Tyron Smith has been major piece of the Dallas Cowboys offense for the past 11 seasons. This season, Smith who was the 2011 first-round selection made his eighth Pro Bowl appearance.
Smith is still an effective player but he isn’t always healthy. In 2021, he missed six regular-season games and only two in the previous year. Smith played his last full season in 2015.
Given Smith’s injury history, his contract status (signed for two additional seasons), and his age (31), would the Cowboys trade Smith in this offseason?
There’s a chance that Locked on Cowboys’ Marcus Mosher might have mentioned on this week’s podcast. Mosher asked if Smith would be available to the Ravens, or if Smith would be available to the Bengals with their 31st overall pick.
Cowboys fans aren’t buying either of these items as a legitimate possibility for many reasons.
The Ravens would be dumb as hell to take that deal. The Bengals would also be pretty dumb to take that deal.
I’m not opposed to trading Tyron for a pick, but you’re not going to get a 1 for him. And if a team is dumb enough to take that trade, I’d do it in a heartbeat https://t.co/gIjn1YPecP

The bigger question is can you really replace him? No. https://t.co/RVjHCuh7eX

Do y’all know that tyron smith is only 31 years old, yes he’s had a few injury season. But how about if you trade him and all the sudden he stays healthy and a corner stone for another franchise for 6-7 maybe 9 years to come 🤦♂️ just like this let go of coop stuff it’s crazy! https://t.co/6K7NqP0QQR

Terence Steele was the starting left tackle in the six games Smith missed in 2021. Steele, who is currently under contract for next season, would likely be the best option to replace Smith if the Cowboys trade him.
It will be impossible to believe that they will do it until it happens.
