This may come a shocker, but there actually is a modicum of football news out there that doesn't include the Saints, Peyton Manning or Tim Tebow. There's even some news about the Cowboys. So here's a collection of this morning's headlines for your reading pleasure.

Why trading down in NFL draft might be the best option for Cowboys - David Moore, DMN
Moore argues that if there are 5-6 guys on the board at No. 14, with little separation between them, then it could make sense to move back a couple of spots and select among the players left.

UT linebackers will attend Cowboys' Dallas Day workout - Charean Williams, Star-T
Texas linebackers Emmanuel Acho and Keenan Robinson will visit Valley Ranch for 'Dallas Days' where local prospects work out for the Cowboys. CBSSports projects Robinson as a 3rd-4th rounder, while Acho is projected as a 5th rounder.

Winning with 'G Power' - Bob Sturm, FSSW
Sturm opens the mailbag and breaks down a staple of the Cowboys' playbook. Also, after watching Nate Livings go up against Calais Campbell in a film review, he is guardedly more optimistic about the newly acquired guard.

Cowboys not present at Boston College Pro Day - Chris Steuber
Chris Steuber tweets that the Cowboys were one of only five teams not in attendance at Boston College's Pro day. Does this mean they are not interested in BC linebacker Luke Kuechly, or is this just a smokescreen? Can't trust anybody and anything in draftseason.

Baylor C/G Philip Blake to have private workout with Bill Callahan next Monday -
Blake played center for Baylor the past two seasons, but also has experience at tackle. At the Senior Bowl, he worked out primarily as a guard.

"I'm excited about getting a chance to work out for Coach Callahan," Blake said. "The Cowboys have shown some interest in me. I talked to them (at the combine). Right now, I'm just excited about the opportunity to work out and show these teams what I can do."

"I feel like I can be versatile enough to play different spots if need be. Right now, I'm used to the center position, but I feel comfortable playing other positions. I know that's important in the NFL."

Even after free agent binge, Cowboys still have plenty of holes to plug - Brandon George, DMN
George presents a long laundry list of positions the Cowboys still need to address, via the draft or free agency: insider linebacker, two defensive backs, a tight end, a pass-rusher, a receiver and possibly a punter.
