If Briggs dosn't work out....

Postby spudstr04 » Tue Jan 22, 2008 4:29 pm

The Dallas Morning News relays a rumor that the Cowboys are shopping DE Marcus Spears and LB Bobby Carpenter in trade talks.

Spears is a solid defensive end, but has never lived up to his first-round draft position. The Cowboys could move Jay Ratliff outside to take his job, with Jason Ferguson and Tank Johnson rotating inside. Carpenter, another first-round pick, just isn't a good fit in a 3-4 defense. He'd be a nice addition for 4-3 team looking to add depth at OLB.


It all depends on whether we are still a 4-3 team next year...I have sense that we are about to totally implode the coaching staff. Anyway, these two would add great depth and would help us scout the Dallas Defense.

Depends on what the Cowboys want in return. Neither has been a big producer. Maybe a couple of low picks.

Why would the Cowboys trade with us?

No way the Cowboys trade within the division.
