few days from now, the Dallas Cowboys will face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their 2022 season.
The Cowboys roster might not be finalized yet. The NFC East franchise might still want to use the trade market.
Bleacher Report’s Brent Sobleski believes the Cowboys should make two trades with tight end Dalton Schultz, and linebacker Roquan Smith.
These hypothetical trade scenarios would see Dallas sending Schultz to Panthers for a conditional fourth round pick, and Smith being acquired by the Bears for either a 2023 second round pick or Schultz directly.
“Schultz is an integral part of the Cowboys offense, but they’re already paying top dollar at four different offensive positions (quarterback, running back, right guard and left tackle),” writes Sobleski, via Bleacher Report. “Can they realistically afford to give Schultz a major deal as well?
“…Perhaps the Bears and Cowboys would consider just flipping Smith and Dalton Schultz outright. Chicago needs more weapons and the tandem of Schultz and Cole Kmet could be quite effective out of 12 personnel.”
Here are some interesting trade options for Cowboys.
They might trade Dalton Schultz now if they don’t plan on keeping him around long-term.
