The Dallas Cowboys were reportedly planning to move on from a former first-round pick if the team couldn't trade him first. According to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the team was ready to move on from Taco Charlton.

Dallas attempted to trade the former Michigan star earlier this season, but was unable to find a team willing to make the deal.

As a result, the team released Charlton to make room for Robert Quinn.

Here's the news from Rapoport.

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 failed to make an impact for the Cowboys, however, and now finds himself searching for a new team just two years later.

Defensive end is a position of strength for the Cowboys - especially after activating Quinn before this weekend's game.

Despite not finding his footing with the Cowboys, another team will likely take a shot on the talented defensive end. Plenty of NFL teams need help rushing the passer and could come calling for the former Michigan star.

Stay tuned to find out where Charlton lands.
