The Dallas Cowboys have been making some major moves this off-season including cutting long-time starting running back Ezekiel Elliot. They also added a new wide receiver to their roster to help CeeDee Lamb. But are the Cowboys looking to do something bigger on the trade front?
According to one NFL Insider Bill Barnwell, the Cowboys may be ready to trade for Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry.
“The Cowboys could look toward a market that still includes Leonard Fournette, Latavius Murray and Kareem Hunt unsigned. There’s also a chance expensive veterans such as Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook could be released after the draft. Dallas could add a rookie in April’s draft, but Pollard’s uncertain status for Week 1 leads me to believe the team would probably prefer to have a more experienced back on the roster,” Barnwell writes.
Realistically, this trade probably won’t happen because it would take a lot for the Cowboys to get Henry including trading probably their No. 1 draft choices for the next few seasons but it might be worth it to get Henry.
But the likely scenario is the Cowboys find another running back in the upcoming draft like Texas running back Bjan Robinson who is high on the Cowboys draft list.
