Deebo Samuel changed the game in 2021 with San Francisco. He offered a hybrid role that combined the best attributes of wide receivers and running backs. Dallas watched this with curious eyes and hope that Pollard can fill a similar role. Amari Cooper left during the offseason so there’s a chance for him to explode.
Ezekiel Elliot is still the main man in Dallas for better or for worse. But Pollard will enjoy more opportunities because Cooper isn’t standing in his way. He played in 15 games in 2021 but didn’t start one. Now there’s a chance that he’ll have a breakout year and this will please the fans (via Sporting News).
