The Dallas Cowboys suffered a frustrating loss against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3, and they proved in Week 4 that they are still one of the better teams in the NFL. Every team is going to hit those bumps in the road. But losses like the Cowboys suffered against the Cardinals can also put roster weaknesses under a magnifying glass, and perhaps make it easier to pull the trigger on some big trades when it comes time for the NFL trade deadline.
Nobody is looking to sell just yet, but after an 1-3 start, the Dallas Cowboys might find the Denver Broncos to be a relatively willing trade partner. If the Broncos go into fire sale mode, there are some fun potential deals worth monitoring if you're Dallas.
Let's take a look at some ideas for trades we could see the Cowboys and Broncos strike if Denver continues to struggle and Dallas is in clear contending mode.
1. Find out the asking price on WR Courtland Sutton
It's only been three games, but so far, the addition of veteran wide receiver Brandin Cooks is not yielding the results the Cowboys had hoped to see when they traded for him during the offseason. That felt like such an underrated move for the Cowboys at the time, but through a handful of games, Cooks has barely managed to make a noticeable impact.
Michael Gallup isn't looking like a true WR2, and once again, Jalen Tolbert's breakthrough is taking longer than anyone wants.
The Cowboys might just need to make a bold move and go get someone they know can produce right now, and bringing Courtland Sutton back to the state of Texas just might do it. Sutton played his college ball at SMU, and there were heavy rumors of the Cowboys' interest in him leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft. If the Broncos would part with Sutton for a 3rd-round pick, that might be a worthwhile deal for Dallas to consider.
