3 Players That Could Be Traded By Cowboys
There is still time for Dallas Cowboys and other teams to add more players to the roster and make them even more competitive. Just like any other squad in NFL, America’s Team is always looking for possibilities to improve their lineup, but with draft and free agency over, their options are getting limited.
The only thing left here is to look at other teams’ rosters, and we have three names here, and no, Earl Thomas is not one of those. One more thing that is important for Dallas franchise, is that those guys don’t cost a fortune.
Derrick Kindred – Safety
It seems that coaching staff thinks that their safeties are good enough to compete at the highest level, but adding more names to the squad on that position could be beneficiary. One of those players that could help the team is Derrick Kindred that currently plays for Cleveland.
As a fourth-round pick from 2016, Kindred has a couple more years on his rookie contract. He was good for Browns but had problems with injuries and tough competition on the roster. The situation in Cleveland is such that he might become expendable in case Peppers gets the second safety position behind recently acquired Damarious Randall that will definitely be the #1 option.
Carl Davis – Defensive Tackle
Dallas front office decided against drafting Vita Vea and adding Terrell McClain through free agency. While they do have few options at 3-tech defensive tackle, there aren’t much of options for 1-tech. Both Richard Ash and Brian Price might not be good enough to fully cover that segment, and guys like Maliek Collins, Datone Jones, and Jihad Ward will need to jump in and help.
Carl Davis looks like a good option as he was drafted in 2015 as a third-round pick meaning that his final year on a rookie contract is starting soon. With plenty of good players at that position, Ravens could give him up for a late-round draft pick. While this guy isn’t spectacular and probably won’t be able to produce game-changing moves each and every week, we think that it would be a good addition to Cowboys roster.
Cameron Brate – Tight End
When Jason Witten decided to retire, everyone was quite surprised. After this, number one TE on America’s Team is Geoff Swaim with a total of nine catches in his career which doesn’t sound all that promising. There are few young players that could be the Cowboys future, but they also need someone to lead them during the season that is coming.
Buccaneers decided to shell out $41 million for a six-year deal with Cameron Brate, but O.J. Howard, last year first round pick, had a good season and managed to match Brate’s six touchdown score. Howard is definitely a future of Tampa Bay, and he might be even better than Brate during the 2018 campaign which could be the signal for Buccaneers to send out Cameron Brate. We are pretty sure that Dallas might not want to spend $6.8 million per year on a Buccaneers’ player as that was the figure that was reserved for Witten. On the other hand, Brate is only 26, meaning that he has at least a few more years to play giving America’s Team time to get more players at that position.
