Despite promises by Jerry Jones and the front office about strengthening the roster ahead of the 2024 NFL campaign, the Dallas Cowboys are projected to start the year with a weakened roster, especially on the offensive end. Cowboys fans already saw the starters in the offensive line leave in free agency, as well as the departures of Michael Gallup and Tony Pollard.

This leaves the Cowboys' offense short of playmakers, creating a need for more offensive weapons ahead of the season. One possibility for Dallas will be exploring the trade market.

Fortunately for them, one intriguing wide receiver is seemingly available via trade.

Cowboys Rumors: Titans WR Treylon Burks is the Perfect Trade Target

Treylon Burks of the Tennessee Titans recently fell out of favor as the former first-round pick underwhelmed in his first two seasons in the NFL. He was already behind Calvin Ridley and DeAndre Hopkins in the pecking order and now it looks like the Titans are looking to add more pass-catchers into the mix.

The Titans are reportedly looking to sign Tyler Boyd or Zay Jones in free agency. As Mike Clay of ESPN points out this likely means that Burks is a prime trade candidate.

The Cowboys had coveted Burks before the 2022 NFL Draft. They had the Arkansas standout high on their draft board before the Titans selected him before it was Dallas' turn.

Burks is not the highly sought-after receiver he once was. He has 49 catches for 665 yards in 21 games in the NFL, only scoring one touchdown.

However, he is still 24 years old. If he were to stay healthy for a full season, there is a chance he could have a bounceback season. Considering that it wouldn't take much for the Cowboys to trade for him, Burks could be an intriguing low-risk, high-reward option as he would have the chance to start in this depleted receiver rotation.

Despite the disappointing offseason, the Cowboys are still tied with the Eagles in odds of winning the NFC East (+120) next season. Head over to FanDuel Sportsbook now if you want to take advantage of these odds and get in on the action.
