Default Cowboys Trade

I was just listening to sports radio 610, and the espn update said that inside sources say the Texans and Cowboys are in negotiations for the trade that would involve Antonio Bryant for Jonathan Wells. They said that he was the type of back that Parcells likes. Decent speed and a load to bring down. he would probably be more of a change of pace back behind Julius Jones. If this isnt just speculation, i say pull the trigger now! Forget Bryant's attittude problems, if any coach can fix them, Dom Capers can. Holla back with the feedback!

I have to agree...if thats all we have to give up....then go for it. He'll make an excellent addition to our WR corps.

I'm not sure I'm really for that trade... while ability wise it may be good in our favor, I still dont like Bryants attitude and more importantly he will take away from Gaffney and Bradfords production and i feel that both of them should be much more productive this year.

Bryant would be our no.2 receiver easily and he's a deep threat. I like the move if it happens specially if all we're giving up in Jonathan Wells.

I have read so much about the Texans classy organization and the pride in the behavior of the management and team, with very few exceptions which is commendable. Now I am reading posts that many appear to be excited about taking a player who has demonstrated attitude challenges and becoming so enraged that he was close to assaulting the head coach of him team.

I'm not complaining and really neutral on whether Bryant stays with the Cowboys or is traded. I'm just surprised that at the number of people who seem to embrace a player who has been previously discounted as being a crackboy, classless, and a list of other undesirable names. following much confusion.

I dont want him. I don't like his attitude and like said before, he'll hurt Gaffney and Bradford in the long run. I'll leave it to the Texans orginaztation, they are the professinals.

The flip side of this argument is that he is on a rookie contract so he doesn't come with a Moss or Owens type contract to anchor the team if it doesn't work out.

If all we have to do is give up Wells, do it. Try covering this: AJ, Gaff, Bradford, and Bryant. With DD and Hollings. That will be unstopable, you have a dime corner covering Bryant and his speed. 4 WR sets all game long and we are playoff bound....

Dont forget that Bradford is also in the last year of his contract and Bryant will be insurance in case Bradford leaves....

Bryant is a talent. He has an attitude problem that holds him back. IMO he is better than any WR we have except AJ. The question is whether we want the baggage that comes along with his talent. I'm 50/50 on it myself.

Has anyone else even heard this? I tend to doubt the veracity of the report. I can't find anything on it, but if it is true, I'd jump all over it. True, Bryant is a prick of the highest order, but, since we give up only Wells, the bottom line is that we don't have much invested. Who knows, maybe he turns it around here. If not, we dump him after the year for a low round draft choice. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, but I think he has clear #2 talent. It's his head that has rocks in it.

I say go for it, if it makes our teams better, why not? And I think Parcells is a dang good coach, but some players can't be coached like that, but I really like the way Capers coaches he is stearn but it seems that the players respect him and his ways. So I think that Bryant and coach capers would be a good fit, hopefully!

I think the real question is: "Will Bryant 'GET IT' now that he messed up in Dallas?" Some players get that they are on a slippery slope and that if they don't change, they'll slide out of the league. Others just try the same old BS that got them in trouble with the first team.

The Texans' passed on him once, but if they feel that all he needs is a change in scene, they may experiment in an attempt to upgrade. They are obligated to do this at almost every position, although I like their receivers. I think that Johnson, Gaffney, Bradford, Armstrong, et al will benefit from Carr's additional experience and an improved line and give the fans a lot to cheer about.

Perhaps Bryant would benefit from the positive attitudes on this team, if he were to be traded here. I'll hope that the change of scenery could help. (It worked for Carl Everett and the Astros.) Like fball said, not all players respond to Parcells type coaching.

Earler it was mentioned that we already have a great WR corps...I was curious as to what receivers they were referring to?? AJ is awesome and will be great. Gaff is up and coming and hopefully with some improvement he will be a star also...but Bradford?? Stonehands?? you have to be kidding me...Bryant is way better than Bradford. Im not sure who would get the 2 spot Gaff or Bryant...probably Bryant because of his speed but AJ, Bryant, and Gaff would give defenses nightmares...who in the world would you double up?? And like someone has already mentioned...if we go with a 4 WR set...forget about it..thats just way too much speed to try and cover along with great backs coming out of the backfield. Dont forget that we have some pretty good tightends too...thats just way too many offensive weapons to worry about if your the opposing defensive coordinator.

Attitudes and Egos are almost impossible to avoid in the NFL. We are gonna get some bad apples.. (isnt Kendrick Starling supposed to be like Randy Moss, but without the skills?) We have us a team right now that is filled to the brim with good people.. If these trouble makers cant come here and change their tune, they wont change anywhere. My point is.. we have a solid core of upstanding people.. now we can afford to bring in some of these people with bad attitudes.. cause they are going to be woefully outnumbered and will either change, or get the boot.

That being said.. it SOUNDS like a good trade.. but is that really the whole story? i have a hard time beleiving it. Wells has given no indication that he is a quality player.. yah he has the build.. but so do a million other guys. I think that there has to be more to it than just a straight up trade.. and if we have to give up more than Wells, I dont know. We have a pretty good receiving corp as it is.. and I look forward to seeing what Carr and company can do when he has the same people around him for 2 straight years.
