I don't think you trade away players like that to "rebuild".
In the NFL you can rebuild in a season or two, provided you actually admit that you are doing so.
What you don't do is spend a ton of money on a single player or trade up in the draft for a single player.
You acknowledge that you have holes to fill and you actually try to build the team.
The only thing Dallas did was re-shuffle. Shuffled a few problems from this area over to that area. Filled in a couple of holes over here but created a few gaping holes over there.
If the team was rebuilding, things would be different. But since, the team blew it's wad on about 2-3 players this offseason when they needed 7-8, you have no choice but to hope it's good enough.
