After signing Royce Freeman to a one-year contract, the Dallas Cowboys have now added a grand total of two outside free agents. This comes after Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones both claimed the team was going to be “all in” this offseason. 

While they haven’t been anywhere close to being all in, they can still make some moves ahead of the 2024 NFL draft. The Cowboys' top two additions last year were both acquired via trade. They traded for Brandin Cooks from the Houston Texans, and Stephon Gilmore from the Indianapolis Colts. 

Perhaps their plan will again be to use the trade route to fill out holes on the roster. If so, here are three names they could target.

3. Garrett Bradbury, C, Minnesota Vikings

Since taking over as the general manager for the Minnesota Vikings, Kwesi Adofo-Mensah has proven he’s willing to make bold moves. He’s also shown he has no issues moving on from players who were on the team before he arrived in 2022.

The latest example was allowing Kirk Cousins to hit the open market and ultimately sign with the Atlanta Falcons. That puts them in a rebuild and could open the door for Dallas to bring in someone such as Garrett Bradbury.

A former first-round pick from North Carolina State, Bradbury has been a starter for five years. Signed through 2025, Bradbury has a cap hit of roughly $6 million in each of the next two years. That’s lower than what Tyler Biadasz landed with Washington and should be affordable to the Joneses. It would also fill a major need so they can turn their attention elsewhere in the draft.
