With a little more than two hours to go before today's trade deadline, the Dallas Cowboys are reportedly cooking up a potential blockbuster.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys have reached out to the Jets about acquiring standout third-year safety Jamal Adams. Adams is viewed as perhaps the Jets' most valuable tradeable asset.

Rapoport indicates the compensation for the potential deal would be "massive."

Earlier this afternoon, ESPN Jets beat writer Rich Cimini wrote that Adams is the "hot name" in trade talks for the Jets.

One hour ago, ESPNDallas' Jean-Jacques Taylor reported that the Cowboys are working on an "impactful" deal. He has since confirmed it was for Adams.

Dallas has until 4 p.m. ET to get this deal done. If they do, it would be a major infusion of talent for the team' defensive unit.

The No. 6 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft out of LSU, Adams was a Pro Bowler and second-team All-Pro selection last season. In seven games this season, he's made 39 tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown.

Last season, Adams recorded 115 stops, along with 12 passes defensed, 3.5 sacks and an interception.
