3. Trade for Browns RB Nick Chubb

The Cleveland Browns may not be rushing to trade Nick Chubb this offseason, and frankly, other teams may not be rushing to trade for him if he's made available. With that being said, I think Chubb would be an incredible addition to teh Dallas Cowboys on paper.

The Browns have depleted their NFL Draft capital because of the Deshaun Watson trade. They have built one of the best defenses in the NFL, but they are coming to a point now where the combination of the lack of NFL Draft capital and the contracts they've accumulated are catching up to them.

They are about $21 million over the salary cap this offseason, and Nick Chubb has a non-guaranteed salary of nearly $12 million ($11.775M, roughly).

It's hard to imagine the Browns being willing to trade legitimately one of the best players in franchise history when his value is at an all-time low, but that probably won't prevent teams from calling. The Cowboys could go to free agency and look at players like Saquon Barkley or Josh Jacobs if they want to make a splash at running back without giving up draft capital, but if Chubb becomes available for the price of a Day 2 pick, he would certainly have to be in the discussion.
