Veterans Figure in Last Minute Draft Games

New, comments

There is some late intrigue involving two veteran pass rushers.

The New Orleans Times Picayune states that several teams, including the Cowboys and Eagles, have inquired about DE Darren Howard. The Saints are listening, but it is clear this is a buyers' market. Philadelphia has apparently offered the 31st overall pick for Howard. Dallas has offered to swap the 11th and 16th picks in exchange for Howard. In points terms, Dallas is trying to acqure Howard for a high third rounder.

New Orleans is balking, but I am certain they would welcome a move up. Their top draft target is Georgia S/LB Thomas Davis but the Chiefs are also apparently enamored with Davis.

ESPN reported last night that the Cowboys are trying to horn in on a trade that would send Tampa Bay DE Simeon Rice to San Diego for the 28th pick. It is unclear what Dallas would offer Tampa Bay to trump the Chargers offer, which one source gave a 70 percent chance of success.

Stay tuned.
