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.

Cameron Wake

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?

    Yes I do think Dallas should trade for a experience pass rusher,to put the defense over the top.”Jimmy Johnson quote defense win championships”(How Bout Them Cowboys)

    • Brian Martin

      BlackMoses, I would like to see them trade for a pass rusher, but with Morris Claiborne’s injury, cornerback might be more of a concern. As much as I would like to see a trade, I kind of doubt the Cowboys make one.

  • Marlon Westbrook

    Yes I hope we make a trade tonight or tomorrow please cowboy’s make a move.

    • Brian Martin

      Marlon, I’m hopeful that the Cowboys make a move, but I’m thinking it’s going to be unlikely they do anything.

  • Tommy

    as long as compensation is 5th round or below, getting either wake or young would help. Gregory is not coming back in 2016

    • Brian Martin

      Tommy, the door hasn’t been completely closed on Randy Gregory’s return just yet. He is working out at the Cowboys facility, but there is no way of knowing what kind of shape he will be in once he is able to return. And I agree with you, I wouldn’t use more than a fifth round draft pick for an aging pass rusher such as Willie Young or Cameron Wake.

  • Willie Duncan

    I think they should push for Joe Haden they really need a better cornerback we got decent ones but we can use him now.

    • Brian Martin

      Willie, I’m really disappointed they didn’t make a move to try to address the depth that CB. Maybe they know something we don’t.

  • Willie Duncan

    Cowboys need to get Joe Haden our defense need a little help in the backfield. but if they can get another pass rusher that will be a bonus.

    • Brian Martin

      Willie, I’m really surprised the Cowboys did make a move before the trade deadline. They could’ve used some help in their secondary and their pass rush.

  • Quinton

    Yes, Cowboys need to address either pass rushing issue or corner issues. Jaden , Young and Wake are all good prospects

    • Brian Martin

      Quinton, I was genuinely surprised the Cowboys didn’t do anything before the trade deadline. With the way the team is playing this year, I would’ve thought they would have been all in and tried to improve some of their weak areas via trade.
