So with a few position groups that are bloated, what kind of compensation can the Dallas Cowboys look to get back other than late-round selections?

I have my eye on a few positions that need some assistance. I have little doubt that Tyler Biadasz is going to become the next starting center for the Dallas Cowboys and I think he is going to be really good. I have question marks behind him as I have zero clues or confidence that the backup center is already on the roster.

Current Bengals backup center and former first-round pick Billy Price could use a change of scenery but I doubt the Bengals would give up on this former first-rounder so early especially since injuries have derailed the opening portion of his career.

The Kansas City Chiefs current incumbent at center Austin Blythe currently holds the position over incoming rookie Creed Humphrey but with having a starter getting paid under $1 million, it is hard to envision Kansas City moving on from him.

This takes me to New England. The Patriots signed away former Miami center Ted Karras this offseason yet also welcomed back former starter David Andrews. The team also employs backup center James Ferentz who has started four games for the team the past two seasons.

Any one of these options would be a welcome addition to the team although I am always wary when teams trade with the New England Patriots.

Guard and defensive tackle, namely the one technique, are other positions the Cowboys could certainly use a boost on. I’m fine if the intent is to keep CeeDee Lamb as the primary punt returner but a punt returner that can spell him and Tony Pollard on kick returns could be beneficial to this team.

NFL roster churning is a 365-day job, I hope the Dallas Cowboys brass are using this time to pinpoint trade candidates from other rosters just in case the team ends with a surplus at certain positions.
