Will Dallas Pay the Pryce?

Rumors have surfaced in the past week that the Cowboys are interested in Broncos DE Trevor Pryce, whom Denver is shopping. Denver is apparently seeking a third-round pick for the 6'5", 295 lb. Pryce, who is coming off an injury-plagued 2004 that saw him start only two games.

Denver's asking price complicates matters for the Cowboys, if they are in fact serious; they have no third round pick, having shipped it to the Texans for QB Drew Henson. Furthermore, the Denver Post notes that Pryce is being shopped because his cap number is close to $10 million, making his contract the biggest on the team. Moving him would free up cap space to sign other key Broncos unrestricted free agents.

From the Cowboys' perspective, taking on Pryce's current contract would eat up close to half of the team's available cap space. The feeling here is that the Cowboys are interested in Pryce -- so long as the Broncos cut him and the Cowboys can work out a new, more cap-friendly contract with him. Otherwise, they'll look in another direction.
