dallas was initially announced.
They also lost offensive linemen La’el Collins to the Cincinnati Bengals and Connor Williams to the Miami Dolphins.
Wide receiver Cedrick Wilson also joined Williams in Miami.
But the biggest news of all is Amari Cooper‘s departure from Dallas to the Cleveland Browns.
The Cowboys thought that they would be better off without their top wide receiver who had a down year in 2021.
Put all those transactions into consideration and it’s easy to understand why the Cowboys won’t have a chance to acquire an All-Pro linebacker.

Pro Football Focus reports that the Cowboys are not in the running for Bobby Wagner anymore, per team vice president Stephen Jones.
What Might Have Been For The Cowboys
Wagner could have filled Gregory’s position if he signed with Dallas.
But with the Cowboys out in the running, they will have to look elsewhere to find another linebacker.
The former Seattle Seahawks defensive ace could have been a huge addition, especially after an impressive 2021 season.
Wagner played 16 games for Seattle and had a career best 170 total tackles to go with three tackles for losses and an interception.
As of writing, the Baltimore Ravens seem to be the frontrunner to sign the six-time First-Team All-Pro and eight-time Pro Bowler.
However, Wagner could have made a ton of difference, especially in defending short to intermediate passes.
