Rapoport says nothing is imminent but that a trade could materialize for Charlton in the coming week.
Jane Slater adds Charlton, a former first-round pick in 2017, requested a trade out of Dallas this offseason. The Cowboys also explored trading Charlton during final roster cutdowns this year but weren’t able to settle on a deal.
Charlton was a healthy inactive for the first game of the season and likely will be inactive again for Dallas’ Week 2 game.
Charlton, 24, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2017. He’s entering the third year of his four-year, $10.02 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $1.37 million and $1.83 million over the final two years of the agreement.
The Cowboys will have a fifth-year option to pick up on Charlton in 2020.
In 2018, Charlton appeared in 11 games for the Cowboys and recorded 27 tackles, one sack, a fumble recovery and a pass defense.
