The Dallas Cowboys have been quiet this offseason but started to make a few moves late. They haven't exactly moved the needle much by bringing back Ezekiel Elliott or signing Royce Freeman but they're at least trying to fill out their roster.

Following those moves — as well as the 2024 NFL Draft — we can see their roster start to take shape. There might not be a lot of areas where they have too much talent but they do have a couple of players who might be enticing to another franchise. With that being said, here are three players the Cowboys could look to trade before the start of the season.

3. Eric Scott, Jr., Cornerback

One of the more frustrating moves in the 2023 NFL Draft for Dallas was when they traded a future fifth-round pick to get back into Round 6. They used the 178th overall selection on Eric Scott, Jr. out of Southern Miss which felt like a reach.

The Cowboys clearly saw something they liked in the young cornerback, although it was likely just his length. Former defensive coordinator Dan Quinn loved defensive backs with long arms and the 6-foot-2, 202-pound Scott fit the bill.

Perhaps Scott will make a leap in year two but it's hard to be too optimistic when he didn't play at all as a rookie. He also now has Caelen Carson to deal with who was a fifth-round pick despite the fact that the Cowboys were considering him in Round 3.

The market for Scott might not be great but maybe Quinn would like to see what he can do in Washington.
