The Facts: Gallup is doing his best to help fill a void within the Dallas Cowboys' wide receiver corps. The rookie grabbed attention Saturday, which marked the Cowboys' first day of padded practices in training camp, by working with the first-team offense and catching passes from quarterback Dak Prescott. But for all the good on the first day of the weekend, Gallup looked more like a first-year player Sunday with drops during individual and team-related drills.
Diehards Line: Gallup is going to have more ups and downs, but Dallas enters the 2018 regular season with a revamped wide receivers group when considering the team released Dez Bryant in April and traded Ryan Switzer during the draft. While Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams return, the Cowboys added Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson during free agency, and then selected Gallup and Cedrick Wilson, who suffered a shoulder injury Saturday, in the draft. Gallup, in particular, has the opportunity in training camp to earn immediate playing time, and getting in early work with the first-team offense provides a good sign. His progress is worth watching.
