Troy Aikman: Cowboys won’t miss the Dez Bryant of 2017

Dez Bryant‘s departure has left Dallas with Allen Hurns, Terrance Williams, Cole Beasley, Michael Gallup, Deonte Thompson and Tavon Austin at the position, with the six wideouts expected to share the catches this season.

I think all of them add significant strengths to our offense.
I think you’ll see four or five, even maybe six potentially play in games this year.
So it’ll be fun to watch those guys grow and develop in our system.” Cowboys fans wonder how their team can possibly win without a go-to guy, but Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman doesn’t expect the Cowboys to miss the Bryant of last year.
“No matter who they’ve got coaching the receivers.

But Cleveland could renew its interest next week when vested veteran deals are no longer guaranteed for the entire season.
