Dallas Cowboys Could Be Trade Partner For Jets’ Wide Receiver

The Dallas Cowboys are in need of some wide receiver depth behind CeeDee Lamb, and the New York Jets may have a potential solution for them.

Cory Woodroof of USA Today thinks the Cowboys could represent a potential landing spot for Allen Lazard, who is preparing to enter his second season with the Jets.

New York signed Lazard last offseason as a target for Aaron Rodgers, as the two developed a pretty solid connection during their Green Bay Packers days.

However, Rodgers ended tearing his Achilles on the Jets’ first offensive series of the year, which severely limited Lazard’s effectiveness the rest of the way.

In 14 games last season, Lazard logged just 23 catches for 311 yards and a touchdown. That came after an impressive 2022 campaign in which he hauled in 60 receptions for 788 yards and six scores during what was his final year with the Packers.

Of course, Rodgers is returning for the Jets next season, so Lazard could return to prominence in 2024. But, New York did sign fellow wide out Mike Williams to put alongside of Garrett Wilson last month, which has pushed Lazard further down the depth chart.

That could make the 28-year-old expendable, and if Gang Green opts to trade him, Dallas could jump in and try to make something happen.

Behind Lamb, the Cowboys have Brandin Cooks and Michael Gallup, neither of which inspire a ton of confidence these days. Both guys have 1,000-yard campaigns in their rearview mirror, especially in the case of Cooks. However, Cooks is aging, and injuries have sapped Gallup.

Lazard probably isn’t an ideal No. 2 receiver, but he would at least provide the Cowboys with a healthy, younger option for Dak Prescott.
