Along with the coordinator change, the organization’s recent personnel moves dictate an adjustment. With receiving tight end Coby Fleener out of the picture and 2015 first-round draft pick Dorsett healthy, it behooves Chudzinski to take advantage with a three wide-receiver attack.
Around The NFL’s Making the Leap series had already identified Moncrief’s as the NFL’s most likely breakout candidate at wide receiver. The transition to three wide receivers as the base offense should allow Dorsett the opportunity for a featured role in his own right.
Chudzinki recently noted that Dorsett has the ability to be a “big-time playmaker,” a sentiment that was pervasive among the Colts’ offensive coaches last summer.
Don’t let Andrew Luck’s disappointing, injury-ravaged 2015 season obscure this offense’s potential. With Moncrief and Dorsett playing full-time snaps, Luck is fully capable of returning to the 2014 heights which saw him lead the NFL in touchdowns while finishing third in passing yards.
The Cowboys left Big D for Oxnard, Calif. on Thursday in anticipation for the start of training camp, but one notable player wasn’t with them.
Suspended linebacker Rolando McClain was not on the team’s charter to the Golden State, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday. The Cowboys do not yet have an explanation for his absence.
McClain was suspended 10 games in June for violating the NFL’s policy against substances of abuse. He was also suspended four games for violating the same policy to start the 2015 season.
The Vikings have built their organization the right way. Their general manager Rick Spielman has been with the team since 2006. Over the last two years, he’s helped transform the roster to fit coach Mike Zimmer’s feisty personality. They are cresting as a budding NFC superpower just in time to move into their new stadium.
