These rumors would be traveling a lot farther if the Cowboys had not selected multiple defensive backs during the draft. Still, the team could use a fiery and productive veteran to help solidify this secondary.
The Seahawks have two interesting players that could be dealt but should cost a pretty penny. Safety Kam Chancellor and cornerback Richard Sherman are some of the most productive defensive backs in the NFL.

Sherman has been the favorite in terms of trade talks especially considering his other top landing spots appear to be the Dallas Cowboys or the New England Patriots. Sherman would instantly be appreciated with Dallas and would be the most meaningful player traded to the team in quite some time.
The Seahawks drafted four defensive backs and are likely looking for the next members of the “Legion of Boom”. Sherman is about to turn 30 and will likely be playing for another team before his career is over. It would not be all that shocking to see him head to Dallas.
The real shock would be if somehow the Cowboys could land Kam Chancellor who would completely change this secondary. He hits hard, moves fast, and is capable of being a deadly weapon in the Cowboys defensive scheme.
His age also makes him a ticking clock in terms of time left on the Seahawks roster, so it will be only a matter of time before he is traded or hits free agency. Butler has been the Patriots trade bait all offseason and only has one year left on his deal, so it is almost certain he will not get paid by New England.
He could be an option for the Cowboys but the Patriots may be asking for too much in return to officially get anything done. Rhodes is an interesting name thanks to his contract, but he will likely get a long-term extension, he is still too young to give up.
Pryor is an interesting name because he has failed to impress, but so has the rest of the Jets organization. He is still a suitable safety and can hit with the best of them, with some polish he could be a steal for his next organization.
