Next up, we stay in the NFC East and look at the Dallas Cowboys as a potential suitor. Dallas failed to address the departure of Tony Pollard and, in the end, wound up bringing back Ezekiel Elliott, who happens to be the same age as Kamara.

If the Cowboys don't want to fully depend on Elliott and instead ensure he stays fresh, they could pair him with Kamara and give the offense a strong tandem.

This one is pretty interesting because it doesn't involve any picks, just players. The Cowboys get a starting running back so that they don't have to rely on Elliott, and if they so choose, can use both he and Kamara as a one-two punch.

Meanwhile, the Saints get a proven wide receiver to step in next to Chris Olave, taking some pressure off Rashid Shaheed and allowing the speedster to fall back into a comfortable WR3 role. Cooks still has plenty left in the tank and would be, quite frankly, exactly what this passing game needs. Derek Carr needs someone like Cooks, who can take a load off Olave and give the offense another reliable option in the passing game.
