Though free agency has been the of attention for those who follow, , and analyze the , the market has been very active over the last week as well. From to to , player movement has been at a frenzied pace. With the acquisition of the aforementioned Vernon from the , they've made former pick Emmanuel Ogbah available on the trade market.

Per a report from of 105.3 The Fan, The are looking into adding Ogbah to their .

According to Jon Machota if the , the Cowboys had Ogbah in their sites in 2016, but Cleveland took him just a few picks before the Cowboys selected with their second round pick that year.

Ogbah, hasn't really been as productive as hoped for the Browns. His career high in , which he set his rookie season was 5.5. In 2017, he only had four sacks and then bottomed out last season with three sacks.

The Dallas Cowboys certainly could use another with 's future up in the air. His indefinite could be lifted prior to the season or it could impact his availability for the . Nobody knows how this is going to play out.

You can never have to many rushers and if the Cleveland Browns are making him available, the Dallas Cowboys need to make a call.

The “Hot Boyz” could use an infusion of new blood within their ranks and Ogbah fits the bill perfectly. Send Cleveland a fourth or pick and let's put him to work on the right side of the defensive line.
