Last Sunday's game of the Dallas Cowboys vs. the New Orleans Saints will most likely be remembered as the 400 touchdown for Drew Brees.  The Saints won that game in overtime, and recent losses with the Dallas Cowboys in the form of Tony Romo and now Lance Dunbar have made it clear that some new and possibly drastic moves are required from Dallas this year.  This is what is known about Dallas Cowboys Trade Rumors. 

According to Sports World Report, the Dallas Cowboys made a trade for a quarterback after Tony Romo's injury, trading their 5th round pick with the Buffalo Bills for Matt Cassel and a Bills 7th round pick. 

One of the biggest trade rumors concerning the Dallas Cowboys is about the career of Matt Forte.  According to the Latin Post, the Chicago Bears are trying to trade back running back Matt Forte before the trade deadline, as the Bears are not benefiting from having him on the roster. 

Both the Dallas Cowboys as well as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have an eye on Forte.   The issue with the Cowboys is that with Romo out for the month, they need the ground game advantage, and Forte has quite a record with 1,000 yard rushing mark in five of his seven seasons in the league. 

According to a separate article from Sports World Report, Tony Romo isn't the only loss that is a problem as there is also Dez Bryant and Lance Dunbar.  With him being injured in the opening kickoff in the second half against the Saints, it was pretty bad.  His left leg buckled underneath him and he was not able to put any weight on it as he was helped off the field. 

The running back is set to get an MRI, and the analysis "doesn't sound good" according to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.  This would be a huge loss for the Cowboys, as the running back was leading the team in receiving yards heading into Sunday's game.  He had 10 catches for 100 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3 and had three carries for 54 yards rushing to lead the team. 

There is now a lot of pressure on Joseph Randle and Darren McFadden.  According to ESPN, the Dallas Cowboys will be receiving some reinforcements from Greg Hardy and Rolando McClain return from their four-game suspensions.  Hardy suspended for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, and McClain suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy. 

Of course, bringing in these players back on the field is going to help them, but not for the entire season.  It is possible that Dallas is looking for running back help, and it could come in the form of Forte.  Hopefully the team injuries for this season is done, as it is almost looking like a curse for the Cowboys.
