A buddy clued me in to this trade rumour on Pro Football Weekly.
What had initially been discussed, at least in league circles, was that the Cowboys would give up a first-rounder this year, a first-rounder next year and Marion Barber in exchange for the fourth overall selection, which should be able to land McFadden. Discussions have also been made about the Cowboys sending Bobby Carpenter and Marcus Spears — two disappointing Parcells-endorsed picks now on the trading block, the Cowboys’ first two picks and potentially a pick next year in exchange for Raiders CB Fabian Washington and the fourth overall pick. However, at this point, I would be surprised to see a deal struck between the two teams.
So, if I get this right, it would be both #1's, Carpenter, Spears and maybe a pick next year for #4 and Washington. Absolutely NO WAY would I do that deal. The silly season really IS the silly season.
