Aldon Smith made a miraculous return to the NFL after a five-year hiatus when he signed with the Dallas Cowboys a year ago. Mike McCarthy recently stated that he hadn’t ruled out a reunion with the pass rusher, but Smith is now heading to the NFC West as a member of the Seattle Seahawks. Dak Prescott was on a pace beyond 5,000 yards in 2020 before a season-ending ankle injury. Looking to bounce back and earn Comeback Player of the Year, he has the fifth-best odds to win the 2021 MVP award.
WR CeeDee Lamb took the league by storm and established himself as one the best slot receivers in the game as a rookie. That’s not enough for him though, as he plans to be a better version of himself in 2021. Randy Gregory reminded the world what he is capable of doing last season. Now, with Smith going the Seahawks, look for his snaps to increase. How the Cowboys have to hit on a cornerback in the draft, five players who are ready to take their game to the next level in 2021, three “dream fit” first-round selections, and more are covered in this edition of the news and notes.
