Cowboys Have Had Trade Talks For DE Taco Charlton


According to Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys have had trade talks for DE Taco Charlton as recently as last week.

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.
