Proposed blockbuster trade sends Cowboys an All-Pro star

The Dallas Cowboys have had a quiet offseason, leading some to wonder if the team could make a splash in the months to come. Former Cowboys scout Bryan Broaddus believes the only position the Cowboys would be willing to give up assets for is wide receiver, adding that the team could be a potential landing spot for disgruntled 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel.

“I’d like to think that the only position they would give up assets for, and history has shown they’ve done that before, is broad receiver,” Broaddus explained during an episode of the Star’s Love podcast. “Well, we’ll see, with the whole Deebo thing, would that fit best? Yes, he just does so much for you, but would [Cowboys offensive coordinator] Kellen Moore be able to use it like we saw in San Francisco?”

Samuel requested an off-season trade but so far the Niners have insisted they will not treat the star receiver. The playmaker enters the final season of his four-year, $7.2 million rookie contract and is expected to earn a salary of $3.9 million in 2022. Amid trade rumors, Samuel is looking for a new lucrative long-term deal.

While Samuel and DK Metcalf look for new business, the Cowboys could at least oversee trade talks with the Niners and the Seahawks. Not only would a trade for Samuel potentially cost the Cowboys two future first-round picks, but the team would have to sign the versatile wideout to a new massive contract.

We’ve seen other star recipients such as Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams, among others, sign new contracts with average annual salaries in the $25 million to $30 million range. Given that Jones has a history of making big deals for wide receivers, Broaddus noted that the Cowboys are a team to watch even if the odds are that Dallas would land a blockbuster trade.

“Samuel, Metcalf, I think you’d want to keep in touch with those teams, just when we get to the point where you come into training camp and you’re not happy or talking about potential PUPs [receiver injuries]’ Broaddus added. “Well yeah, keep those warm [as] possibilities, sure. Anything is possible in the NFL, we saw that, and Jerry Jones was willing to move picks, multiple picks, to make sure he got a wide receiver.

Samuel and the 49ers have attempted to mend their relationship, but it appears the receiver hasn’t changed his stance. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that despite Samuel’s participation in the minicamp, “no official withdrawal of the trade application has taken place”.

“Mentioned on @SportsCenter this morning that there hasn’t been an official withdrawal of the trade request, at least that’s what I’m aware of – but he’s turned up for minicamp which is a positive and there’s not much league-wide chatter about a potential trade right now” , Fowler tweeted on June 26.
