The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly planning to move on from a former first-round pick if the team can't trade him first.

According to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the team is poised to move on from defensive end Taco Charlton.

Dallas attempted to trade the former Michigan star earlier this season, but has been unable to find a team willing to make the deal. As a result, the team will likely release Charlton to make room for Robert Quinn.

Here's the news from Rapoport.

"The Cowboys are still keeping the door open for a possible trade of former first-round pass-rusher Taco Charlton, but if nothing comes to fruition, they plan to move on from him," Rapoport reported.

Dallas selected Charlton with the No. 28 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

After a standout career at Michigan, Charlton performed well at the NFL combine and vaulted into the first round of the draft.

He's failed to make an impact for the Cowboys, though defensive end is a position of strength for the team. If he's released, he'll likely be claimed on waivers by a team willing to take a shot on the talented defensive player.
