Id be all for Carpenter for a late second day pick. He and a first or second round LB this year, might really shore up our LB corp. At the very least theyd be a young group. At the very least Carpenter will help out on special teams.

Re: Dallas shopping Spears and Carpenter

All depends on the asking price. It would be nice to have both of these guys. Spears could be a solid backup, and Carpenter would compete for a starting spot, and like WVSaint said at least a special teams guy.

If Carpenter can live up to his potential in the 4-3 he'd be a great pickup. Spears might be a decent backup with something left to prove. The ammo to trade for both or maybe even one would probably not be worth the risk. I'd swap a fourth rounder for Carpenter and a provisional 7th for Spears and that's without thinking about picking up contracts.

The Cowboys need WR's.

Maybe we could trade them one.

Risky, all depends on what they want for them. This falls under the 2nd Tier player deals we always do, that never pan out.

Re: Dallas shopping Spears and Carpenter

Carpenter hasn't asked Cowboys for trade

Jimmy Sexton, the agent for Cowboys linebacker Bobby Carpenter, said he has not requested a trade for the former No. 1 draft pick. Carpenter was primarily a special teams player this season and might be better suited for a 4-3 scheme. Carpenter had limited action on defense, which stemmed from coach Wade Phillips not being pleased with his play in preseason. -- Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Sad and very true.
