The Dallas Cowboys will now have at least one new wide receiver after Amari Cooper was traded to the Cleveland Browns. It may not be the one that most people believe it to be.
ProFootballTalk reports that Simi Fehoko, second-year wide receiver, has been receiving first-team reps from CeeDee lamb in OTAs this Week. This comes after wide receivers James Washington, Michael Gallup and Jalen Turbert were all injured.
Dak Prescott, the Cowboys’ first-team offense, might help him secure his place on the final 53-man roster. He might even get more reps on offense in 2022.
Fehoko was a rookie in 2013 and saw only seven offensive snaps. He didn’t get one target. He has been making body changes at Mike McCarthy’s request to be a more hybrid receiver/tightener.

Simi Fehoko, a Stanford wide receiver who set school records and was awarded First-Team All Big 12 honors in 2020, was a star. He continued that with a strong Scouting Combine, and ended up being selected by the Dallas Cowboys fifth round in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Cowboys had a stacked receiver last year so the rookie was relegated to special teams.
Fehoko will likely be given more special team jobs in 2022. But, perhaps this is the best place to start on the offensive side.
