Few teams - if any - looked worse in the passing game than the Cowboys in Week 1. Dallas struggled to move the ball down the field with Dak Prescott at quarterback. His wide receivers weren't helping a ton, either.

The Cowboys entered the 2018 season with major question marks at the wide receivers position. Dallas let former star WR Dez Bryant go in the offseason. Veteran tight end Jason Witten retired, too.

An extremely talented wide receiver is reportedly set to hit the market. Will the Cowboys have interest?

The Browns are reportedly set on either trading or releasing star wide receiver Josh Gordon. Cleveland's general manager announced the news tonight.

"For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally and wanted the best for him, but unfortunately we’ve reached a point where we feel it’s best to part ways and move forward. We wish Josh well," Browns GM John Dorsey said tonight.

Cowboys fans have since been discussing the possibility of adding Gordon. Knowing Jerry Jones, it's probably not out of the realm of possibility.

"Assuming no suspension looms, if i'm jerry jones, i'm preparing for the press conference where i talk about how i'm looking forward to turning josh gordon's life around. all the stars seem perfectly aligned for that one," ESPN's Bomani Jones tweeted.

Cowboys reporter Todd Archer, though, doesn't think Dallas should do it. "No, I don’t think the Cowboys should go after him," he tweeted.

The Cowboys have taken risks with players before. In order to take a risk on Gordon, though, they might have to give up an asset. Multiple teams have reportedly reached out to Cleveland about a possible trade.

Stay tuned.
