Cowboys reporter provides confirmation about Michael Gallup on the trade block
The NFL Trade Deadline is set for November 3rd and there is one target on the Dallas Cowboys that could be moved.
Michael Gallup, a 1,000-yard receiver just a year ago, could be out of Dallas after the team started the season 2-5. If the Cowboys lose to the Eagles on Sunday to drop to four games under .500, the clarity of Gallups future could be up in the air.
Gallup is still playing on his rookie deal and is under contract through the 2021 season. Some believe the Green Bay Packers could be a contender for his services.
However, Cowboys reporter Michael Gehlken shot down all rumors surrounding Gallup. Gehlken tweeted that Cowboys will keep him moving forward.
“Cowboys are not willing to trade WR Michael Gallup before Tuesday’s NFL deadline, source said. If they were to deal a top receiver, he wouldn’t be the logical choice.”
Gallup is not the only receiver swirling in the rumor mill. ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio that the Cowboys could be trading another major piece of the team. According to Florio, the Cowboys are looking at the possibility of trading wide receiver Amari Cooper.
Florio also specified that the Packers are a team that could look to land Cooper. That would give the Packers a terrifying 1-2 punch with Davante Adams. With those two weapons on offense, it would give Aaron Rodgers enough ammunition to make a Super Bowl run.
When the Cowboys traded for Cooper, the team surrendered a first-round pick, so certainly the team would want at least that in return. However, Cooper just signed a five-year $100 million contract, so a team would need to take on that megadeal.
It’s all going to depend on the team’s outcome against the 2-4-1 Eagles. If the Cowboys can win, the team will be in first place and nobody will go into sell mode if the team is contending for a playoff berth.
