We are now past the Week 5 slate of games, and the trade deadline is less than three weeks away. With the Dallas Cowboys sitting at 4-1 after a big win over the Los Angeles Rams, adding another impact player to help put this team amongst the elite should certainly be on the minds of Jerry and Stephen Jones.
With the recent news of the Carolina Panthers firing Matt Rhule and the Atlanta Falcons sending Deion Jones to the Cleveland Browns, trade rumors have fired up very quickly.
It isn’t necessary for the team to go after any superstar talents like a Christian McCaffery or Brian Burns, but they could certainly use more help in some key spots. This can be a wide receiver, interior defensive line, or even one more edge rusher.
The top 5 players the Dallas Cowboys should look to trade for right now
This may not be a popular one for Cowboys fans, but Darius Slayton could use a fresh start. After the arrivals of Kenny Golladay, Wan’Dale Robinson, and Kadarius Toney, the once-promising receiver prospect has been buried on the depth chart behind the likes of those listed and Sterling Shepherd.
However, this past Sunday, in an upset win over the Green Bay Packers, the 25-year-old pass-catcher had himself a game. In what was arguably his best game since 2020, Slayton finished the contest with six catches for 79 yards on seven targets.
Slayton had two solid years when he entered the league, but became forgotten when the Giants added more to their receiver room.
The Cowboys could use another young option in their room with Jalen Tolbert being inactive every week and James Washington still working back from injury. Adding Slayton to a room with CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, and Noah Brown could be worth the trade, especially since he probably won’t be worth much on the market.
