Report: Cowboys looking to trade former first-round pick Taco Charlton
Taco Charlton appears to have fallen out of favor with the Dallas Cowboys, so it is no surprise that they are open to trading the defensive end.
The Cowboys have had recent discussions about trading Charlton, Ian Rapoport and Jane Slater of NFL Network report. Those talks have the potential to heat up in the coming days.
One situation to watch over the next few days: The #Cowboys have had recent trade talks surrounding first-round pass-rusher Taco Charlton, sources tell me and @SlaterNFL. While nothing is imminent, it could heat up this week. Charlton will be inactive today.

Charlton was the Cowboys’ first-round pick back in 2017, but he does not appear to be in the team’s plans. He was a healthy scratch in Week 1 against the New York Giants and is not expected to be active to face the Washington Redskins on Sunday. The former Michigan star had just four sacks in 27 games over his first two seasons.
The Cowboys have been mentioned as a possible suitor for one of the last good players remaining in Miami, but it seems unlikely that the tanking Dolphins would be interested in anything other than draft picks. Charlton’s trade value is also fairly low considering teams know Dallas doesn’t want him, so they could just wait to see if the Cowboys cut him.
