Cleveland Browns Cheap Wide Receiver Option No. 3: Cedrick Wilson
When it comes to Dallas Cowboys receivers, you’re likely going to think of Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup. Unless you’ve been keeping up with that team this season, you likely won’t think of Cedrick Wilson, who has been fantastic for the Cowboys this season.
Filling in for the “big three” receivers due to injury or Covid, Wilson has caught the eye of many, especially a team like the Cleveland Browns, who could look to acquire him in the offseason should Dallas let him slip away.
In 16 games this season, Wilson has caught 45 of his 61 targets for 602 yards and six touchdowns. To put that into perspective, Jarvis Landry leads the Browns with 52 catches and Donovan Peoples-Jones leads the team with 597 receiving yards. If DPJ can continue to develop into the player many think he can, Wilson will be a nice player to put alongside DPJ.
Wilson had a great two years at Boise State, racking up 139 receptions for 2,640 yards and 18 touchdowns. That is incredible for only playing two collegiate seasons. It should be of no surprise that Wilson is excelling now that he is getting an opportunity to contribute.
Hopefully, for the Browns, he comes to Cleveland next season and picks up where he leaves off once the Cowboys postseason finishes, whether it be as the Super Bowl winner or otherwise.
