Dallas Cowboys released the 8-year All-Pro Dez Bryant, this offseason, and made entry of newcomers like Tavon Austin, rookie draft picks Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson, to play along with pros like Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley.
Regarding the issue, Cowboys' Dak Prescott made his views clear that the team doesn’t need to replace his production with a single receiver.
"I don't know if any team in the league necessarily needs a No. 1 receiver. It's about getting the ball out, spreading the ball around, keeping the defense on its toes."

Experiencing a great loss after the retirement of tight end Jason Witten, in early May after his 15 seasons, Cowboys signed with Allen Hurns to a 2-year contract in March, this year and also added veteran Deonte Thompson.
Prescott talked about his experience and the growing chemistry with the newcomers as:
"We did a bunch together. I and these young guys have been here before we even started OTAs, getting that timing down so we can get in OTAs and have a good feel for each other and now with the defense in front of us, grow off of that and grow from what we’ve already accomplished."
Allen Hurns: “When I first got here, what surprised me a lot was Dak’s leadership. He’s only in his third year, but he’s a very vocal guy. He runs things. I was very surprised by that. … I don’t think we’ll have a problem with leadership.”
