The Dallas Cowboys need wide receiver help. That much was made clear by their apparent interest in DeVante Parker.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Cowboys wanted to trade for Parker from the Miami Dolphins before the New England Patriots came to swoop in and get the talented wideout. The Pats sent a third-round pick in the process, while also receiving a fifth-rounder alongside the 29-year-old.

With their failed bid, though, the Cowboys remain in the hunt for a wide receiver.

Dallas’ search for wide receiver help comes on the heels of the Amari Cooper trade, which the Cowboys clearly did to save cap space. As reported earlier, parting ways with the longtime roster fixtured such as Cooper, Randy Gregory and La’el Collins allowed the team to have almost $20 million to spend this offseason.

More recently, the Cowboys have been linked with a potential trade for Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks. Unfortunately, Houston is asking for a second-round pick to convince them to part ways with the 28-year-old–a major factor that could stop Dallas from acquiring him.

According to the rumor, the Cowboys don’t see Cooks as a No. 1 option on wide receiver, so using a second-rounder to land him might be too much. Besides, it doesn’t make sense for them to send out a massive draft capital after that effort of trading Cooper to the Cleveland Brown for a fifth round pick.

Devante Parker would have certainly been a nice addition for the Cowboys. While he is also not a true no. 1 wideout, he knows his role and would have provided them with some depth at the position while they look for a primary option.
