The Dallas Cowboys are weighing all of their options on trade deadline day.
According to a report by SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday, the Cowboys have expressed interest in acquiring Miami Dolphins' defensive end Cameron Wake.
A potential move for the 34-year old makes sense as the Cowboys are desperate to find a pass rush as they appear to be bonafide championship contenders. It’s long been rumored that the Dolphins are open to trading Wake. Wake, who has 73 career sacks, is recovering from an achilles tendon injury and has appeared in just 195 defensive snaps on the season. Wake has about $3.9m of base salary remaining on the 2016 season.
Wake is 6-foot-2 and around 240 pounds, making him a force when used sparingly.
He has done well in a rotational role over the last two weeks and the 3-4 Dolphins are suddenly in the thick of a crowded AFC wild card conversation.
Wake has a year remaining on his deal for $6.875 million, of which $3 million is guaranteed.
The Cowboys could probably land Wake, if the price is right and if Miami is willing to part ways with him.
The NFL’s trade deadline is at 4:00 pm EST this afternoon.
