3 Cowboys Trade Packages for Jamal Adams That Don't Involve La'el Collins

Jamal Adams has made it clear that he wants out of New York and in with the Cowboys. As one of the NFL's very best safeties, Adams also demands a high price tag.

One player that the Jets are looking at in a potential deal with the Cowboys is right tackle La'el Collins. But Collins has a neat contract and is a valuable talent on a stellar offensive line which Dallas would be foolish to break up. They don't have to either. A first and third-round round pick are a must in any case, but here are three players who could take Collins' place.

3. Jourdan Lewis

Lewis finds himself as the odd man out in a crowded Dallas secondary, indicating they may not be hesitant to part ways with him. New York has multiple young names in the cornerback mix, including Brian Poole, Blessuan Austin and new signing Pierre Desir. Lewis could act as the proven piece to bolster an otherwise unpredictable Jets secondary. Perhaps a 2021 first-round pick would be added to make this deal really worth it for New York.

2. Xavier Woods

Woods has no place in Dallas if Adams comes to town, making him an ideal piece to include in a deal. New York receives a young, talented safety that can commit for the long-term while Dallas makes space for Adams to take the reins on the Dallas defense. Like most things, this deal may be too good to be true, but adding a first or second-round pick into the mix may make it enticing enough for New York to accept.

1. Michael Gallup

Looking at the Jets' needs, the wide receiver position is definitely one of them. With Quincy Enunwa's injury and Robby Anderson heading to Carolina, Michael Gallup could enter the picture as the star receiver New York wants alongside Sam Darnold. Gallup could become a centerpiece on a talented Jets offense in the years to come. And for Dallas? They drafted CeeDee Lamb for a reason. A second-round pick added to the mix would at least start negotiations from the Jets' perspective.
