The Dallas Cowboys will forever will one of the most talked about NFL teams.
Any little bit of information that gets out about them becomes front-page news.
That is exactly what happened when Mike Fisher reported that the Cowboys were “intrigued” by Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud.

Stroud seems like a lock to be a top-five pick in the upcoming draft.
But, the Cowboys select 26th overall.
There is no chance Stroud will fall to them, so if they want him they must make a trade.
Nick Wright believes that it would be smart for the Cowboys to see if the Texans want to make a deal at second overall.
"If the Cowboys love CJ Stroud, the idea of trading Dak for the No. 2 pick makes a ton of sense. I don't think Houston will do it. But it's not just about Stroud, it's also about the $45M of extra cap space you have."

While this deal sounds good in theory, it is unlikely the Texans would trade the second pick for Prescott.
Plus, the Cowboys should not even want to do it.
In an NFC conference full of quarterback uncertainty, the Cowboys know what they have in Prescott.
Moving him to draft a rookie, would push their timeline back, and make it difficult for them to win in the near future.
But, Stroud is a very impressive prospect, and he is someone that many teams will be interested in.
One good point Wright made is that swapping Prescott for Stroud would free up a ton of cap space for Dallas.
Many of the recent Super Bowl contenders had a QB on a rookie contract.
So adding Stroud would allow the Cowboys to spend money to improve their roster elsewhere.
Many people have soured on Prescott due to his last playoff game, but he is still a very good player.
Dallas needs to build around Prescott and give him the help necessary to succeed.NEXT: Micah Parsons Takes A Shot At The City Of Detroit
