Report: Dallas Cowboys Looking to Trade DE Everson Griffen

    As the heads down the drain for the , it's only natural for speculation to arise as to which players could be on the block for a team that is more likely to finish 2020 in position for a top five pick in the than a playoff berth.

    Well, yesterday the trade block speculation hit full force as Ian Rapoport from reported that the Dallas Cowboys are looking at moving summer .

    The Cowboys are wise to try and get something for Griffen who would be heading to a new team this offseason anyway. The question is can they find a team that is desperate enough for pass-rush help to send a draft pick, any draft pick, the Cowboys' way prior to the .

    Even as up and down as his play has been, you can never have enough pass rush. Everson Griffen's got a of production and a skill set that every team is looking for, even if it's declined somewhat from the player Everson Griffen was in his prime.
