3 Dream Cowboys Trade Targets This Offseason



Whether it is justified or not, the quarterback gets all the blame when his team loses in the postseason. Although it is true that Dak Prescott struggled after the Dallas Cowboys finished 12-5 in 2023 and lost to the Green Bay Packers in the first round, he was not the only one. Throughout the entire game, the defense was outmatched and lacked responses for a youthful and inept offense. They also played more zone coverage than man, which was baffling since they were phenomenal in man coverage all season.

For this reason, there is some excitement about Mike Zimmer’s addition as the new defensive coordinator, taking Dan Quinn’s place. Dallas is aware that Zimmer can lead the defense, but he will require assistance. Because of this, the first two players on this list of three ideal trade targets would drastically alter the team.

3. Budda Baker, Safety

Due to his upcoming free agency, strong safety Jayron Kearse will most likely leave Dallas. Although they do have some internal players like Juanyeh Thomas and Markquese Bell, it would be ideal to bring in a disruptive player like Budda Baker.

The safety for the Arizona Cardinals has been selected to the Pro Bowl six times and has received two All-Pro awards. He has no trouble delivering the hits and can quickly locate the football. Baker has 737 tackles, 7.5 sacks, seven interceptions, and six forced fumbles in his seven-year career.

Baker’s contract is about to expire, thus the Cardinals may choose to sell him in order to obtain some draft capital to increase their depth.

2. Derrick Brown, DT

Micah Parsons seems to be in the spotlight all the time, which has irked some fans this summer. Jordan Love, who helped the Packers defeat Dallas in the playoffs, was interviewed by Parsons on his podcast. Parsons has been active in the media.

Love told Parsons that the defense of the Cowboys was insufficient to stop the run. He continued by pointing out that they lacked an interior line capable of pushing the pocket and mentioned Markquese Bell, a defensive back, as a safety.

Given that he stated the defense requires a big defensive lineman and a “downhill” linebacker, Parsons appears to concur with the assessment. Derrick Brown is the tackle in this ideal situation.

This is a dream trade because it would not be simple for the Cowboys to acquire him. But if they were successful, they would add PFF’s fourth-ranked defensive tackle in the league to their roster. Additionally, they would have Brown, who only had 103 tackles in 2023 alone, as a tremendous run-stopper.

1. Chris Godwin, WR

Although the first two dream targets would strengthen the defense, our last dream scenario is on Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Chris Godwin. Godwin has steady hands and is a neat route runner. He was a third-round selection in the past and has exceeded 1,000 yards in three of the last five seasons.

Over the course of his seven-year career, Godwin has amassed 6,690 yards on 529 receptions and 34 touchdowns. Even more amazing is the fact that he accomplished this on a club that has had multiple quarterbacks run the attack, with Mike Evans being the top target.

Evans will be one of the most sought-after free agents when he hits the open market this offseason. Godwin might not be able to stay in Tampa Bay for very long if the team can find a way to stop him from leaving. The Bucs may try to reduce his pay in 2025 as he is already scheduled to become a free agent.

Dallas would be a nice place for him to land because it would provide him with another offensive line that passes the ball frequently. It would also be beneficial for the Cowboys to have a versatile player who can collaborate with a legitimate No. 1 wideout like CeeDee Lamb. His inclusion might also be sufficient to convince the front desk to fire Michael Gallup since he didn’t fulfill his end of the bargain.
