AP Report concerning the Howard Trade.
Haven't seen this one before. Sorry, no link.

AP reports New Orleans has shopped DE Darren Howard throughout the offseason. The Saints have also dangled TE Boo Williams and OG Kendyl Jacox, according to two league sources. Dallas still seems the most willing suitor for Howard, whom the Saints have designated as their franchise player. The Cowboys have two first-round picks, Nos. 11 and 20, and a willingness to pull the trigger. Dallas has dealt its first-round pick 10 times since 1993, including last year to Buffalo. The Saints have fielded calls from Dallas, Washington and Philadelphia this week. The Cowboys reportedly offered to swap first-round picks with the Saints, sending the No. 11 pick to New Orleans in exchange for the No. 16 and Howard. Philadelphia also reportedly offered its first-round pick, No. 31 overall, for Howard. The Saints, however, appear reluctant to part with their most productive defender for anything less than a middle first-rounder. If Howard isn't dealt, the Saints are expected to sign him to a long-term deal in July that would lower his $7.8 million salary-cap figure.

it is interesting that we have shopped boo, jacox, howard and thomas--man if we could package some of them we might get something nice.

The part about that which sttod out to me was the \"signing him to a long term deal\". I find that VERY interesting.
