Reports out of ESPN have mentioned the Dallas Cowboys zeroing in on certain prospects for the first round of the NFL Draft - set to take place on Thursday. According to the worldwide leader in sports, the Cowboys have done "a ton of recon work" on Penn State edge rusher Yetur Gross-Matos. The report also states that if the Cowboys were to possibly grab Gross-Matos, it could be in the form of a trade down from their number 17 spot to get more draft capital. It's a wait-and-see game.

More Cowboys news on the docket, as reports claim that the 'Boys are looking for a trade partner for a slot wideout. Names that have popped up on the rumor mill include San Francisco 49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin and former Aggie and current Arizona Cardinal Christian Kirk. Kirk, a second round pick in 2018, was chosen three slots before the Cowboys eventually selected Texas Longhorn product and current starting left guard Connor Williams.

The NBA season's fate has yet to be decided, but that's not stopping Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey from preparing for an offseason that might come sooner than expected if play doesn't resume. Morey says he’s using his downtime during the league’s ongoing COVID-19 hiatus to make plans for free agency and potential trades later this year. In an interview in March, Morey said Houston hoped to “add a significant player” this coming offseason.
