Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup is considered as one of the notable talents in the upcoming free agency class in the 2022 offseason. His four-year, rookie contract signed back in 2018 has already ended which will officially make him an unrestricted free agent come March 16.

The 25-year-old has always been a staple in the Cowboys offense since his rookie year though he eventually regressed after his breakout campaign in 2019. To add to his woes, he also suffered a season-ending torn ACL injury in Week 17 of the previous season which will keep him sidelined for the foreseeable future. In 2021, he only produced 445 receiving yards on 35 receptions and two touchdowns in nine games played.

Given the emergence of a younger pass-catcher in CeeDee Lamb, it might be best for him to explore his options and seek a change in scenery for the upcoming offseason. Fortunately for Gallup, he has already proven that he can be an impact player on the field and many teams would still pursue his services even with his current injury.

Hopefully, playing for a new squad will allow him to land a bigger role and regain his previous form on the field sooner than later. With that said, here are the three best landing spots for Michael Gallup in the upcoming 2022 NFL offseason.

Michael Gallup Free Agency Landing Spots

3. Las Vegas Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders’ depth on offense took a major hit in the 2021 season primarily due to the incident involving Henry Ruggs III. Tight end Darren Waller also missed time after sustaining back and knee injuries through the course of the season.

Given the situation, the Raiders were forced to rely on young receivers in Zay Jones and Bryan Edwards. They also witnessed a career season from Hunter Renfrow who emerged as Derek Carr’s top target in 2021.

Despite all those names, the Raiders still need a dependable target who can help maximize this offense moving forward. They are currently in a favorable position as they have around $18.9 million left in salary-cap space to add another weapon on offense.

In this case, they can use that money to acquire Michael Gallup who has already shown his level of talent and is aiming to have a fresh start in his career. If they manage to get a productive season out of him then the Raiders might have a good chance of finally making it to the playoffs this time around.

2. New England Patriots

Another team that is in dire need of a significant threat on the wings would be the New England Patriots. They previously held the No. 1 spot in the AFC back in November 2021 though they eventually fell apart due to the failures of their offensive unit.

Additionally, Bill Belichick didn’t get any solid production from his receivers, save for Jakobi Meyers and Kendrick Bourne. Surely enough, they would need to make moves in order to stretch the $8 million that they currently have in salary-cap space in order to acquire better weapons on offense.

If they manage to do so then they can look to add a downfield threat in Michael Gallup which will potentially allow Mac Jones to throw more deep balls next season. Moreover, having a reliable option on the field will also help the young QB increase his chances of achieving his full potential early in his career.

Ultimately, Gallup’s route-running skills and ability to gain separation from his defenders will surely come in handy for a Patriots side that is looking to have a deeper playoff run next season.

1. Indianapolis Colts

There is no denying that the Indianapolis Colts have a solid offensive core led by running back Jonathan Taylor and wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. However, a murky future lies ahead of the group as veteran T.Y. Hilton remains undecided whether to play or retire next season.

Another pass-catcher in Ashton Dulin is set to be a restricted free agent with no certainty of being brought back to Indianapolis in 2022. Meanwhile, Parris Campbell has failed to remain healthy for the third consecutive year as he only suited up in six games for a total of 162 yards and a touchdown.

With a depleted receivers room, the Colts must maximize the $35.8 million salary-cap space that they have and make a huge splash at an offensive threat who can help Carson Wentz next season. Michael Gallup might just be that missing piece for them who can play alongside Pittman Jr. and form a potent pass-catching duo for the team.

Hopefully, the arrival of the former Cowboy will be enough to elevate the Colts’ offense and help them avoid another letdown in their bid for a playoff spot next season.
