Shopping Spears and Carpenter?

DMN blog has an intriguing blurb that the Cowboys are shopping Spears and Carpenter while attending the Senior Bowl. Link to the entry below:

My take: If, and that is a somewhat questionable if at this point, we could find interested parties, I would be happy to unload both of these guys, the caveat being what we could get in return.  Now, one must admit that it is disappointing that 2 first round picks have not worked out for us, albeit for different reasons. I would label Spears a bust. He has the opportunity and hasn't done much with it. Carpenter, on the other hand, has suffered from our defensive alignment. Thus, I don't label him a bust because he hasn't really had the chance to play. Think back to the Seattle playoff game of last year, he got some playing time and showed some flashes of real skill. And of course, he is good on special teams. We might actually be able to get something for him.

So, what do you guys think? Try and trade both? Trade Spears and keep Carpenter? Or keep them both, as experienced back-ups are certainly a plus for a team when hit with injuries?
