It doesn’t sound like the Dallas Cowboys will be working out a contract extension with wide receiver Michael Gallup.
According to Dallas Morning News reporter Michael Gehlken, the Cowboys plan on letting Gallup play out the season.
Of course, that’s what the Cowboys did with Dak Prescott. The end result: a four-year, $160 million new contract this past offseason.
“Michael Gallup is among the Cowboys players expected to play out the final season of contract, sources said. No preseason extensions planned. This is a prove-it year for many — and all but certainly the last of the Amari Cooper-Gallup-CeeDee Lamb trio,” he reports.

Of course, the Gallup situation is not that similar to the Prescott situation. The Cowboys have several talented wide receivers. Losing Gallup would not nearly be as costly as losing Prescott.
Still, fans wish the Cowboys could have been more proactive with Gallup. Others believe this is probably the right decision. Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:
“Guessing they look at Lael and Jaylon as the recent examples of these situations and shy away. That being said I’d certainly prefer to re-sign Gallup at 10-12 a year as opposed to continuing to pat Amari 20 a year to be our WR2,” one fan tweeted.
“Unpopular opinion but I prefer to keep Gallup and trade Amari for a haul. Younger, less injury prone, can sign him for less,” another fan suggested.
“Amari needs to stay healthy and produce #1 wr money or he will be the one to go. Gallup can be signed for half the money,” another fan wrote.
It’s a big year for the Cowboys, Gallup included.
Dallas will open the 2021 season on Thursday, Sept. 9 against Tampa Bay.
