Fourth overall pick Ezekiel Elliott is poised to take over the Cowboys’ starting running back job, and free agent signee Alfred Morris has performed well in camp. Pass-catching back Lance Dunbar, meanwhile, has come off the PUP list and will be ready for the start of the season, so Dallas could have trouble finding carries for McFadden.

Still, McFadden is a pretty valuable asset given that he rushed for more than 1,000 yards last season and will cost only $1.25MM in base salary. However, his health has always been a question mark, and he’s injured at the moment. McFadden is dealing with an elbow ailment and still hasn’t practiced this offseason.

    Ahhh, trade him yesterday. I wasn’t impressed by him at all last season and he’s had a history of injuries. If someone is willing to buy you sell.

  2. Trade him! The backfield is more than capable and we have other needs to address like PASS RUSH!!!

    You don’t have to be impressed with him he did enough. Run for over 1,000 yards the best pass blocker out of all the backs. A classy guy on and off the field. I rather get rid of Lance Dunbar, seems like the Cowboys could give him a roll there. Only once in a great while he’ll be there .

    Won’t get anything for him. Maybe a 6 or 7th round draft pick of that. Probably conditional pick

    The day Jerry Jones steps down as GM, is going to be a great day. He’s so out of touch it’s not even funny
