Tampa Bay receiver Keyshawn Johnson has agreed to a four-year, $20 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys, the player's agent told SportsLine.com's Jay Glazer on Wednesday.


i guess thats good news for dallas fans...now they can focus on RB or QB...i think both teams got what they wanted.

:-S

I would have worked on some other aspects of the Cowboys before "improving" their receiving corps.

Maybe Keyshawn will perform like he did in his 'ol Parcells days?

Keyshaw got another chance to justify that first pick overall in 1996 ahead of Marvin Harrison, Eric Moulds and Amani Toomer was not a major blunder.

Maybe Parcells will get out of Keyshaw what he saw in him while drafting him.

Galloway on the other hand acquired by Cowboys from Seattle for two first round draft picks?

Looks like a trade of two overpaid underachievers to me.

...Which turned out to be Shaun Alexander and Steve Hutchinson - one of the few good trades Seattle's made.

well neither reciever is worth as much as there paid IMO but i think Keyshawn still has more upside than Galloway.

There is one slight snag however. Galloway isn't liking the contract being offered up just yet. Till that is worked out, there ain't no deal.

Interesting, these WR trades for picks really make me wonder...
Is TO really worth no more than a second rounder? Is Keyshawn really no more valuable than a fifth or sixth rounder? I know there are questions regarding these guy's attitudes and disruptive behavior, but I think both deals are ultimately steals. Baltimore gets probably a top 5 wideout (as far as talent), and Dallas gets one of the top ten possession recievers in the NFL. Keyshawn probably won't put up big numbers, but he should be solid and well worth an unproven fifth or sixth round pick. Throw TO in this years draft, even with all the rookie reciever talent, and is he seriously not a first rounder.
Anyhow, what does Dallas now do with their WR's - Glenn,Galloway, Bryant, Keyshawn? Is anyone familiar with the contract and cap situations of the Dallas wideouts, and have any idea who may be traded or possibly cut? I'm assuming Galloway is on the block.

I've read before that Atlanta was interesting in trading a draft pick for Galloway.

...Having a solid supply of WRs isn't a bad problem to have, though.
