What would it take for you to find logic in trading Dak Prescott? (if any)
Mason: At this point, unless it is just a complete steal of a trade, I do not see the logic in trading Dak Prescott away. It just does not make sense to move on from a quarterback who just easily had his best season and potentially trade him for an early pick just to draft a rookie QB. The only upside to doing a trade like that is saving money, but for a team that many believe is built to win now, replacing Dak with a QB that needs to develop would set the team back greatly in my opinion.
Griffin: In no world should the Cowboys consider trading Dak Prescott. Even if they wanted to trade their franchise quarterback, he would have to agree to a new contract or sign his franchise tag tender. Getting rid of Prescott would blow the entire franchise up, needing to restart all the progress it has built towards becoming contenders in the NFC. The only other option would be quarterbacks currently on the roster (Cooper Rush and Bryce Thompson) or signing a ‘big name’ free agent (Cam Newton or Jameis Winston). All options would be downgrades from Prescott, thus keeping the soon to be paid QB in Dallas for the long haul.
Have the Cowboys done enough in free agency or do you still see a player or two you would like them to grab that’s still available?
Mason: The Cowboys have gotten quality players in this year’s free agency. With the draft just a week away I think the smart thing would be to draft all they need there and address any needs they may still have with free agents after. One name that I would not mind them signing is Logan Ryan, who surprisingly is still lurking in free agency. Otherwise, I think the Cowboys have done a great job this off-season at bringing in players of need and they can move on to the draft with a lot less questions about their team needs.
Griffin: Moves coming from free agency will all be dependent on what the Cowboys do in the NFL Draft this upcoming week. If for some reason, Dallas is not able to fill positions of need on the defensive side of the ball, another signing or two will be needed. Especially at the cornerback position, where the Cowboys are needing to replace Byron Jones. Drafting an edge rusher or cornerback in the first two rounds will solve those problems, making their need from the free agency pool minimal.
