Cowboys Kick Returner Looking For More Offensive Chances In 2023

He's a very capable kick returner.

However, Dallas Cowboys KaVontae Turpin is looking for more offensive chances in 2023.

After being named the MVP of the USFL in 2022, Turpin signed a three-year deal with the Cowboys. 

He then went on to make the Pro Bowl this past season as a kick returner.

However, he only played a total of 62 snaps on offense, rushing just three times for 17 yards and catching one of two targets for nine yards.

"They are going to try and get me on the offense and try to make guys respect me more on both sides of the ball," Turpin said. "I'm going into training camp, I'm basically trying to show them that they have no choice but to use me on offense."

The twenty-six-year-old is determined to prove his worth during training camp and earn more playing time, but at just 5-foot-9 and 153 pounds, he may be best suited for specialized offensive packages rather than a full-time offensive role.

That being said, he is a very athletic player, so it would not be the most surprising thing to see him carve out a larger role for himself in 2023.

It also helps his cause that both Noah Brown and T.Y. Hilton are slated to become free agents. Photo Credit: Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports
