One of the top GM candidates who hasn’t been mentioned much is #Cowboys VP of Player Personnel Will McClay. From what I understand, he’s expected to stay in Dallas, with the team closing in on a deal to keep him. A major move coming for the Cowboys.

McClay has been with Cowboys since 2009 McClay began his executive career in pro scouting coordination before moving up to vice-president of player personnel.
McClay did an outstanding job, considering the talent of this Cowboys roster.
Over the years, the Cowboys have drafted many stars, including Trevon Diggs and Ezekiel Elliott, CeeDee lamb, Micah Parsons, Dak Prescott, and Micah Parsons. McClay deserves a large portion of the credit for these picks.
