    If the price is right I would ship him and draft Elijah Moore in the 3rd

    I like the fire power we have on offense, but if the price is right, who knows.

    Litmus test. They might have gotten a few offers that they're meh about, but consider pursuing to up things via negotiation.
    And yet they want to know fan reaction, like they always do.

    I'm not for it, but they're going to have to trade him. He most likely won't be playing in a Cowboys uniform in 2021. No way they can extend him.

    Like I said: Litmus test.

    Think about this team's priorities. You know what they are.

    I'd see what his market it. Like if someone got crazy and offered you a first in this draft for him? Yeah, I'd probably take that. A high 2nd? I'd probably consider that too.

    This is a fan question sent into the their media site which is totally separate from the front office. Same as if the dmn/star-telegram were asked the question. I assure you that David Helman and Rob Phillips are not making personnel decisions for the Cowboys.

    Mailbag: Considering Trading Michael Gallup?

    Should, or could the Cowboys look to trade Michael Gallup to get a Top 40 draft pick and a conditional 2022 pick? I think highly of Gallup, but by this time next year his price will prove to be too rich to keep him. Jets, Titans, and the Ravens come to mind as possible targets. — JAMES HOBSON / CHEYENNE, WY

    David: I've thought about this a lot since the season ended, and I'm with you. I love Michael Gallup, but he might price himself out of a second contract here in Dallas. If the front office can deal him and draft his replacement this spring, I'm all for it. The only problem is that his contract status might make it hard to get full value for him, as teams typically don't love trading for guys with just one year on their contracts. But if someone was willing to trade a second or third-round pick to get him, I'd have to heavily consider it.

    Rob: I understand the long-term logic behind the question. As good as Michael Gallup is (and he's getting better) there's only so much teams can invest at the receiver position, and even a franchise tag next year would not be cap-friendly (it's $16.5 million at WR this year). But the offense is the Cowboys' biggest strength and their best chance at making the playoffs next season. Why weaken that strength for a draft pick who may or may not help you much at all this year? By trying to re-sign Dak, the club is clearly in win-now mode despite 6-10 last year. I just have a hard time buying into a scenario where you sign Dak and then say, "Hey, let's go win a Super Bowl. By the way, one of your best receivers plays for someone else now."

    This is to continue the narrative that "Dak needs to take a pay cut so they can re-sign their own guys".

    Maaaaaaaaybe we could get a late 2nd for him but I don’t see a lot of teams wanting to give a WR a big contract in a year when this years draft and next will be very WR heavy.

    This is also something people don't take inconsideration on trading Gallup.....

    We just saw what this last receiving class did with Justin Jefferson....we saw the before it with Scary Terry and DK Metcalf.......wide receiver is starting to become like the running back position where guys are coming right in and contributing.

    This is the era of wide receivers...there are so many good ones in the league.....we saw what Hopkins got traded for. What on earth could the market be for a Michael Gallup who's about to be a free agent?
