In the midst of a three-game losing skid, the Dallas Cowboys could look to make a midseason trade to address one of these five positions of need on their roster.

At this point last season, the Dallas Cowboys had a record of 3-3. Sound familiar? The Cowboys are in the exact same position in 2019. Last year, Dallas flip-flopped wins and losses until Week Seven when they lost two games back-to-back ending the first half of their season with a disappointing 3-5 record.

The team’s poor performance prompted two major moves by the Cowboys’ brass during their Week Eight bye. Dallas fired offensive line coach Paul Alexander, promoting former player Marc Colombo to the position.

And the Cowboys traded their first-round selection in 2019 to the Oakland Raiders for Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper. Those moves proved to be the catalyst for change in Big D leading America’s Team to go on a five-game winning streak, ending the season with a 10-6 record, winning the NFC East and thus securing themselves a spot in the playoffs.

The Cowboys now find themselves in a similar situation, although the path was quite different. Dallas started this season winning their first three games and touted as one of the top teams in the NFC. Then they lost their last three games, the worst of which happened just last Sunday to a winless New York Jets’ squad.

Dallas has reached rock bottom but has still retained its lead in the NFC East division. But their upcoming matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday night could change that. With the Cowboys’ bye week coming up afterward, Dallas could look to make some moves in order to rekindle their previous winning streak.

With that in mind, and in no particular order, here are five positions of need we believe the Dallas Cowboys could look to address in the coming weeks via trade.
