A former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver and special teams player is still not happy about how his tenure ended with the franchise.
The Dallas Cowboys selected wide receiver Ryan Switzer with a fourth-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and he made an impact during his rookie campaign as he averaged 8.8 yards per punt return and 25.0 yards per kick return.
Switzer revealed on Twitter on Wednesday night that he’s “still confused” about why the Cowboys traded him to the Raiders. He responded to a fan who posted a photo of Switzer and wondered “what could have been.”
He claims he asked about getting more reps on offense but “never got any answers.”

“Still confuses me why I was traded. I think I was top 5 in both PR & KR. Never did KR in college, didn’t have any pre season that year so I had to learn on the fly. Finished top 3. I asked all season why I wasn’t getting any offensive snaps. Never got any answers,” he wrote on Twitter Wednesday.
Ahead of Switzer’s second season, the Cowboys signed Allen Hurns, traded for Tavon Austin and drafted Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson. Switzer was then traded to the Raiders in exchange for defensive tackle Jihad Ward.
A Cowboys blogger responded to Switzer by stating that there was no longer room for him on the depth chart, but Switzer disagreed with that idea.
Dez Bryant, who was released by Dallas ahead of the 2018 season, seemed to agree with Switzer.
“this is a crazy coincidence because I really was up watching your highlights,” Bryant said. “but you know what the issues was ..”
Dez might be talking about head coach Jason Garrett who he had issues with and has spoken out against several times after his release.
For his career, Switzer appeared in 41 games with 50 receptions for 321 yards and a touchdown. He had 63 kick returns for 1,373 yards, and 67 punt returns for 537 yards and a touchdown.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
