According to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas News, a Cowboys official on Wednesday gave a "terse response" that "closed the door on the notion, dismissing the possibility out of hand."
Even as Gallup, a third-round draft pick out of Colorado State in 2018, is having a quieter year, the team is standing behind their third-year receiver. Coming off a 1,107-yard, six-touchdown season, he has 19 receptions for 371 yards and one touchdown from 36 targets through seven appearances.
The 24-year-old got the start for the Cowboys through their first six games, but he caught just two of six targets in Week 6 and missed both balls thrown in his direction during the team's 25-3 loss to Washington.
However, Gehlken wrote that the Cowboys are inspired to keep him around, chalking the poor statistics up to a miserable situation in Dallas, where the team could start its third-string quarterback alongside a weakened offensive line.
Gehlken noted that Gallup, who is in the third year of his rookie contract, is owed $920,000 next season and that the price tag "makes the Cowboys less inclined to move him" from his spot alongside Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.
