LeSean McCoy: “I think the Cowboys wide receiving corps is solid. If I looked at all the wide receiver groups in the league they would be in that top 6 range. They have an All-Pro number one receiver in CeeDee Lamb, and then you bring in Brandin Cooks, who is going to be a really good and productive number two wide receiver. Then their third wide receiver who they paid money to [Michael Gallup]. Where would D-Hop fit in at? You can put him in the slot, you can put him outside, but he has that number one type talent and number one tag on him, and if you have two number ones and add Brandin Cooks and then have a paid Michael Gallup, how is that going to be? When players go to different teams you talk about the seats in that room. One chair is going to CeeDee Lamb. When a dude like D-Hop comes, he needs one of those chairs as a number one. I don’t see a fit for the Cowboys. D-Hop is a great player I just think he needs to go to the right team where they’re comfortable with getting a big-time player who is going to demand the ball. If D-Hop goes there and isn’t getting utilized the way he should, it’ll be like ‘why is he even here?’ The reason they shipped off Amari Cooper is because CeeDee Lamb is really good. You don’t want to mess up the chemistry by bringing in a big-time name like D-Hop.” (Full Segment Above)
Watch LeSean McCoy of FS1’s ‘Speak’ explain why he doesn’t think All-Pro free agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins would be a good fit with the Dallas Cowboys despite the 31-year-old seemingly having obvious appeal to the league’s most glamorous franchise led by star-hungry owner Jerry Jones.
Check out the segment above as McCoy details why he thinks Dallas shouldn’t risk damaging the chemistry of the wide receiver room in Dallas and risk alienating CeeDee Lamb with the attention Hopkins would garner on and off the field.
