The Cowboys-49ers trade for Wide Receiver that could actually work

According to Cowboys insider Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan, the Cowboys are looking at both Arizona Cardinals receiver Christian Kirk and San Francisco 49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin.


Kirk would be the better option. He is just 23-years old and is coming off a season that featured 709 receiving yards. The former Texas A&M standout did all of this with rookie Kyler Murray throwing the ball to him.


As for Goodwin, he is 29-years old and is coming off season-ending surgery that ended his 2019 season. He lasted just nine games. In 2017, Goodwin finished with 962 yards, but his best season since then was two years ago, which featured 431 yards. His stats are less than exciting.


Landing Goodwin seems more likely, as his time in San Francisco seems all but up. For Kirk, it’s questionable why the Cardinals would deal him. After dealing for DeAndre Hopkins, and at just 23, the Cardinals could seem themselves on the rise.


The Cowboys are thin at receivers outside of Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup. Goodwin is under contract through 2021 and carries just a dead cap value of only $625,000 if things didn’t work out.

The Cowboys have two fifth-round picks, which means the Cowboys could use one of them on Godwin. This would add some depth for an offense that lost Randall Cobb to the Houston Texans and Jason Witten to the Las Vegas Raiders.


Adding Goodwin isn’t going to make anyone jump for joy, but it adds an additional piece.
