We should pull a Herschel Walker-like trade while Tapper's value is still high.
I know we've been building through the draft the last few years, but if we can get a top flight pass rusher or DB, i wouldn't be opposed to trading a high pick or two. We cannot afford to have another subpar year following a great year like the pattern has been. We need to take advantage of this offense. We also still need a top backup at QB. We'll probably wait til people start getting cut for that one.
Short-term, Switzer is a replacement for Lucky, not Beasley.
Hence, the entire reason to cheat.
I can't answer that because I don't see trades happening. Period. Much less anything that would garner anything more than another camp body or mid tier draft pick at best. Just doesn't happen.
When camp opens and Switzer is ahead of Lucky I won't say I told you so
I would think that we trade at least one player prior to the cut to 53. Some areas of the team have too many numbers and some areas are thin on talent. I could see us trading a fringe player at one position for a fringe player at another position. It's fairly common.
Quite honestly if Hanna is healthy he is the best overall tight end on the roster. He isn't as savvy as Witten, or possibly as sure handed catching the ball but he is clearly better at all other phases of the game at less than half the cap hit.
You might be right but I can't overlook the offensive side of Witten's game that much. But he's clearly the #2 TE on the roster when healthy.
Stash him? If he's not ready, he's done.
Wake up to reality.
Potentially Jonathan Cooper. I keep hearing he was drafted so high because of his athletic ability, but now with the injuries that he is limited in that way. I'd love to see him be a plug-and-play guy at LG but I have my questions about it. I'll be interested to see how he does in camp.
As far as trades go, I can't remember the last time the Cowboys traded a player out but they have been known to use late-round draft picks to bring guys in. I could see that happening for a LB if they don't bring in Darryl Washington.
Not sure why you say that. Sarcasm? The Cowboys seem to start every season with someone on PUP.
Isn't that what we did with McFadden last season? IIRC, he was medically cleared to rejoin the team much sooner than he did.
I'm with you. I think he'll be good and I'm excited to see him but let's see the guy play a couple of downs before we put him in the Pro Bowl.
He may be but thus far the Cowboys have not said anything about who is starting. People have opinions, you have an opinion and I would not be shocked if in the end Switzer does win the job but right now he has not beaten anyone out. He has much to prove and while I have high hope for him I am not going to start claiming he greatness because of some OTA workouts. He has to show he can take the hits in the NFL that he can handle the ball as guys are ripping at the ball. Too many highly regarded college players have failed for anyone to claim a rookie is coming in and will stake claim to a starting role
More common that you get a draft pick as opposed to an active player. Every team knows all others must go from 80 to 53 players and there will be prospects claimed as they are released.
You have no idea who has beat who out. Just because you haven't heard doesn't mean you know
Nor do you and I'm not the one making claims . You are giving an opinion and claiming it as a fact. Sorry your fact is just your opinion that is fine but don't pawn it as fact. I'm not against Switzer at all or even Whitehead, I expect guys to go out and earn jobs.
