The Cowboys are actively shopping defensive end Taco Charlton, and while there haven't been reports of significant traction behind negotiations, Charlton will sit out against the Redskins for Week 2.
Who are some possible suitors looking to make an offer for the former first-round pick from the 2017 NFL draft?
1. Miami Dolphins
Given Miami's interest in Jadeveon Clowney before he was traded to the Seahawks, the Dolphins could call an audible and look at Charlton to fill that DE void. Sure, Charlton doesn't have the resume or sheer ability that Clowney does, but with a team mutiny underway, Miami could, and should, prioritize talented building pieces over proven stars at this point.
2. Houston Texans
Should the former Michigan Wolverine find his way to Houston, he'd be able to back up JJ Watt, or find himself on the third string behind 2019 fifth-round selection Charles Omenihu as a worst case scenario. Charlton upped his total amount of tackles from 19 to 27 last season, and if the Texans like what they've seen from the two-year man so far, they could bring him aboard for a fair price (we think).
3. Arizona Cardinals
With backup DE Jonathan Bullard listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury, the Cardinals may need some help if they're uncomfortable with throwing rookie Michael Dogbe out there. A topsy-turvy game against the Lions ended in a tie, but Kyler Murray showed he's more than capable of shining bright. At 24 years old, Charlton fits the age range to operate during Murray's developing and prime years.
