Cowboys Headlines - 3 Players The Dallas Cowboys Should Trade For

The Dallas Cowboys haven't really shown any indication that they are interested in being active before the trade deadline ends Tuesday, November 1 at 4 PM ET, but that doesn't mean they're not exploring their options.

The Cowboys are currently sitting at 6-1 and are in first place in the NFC East division with a two-game lead over their division rivals. They look to be one of the best teams in the entire NFL and could make a deep playoff run.

America's Team has done an outstanding job of the past few seasons building the roster through the draft and avoided spending money on high-priced veteran free agents. This year's squad seems to have the perfect mix of young talent with veteran experience/leadership because of that philosophy.

Despite the teams success, there are still some big holes on the roster that could make this team even more dangerous and possibly turn them into a Super Bowl favorite.

Below are three players I think the Dallas Cowboys should consider trading for if they are serious about winning it all in 2016.

Joe Haden

Cowboys Headlines - 3 Players The Dallas Cowboys Should Trade For 1The Cleveland Browns have reportedly put Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden on the trade market, and I think the Dallas Cowboys should seriously consider making a trade for him before the trade deadline ends.

Haden is one of the league's top CBs when healthy, but has struggled with injuries the past couple of years. He only appeared in five games in 2015 due to concussions, but he is just 27 years old and would instantly upgrade the Cowboys secondary.

Morris Claiborne has been the Cowboys best CB, but it is feared that he has suffered a sports hernia and could possibly miss the rest of the 2016 season. That would put the secondary and the rest of the defense in a bind.

Now, I don't know what the Browns would want as compensation, but I think the Cowboys should definitely find out.

It's no secret that the Dallas Cowboys have had trouble pressuring the opposing quarterbacks and could use help to improve their pass rush.

DeMarcus Lawrence is still getting his feet under him after serving his four-game suspension, and he could use some help getting to the QB.

Wake is 34 years old and currently only has three quarterback sacks and one forced fumble, but he could come in and help the Cowboys defense harass quarterbacks.

It's unlikely that the Miami Dolphins make a push for the playoffs, so they could be willing to part with an aging veteran defensive end.

The Dolphins asking price shouldn't be too expensive and that could be of interest to the Cowboys.

Willie Young

Cowboys Headlines - 3 Players The Dallas Cowboys Should Trade For 3Willie Young is another defensive end that could help the Cowboys pass rush.

He is 31 years old and currently has six quarterback sacks and one forced fumble in 2016.

The Chicago Bears are one of the worst teams in the league and could be willing to part with one of their best pass rushers, especially with rookie defensive end Leonard Floyd showing so much promise.

The Cowboys should already know plenty about Young since they have already played against the Bears and scouted him prior to the matchup.

I honestly think that this would be a good trade for the Cowboys to make, but again it depends on the asking price.

Do you think the Dallas Cowboys should trade for any of these players?

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

BREAKING: Cowboys Sign Ex-Packers WR Randall Cobb

According to multiple sources, the Dallas Cowboys have signed former Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Randall Cobb to a one-year deal to help bolster their depth at the WR position and potentially become Cole Beasley's replacement.

Cowboys are giving former Packers' WR Randall Cobb a one-year, $5 million deal, per source. https://t.co/8KWFPjSP8T

The Dallas Cowboys met with Randall Cobb earlier this week, but he eventually left Dallas without a contract. He must've had a change of heart or just needed time to ponder the Cowboys offer, but regardless of what transpired in that short time he is now part of America's Team.

During his time with the Packers, Cobb accumulated 470 receptions for 5,524 receiving yards and 41 touchdowns. The eight-year veteran will now be expected to replace some of Cole Beasley's production out of the slot for the Dallas Cowboys.

After years of watching Beasley as the Cowboys slot WR, it will be really interesting to see Randall Cobb in that role. He's not as quick twitched as No. 11, but can be just as dangerous due to his ability to be more of a down the field receiver. He also brings added value in the return game and could compete with Tavon Austin to become the return specialist.

This could mean the Cowboys forgo drafting a wide receiver early in the 2019 NFL Draft, but I wouldn't put it past them. Regardless of what happens, this is an excellent addition.

REPORT: Dallas Cowboys Re-sign Long Snapper L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur

L.P. Ladouceur is returning for his 15th season as the Cowboys' long snapper. The veteran free agent was re-signed by Dalals today to a one-year deal.

Thanks to Jason Witten's one-year sabbatical with Monday Night Football, Ladouceur has now been with the Cowboys for more consecutive seasons than any current player. He just turned 38 last week, but Louis-Philippe remains one of the top long snappers in football.

Todd Archer on Twitter

The Cowboys have signed long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur to a one-year deal worth $1.03 million and $90,000 in bonus money, but he will count $735,000 against the cap. This will be Ladouceur's 15th season with the Cowboys, tying Ed "Too Tall" Jones, Mark... https://t.co/2iDsi6RX7e

Retaining Ladouceur is an underrated move for the Cowboys given their situation at kicker.

Brett Maher was only 80% accurate overall on field goals last year. The team could be considering an upgrade in free agency.

Whether they bring Maher back or try someone new, having a long snapper with Ladouceur's performance perfection will make things much easier for them.

REPORT: Cowboys Negotiating Trade with Dolphins for DE Robert Quinn

Robert Quinn

According to a report just minutes ago, the Dallas Cowboys are visiting with Miami Dolphins' Defensive End Robert Quinn today as part of a possible trade. Miami is looking for a trade partner to try to get something back for Quinn before making him a salary cap casualty.

Quinn is in the final year of his contract and is set to count $12.9 million against the Dolphins' salary cap. Most of that is his base salary of $11.8 million, which Miami is reportedly willing to pay part of to help facilitate a trade.

Tom Pelissero on Twitter

Robert Quinn was spotted today on his way to visit the #Cowboys, who are in trade talks with the #Dolphins for the veteran DE, sources say. Quinn would need to agree to any deal. So, this is another step in the process, with a Dallas team that obviously needs pass rush.

The Cowboys need DE help with DeMarcus Lawrence's contract still unresolved and Randy Gregory now indefinitely suspended for another drug policy violation. They signed Kerry Hyder from the Lions yesterday, but he isn't a proven commodity like Quinn.

Turning 29 in May, Robert Quinn is a two-time Pro Bowler and former first-round pick of the Rams. He hasn't had the same production in recent years but still had 6.5 sacks for Miami in 2018 and 8.5 the prior year with Los Angeles.

Ever the bargain shoppers these days, Dallas is probably hoping to get Quinn for late-round draft pick or perhaps a pick swap.
