Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is among the many players who are entering the final year of their rookie contracts, so it is no surprise that he enters the next 24 hours as a potential trade target for teams that are looking to add a running back before Tuesday afternoon’s trade deadline.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports was discussing running backs that could be traded by 4 p.m. ET tomorrow and McFadden was one of the top names on the list.
Other running backs that could potentially be traded are Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Arizona Cardinals running back Ryan Williams, Detroit Lions back up Mikel Leshoure and former first-round pick Mark Ingram of the New Orleans Saints.
It is unlikely that all of these players will be traded, but it isn’t out of the question that a team like the Dallas Cowboys could be in play.
We have to remember that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had a man crush on McFadden when he was entering the NFL Draft out of Arkansas, so he could jump at the opportunity to land the man that he once coveted so highly.
