Dallas Cowboys Trade Options: Bill Belichick finally replaces TB12.
Dak had somewhat of an audition for Bill Belichick up close and personal in New England just last season. He torched Bill’s defense to the tune of 445 yards and 3 touchdowns. Bill has his quarterback in Mac Jones but it’s an open relationship. While Mac has started his rookie season on a positive note, his second season left a lot to be desired.
I could be completely wrong about this, but I believe Dak would remove his “no trade” clause to go to New England. They have the cap space available to make the trade happen. They have a really good defense with two decent running backs when healthy. While Tom Brady hasn’t been there for the last three years, his shadow is still there, and Dak, unfortunately, would have to play in it.
This would still be a win-win for both teams. That 46th pick seems ripe for the taking in addition to maybe a later round pick. Dallas would rid themselves of most of that contract. Bill’s window of opportunity is closing, and I don’t believe Mac will get him close to another ring. But maybe Dak will.
The downside is historically Bill has loved his draft picks and probably prefers to build around the rookie quarterback contract. Dak’s contract may be too rich for his blood.
Is this one realistic? Only to a certain extent. New England is a tough place to play in, but it would at least be a fresh start for Dak.
