Dallas Cowboys Trade option 2: Isaiah Wynn, OL

Isaiah Wynn is on the block. The former first round tackle has landed in Bill Belichick’s doghouse this year and after getting benched two weeks ago, doesn’t look like he’ll be taking a snap again for New England.

The 25-year-old was once a budding star at OT. But after being asked to move from LT to RT this offseason (something he begrudgingly accepted), New England apparently shopped his value. Clearly, they resisted the urge to trade and now they’re likely feeling regretful.

Wynn was having the worst season of his career before getting benched. His attitude, effort, and ability have been called into question, thus tanking his value.

Jones, always a sucker for a sweet deal, could see this as an opportunity to add to a position of concern. The Dallas Cowboys offensive line has been questionable, to say the least, this season. While good run-blocking, they’re hot trash in pass protection. Next Gen stats has them dead last in pass-block win rate at 45%. To say they could use some help is a bit of an understatement.

Based on previous seasons, we know Wynn is a quality LT. He ranked 30th and 11th over the last two seasons (Steele and Smith both rank 29th and 52 respectively this season). Wynn can also play inside at guard so he gives the Cowboys yet another piece to tinker with, in search of the “best-five.”

He’s young and pedigreed so he’s not going to be cheaper than a mid-round pick. And he clearly doesn’t play the right side so he’s either a LT or LG for the Cowboys. But you can never have enough O-linemen and the Dallas Cowboys have a ton of areas of opportunity through their ranks to make this a worthwhile trade.
