REPORT: The Cowboys Could Find Their Next Franchise RB If Fascinating Trade Proposal Becomes Reality … Should Dallas Make It Happen??

In the wake of Tony Pollard’s departure to the Tennessee Titans, the Dallas Cowboys are actively seeking to bolster their depth at running back. 

It’s no secret that Dallas fans aren’t too thrilled with the lack of aggression the Cowboys have shown so far this offseason.

Despite claiming to be “all-in” on fielding a Super Bowl contender for the upcoming season, Jerry Jones and the Boys have done very little to improve the team. (If anything, they’ve gotten worse.)

Adding insult to injury for many Cowboy fans was Derrick Henry’s admission that Dallas was his top choice in free agency, but yet the Boys showed no interest in him.

Time will tell if Jones’ decision not to pursue Henry was the right or not, but to not even pick up the phone is something that doesn’t sit well with the fan base of “America’s Team.”

As far as replacing Pollard, Alex Ballentine of Bleacher Report has floated a suggestion that has certainly piqued the interest of Dallas fans. 

Ballentine proposed that the Cowboys should trade for Denver Broncos running back Javonte Williams.

In Ballentine’s proposal, the Cowboys would acquire Williams in exchange for their third-round pick (#87 overall) in next week’s draft. 

“The trade market should be explored,” Ballentine stated. “Javonte Williams’ name hasn’t really come up through the rumor mill, but he’s a logical target. For one, he only has one year left on his contract and has a reasonable $1.9 million salary.”

Highlighting Williams’ potential impact, Ballentine added, “Injuries have impacted Williams’ early NFL career, but the talent is there for him to have a big season if he’s healthy.”

Williams, a promising talent despite injury setbacks, has showcased glimpses of promise during his tenure with the Broncos.

Despite being limited to 37 games over his first three seasons, Williams has amassed 1,881 rushing yards, seven rushing touchdowns, and 106 receptions for 620 yards and five receiving touchdowns.

The potential acquisition of Williams addresses a pressing need for the Cowboys, who have a rich history of successful running backs.

With Williams offering a blend of youth, talent, and affordability, the trade proposal makes solid sense from a Dallas perspective.

While Williams is just one of several potential trade targets, his availability on a rookie deal with only one year remaining makes him an attractive option for the Cowboys.

Of course, trade proposals are always fun to talk about … But can you see this one actually happening?

Would it make sense for the Cowboys to go after Williams???
