BREAKING: WR Switzer Being Traded to Oakland Raiders for DT Ward

A very unexpected trade is taking place right now for the Dallas Cowboys. Wide Receiver Ryan Switzer, who was drafted just a year ago, is being traded to the Oakland Raiders.

Cowboys are trading WR Ryan Switzer to the #Raiders, per @SlaterNFL and me.

The Cowboys have drafted two wide receivers during the 2018 NFL Draft and traded for former Rams’ WR Tavon Austin.

Although very unexpected, it’s an understandable move from Dallas. The WR room is set to be loaded and there might be more moves coming for the position.

In exchange, the Cowboys get their DT. Jihad Ward was a second round draft pick in 2016 and comes in to fill a pressing need for the team.

Couple thoughts here: 1. I’d rather not deal away one of the younger, cheaper WRs. I was encouraged by what Switzer showed in Nov-Dec. 2. Unfortunately, you have to deal away something valuable to get something valuable. @dpbrugler had a 3rd-round grade on Jihad Ward.

It’s hard to imagine what Cowboys Nation’s reaction will be for this one. We’ll continue to update you at Inside The Star.
