Should the Cowboys Trade for Diontae Johnson?

released some ideas for trades that would transform the league next season. The Cowboys made the list.

They suggested the Cowboys a 2023 second-round pick for the Steelers' . Johnson has not yet signed an extension with the Steelers and will become a at the end of the .

Is he worth a second-round pick? Johnson was a Pro-Bowler last season, catching 107 passes for 1,161 yards and eight touchdowns. That is a very solid year. Well worth what you may find in the . He does not miss a lot of games and is always available.

In my , the Steelers may be rebuilding? retired this , and Pittsburgh will start either Mitchell Trubisky, Mason Rudolph, or rookie first-round pick Kenny Pickett in Week 1. Those guys have big shoes to fill for a guy who will wind up in the .

Dallas has , drafted , and signed Johnson's former teammate, , and the No. 2 receiver is coming off a torn ACL. I would not hate this trade at all. We know the Cowboys' won't lead the league in scoring again, but Johnson would help keep the going.

Now again, this was just something a bleacher put out on Monday, but honestly, the trade makes sense when you look at it from both sides. A Steelers team you figure to be rebuilding getting a second-round pick and can spend it on whomever they like if they don't resign Johnson.

Dallas gets a wideout coming off his best season as a pro. I think it is a win-win for both sides, but we all know outside of when traded for , he hardly pulls the strings on these types of things and always says the roster they have is fine.

Realize when you trade for a guy, you have give him a new contract as well. You probably realize what the WR market is now. Not to mention how the Cowboys value early draft picks (really, ALL draft picks but especially the early ones). 0 chance. This guy would make more than Gallup and then they have to pay Lamb next year. No team pays 3 receivers that kind of money, nor should they……and (again bc I can’t stress enough) a 2nd round pick. Bad article….just click bait and bc it’s so bad, you got me.

I actually think we’re good at receiver, unless the rookie Jalen Tolbert don’t pan out!! I think we could use another depth option, but I think our starters will be fine!! Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t mind trading for Johnson, but I wouldn’t give up a 2nd round pick for a 1 year rental!! And I say rental, cause I don’t think Stephen will give Johnson a second contract, cause he just paid Gallup and he’ll have to pay Lamb at the end of the season!! So I don’t think he’ll wanna have 3 highly paid receivers on the team!! If that was the case then they would have been better off keeping Amari Cooper for a couple million extra a year!! Now if we can get Johnson for a 4th round pick, and play him just this year, I wouldn’t say no to that!! But I don’t see Stephen giving him a second contract, so a second round pick is too much for a receiver we’ll only have for 1 year!!


Make absolutely no sense for the Steelers. They would have ZERO receivers left in their fold. The Cowboys making the move would be a progress stopper for Tolbert.
