Cowboys are eager to move up in the draft to get a quarterback to replace Tyron Smith, but this is why it might be challenging.

The Dallas Cowboys enter the 2024 offseason with the tension and unease that comes with an early playoff exit. Another 12-win regular season ended in bitter disappointment when the Packers stunned them in the opening round.

It sets up a fascinating offseason for the Cowboys. They elected to keep head coach Mike McCarthy after another early playoff exit, but they face a season where the stakes feel even higher than they usually are at The Star.

Last offseason, we saw the Cowboys get aggressive to push this roster to be championship-worthy. They made trades for Stephon Gilmore and Brandin Cooks to fill two of their biggest needs. Then they made a surprising trade for Trey Lance.

It’ll be even tougher to pull off aggressive moves this time around. The Cowboys are currently $14.3 million over the cap and their internal free-agent crop includes Tyron Smith, Tony Pollard and Gilmore.

If they decide they want to keep any combination of that trio, it’s going to mean they have a limited budget.

However, they could also look to the trade market to replace any of them. Here’s a look at three targets they could have in mind if they do so.
