The Dallas Cowboys were exposed in their Sunday night loss against the San Francisco 49ers. There's nothing wrong with losing a tough game against a good team, but the Cowboys were blown out and left with very little "good" to take away from the game. One solution for a team like Dallas -- an expected contender -- going through a bit of a slump is to kill any need the team may have with fire.
And by that, I mean they could try to get a little desperate and start looking at the trade market for available deals. And there could be some interesting deals available in the next couple of weeks. What areas do the Dallas Cowboys need to address? What moves could actually be out there?
Let's take a look at a handful of moves involving players that could soon become available that could address some areas the Cowboys need help at right now as we approach Week 6 of the season.
3 trades the Cowboys need to make after 49ers loss
1. Go get Kyle Pitts from the Falcons
I know the Cowboys just used a second-round pick on Luke Schoonmaker, but even though Schoonmaker and Kyle Pitts would both be listed on the roster as "TE", they couldn't be more different in their overall makeup as players.
Kyle Pitts is a dynamic weapon in the passing game, and I think the Dallas Cowboys still desperately need more of those to complement CeeDee Lamb. Despite the return of Michael Gallup into the lineup, despite the addition of veteran Brandin Cooks, and despite the team drafting a player like Jalen Tolbert in round three, the Cowboys still lack a true secondary threat in the passing game to help that area of the offense.
Dak Prescott isn't playing great right now, but part of the problem is the lack of multiple true threats at receiver/tight end. Dalton Schultz was a safety valve for him in the past, and while Jake Ferguson is second on the team in targets, he's averaging a pedestrian 8.8 yards per catch.
If the Falcons are willing to part with Kyle Pitts, the Cowboys should undoubtedly be among the teams interested in acquiring him.
