The Dallas Cowboys are knee-deep into their 2021 training camp and the trek out of the swamp that was last season has begun. That starts with the coaching staff learning what assets they have on the team and which holes they may need to look elsewhere to fulfill. Without fail, surprises and disappointments litter the roster and the front office is tasked with either trying to fix a deficit or capitalize on a surplus. Sometimes there’s a deal to be made but most times nothing comes of it. While fan fiction about star-studded deals run rampant, the majority of these deals are with players down the roster.
But sometimes, the rare big-name unicorn trade comes into focus. Such a move either ships out high-profile talent, brings it in, or both. Could this be the case with the 2021 Cowboys? After a public trade demand, Miami corner Xavien Howard has been topic du jour among salivating Cowboys fans. On a scale of 1-10 the likelihood the team would acquire the league’s leading interceptor barely registers as, to use a baseball term, a crooked number. But queue up Lloyd Christmas, because we’re saying there’s a chance.
