2. Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys have been in the news a lot recently. Mainly because they have not been able to sign Dak Prescott to a long term deal and he will play under the franchise tag in 2020 worth $31.4 million. The other reason is because of their need for help in the secondary.

Jamal Adams is a name that has been linked the the Cowboys in a trade. It is unlikely that this move gets done anytime soon. A likely option could be Peterson is free agency. Jerry Jones likes to make big splash moves and this would fall under that category. The Cowboys are in a position where they need to win and win soon.

Dallas drafted Trevon Diggs in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Chidobe Awuzie is entering the final year of his contract. Diggs will get some valuable experience as a rookie and this will prepare him for the upcoming years. It would behoove Dallas to put a player of Patrick Peterson’s caliber on the other side of Diggs for years to come.
