Potential Target: Brian Orakpo

Target: Brian Orakpo, Outside linebacker

2014 stats: 24 tackles, 0.5 sack (played in only seven games)

Orakpo has been the best pass-rusher the Redskins have over the past few seasons, but he has also been injured quite a bit and missed the last nine games of the 2014 season with another injury.

However, when healthy, he's averaged just shy of 10 sacks per season when you throw out the 2012 season (2 games) and 2014 (7 games). If healthy, he could provide the Cowboys with a much-needed boost to their pass rush that suffered in 2014 as Jeremy Mincey led the team with just six sacks.

He's also a Texas guy, having grown up in Houston before starring at the University of Texas, so he'd be coming home in a sense, which can always bring the best out of a player.
