Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that the Seahawks checked in with the Cowboys about a potential trade for DE Aldon Smith.

However, Garafolo says the Cowboys told them they weren’t interested in trading Smith and he could be in line for a “lucrative” extension with Dallas next year.

Smith, 30, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2010. He was cut loose by the 49ers shortly after a DUI incident in 2015, even though San Francisco picked up his fifth-year option.

Smith later signed a one-year deal with the Raiders that was worth up to $8 million, which was largely incentive-based. Oakland elected to re-sign Smith to a two-year, $11.5 million contract in 2016.

However, the Raiders placed Smith on the reserve/suspended list before cutting him loose in 2018. The Cowboys later signed him to a one-year contract worth $2 million and includes another $2 million in incentives.

Smith is in line to be an unrestricted free agent next year.

In 2020, Smith has appeared in seven games for the Cowboys and recorded 32 tackles, four sacks and two passes defended.
