    Antonio is over-rated big time.

    I've heard the Choice talk alot. I like their DBs though..especially Jenkins and Scandrick and I think if Barber eventually leaves a Jones and Choice backfield works. With injuries they have needed him

    I would not do that. Barber I would consider.

    If this is straight up then Dallas is just dumb. Choice is a great option at RB and Cromartie is overrated as a CB. If they don't get picks out of this too then they are just screwing themselves over.

    I agree here. Choice has been solid for the most part. Especially as a 3rd down back.

    Yup, keep Choice. He has fresh legs still too and the burst that we saw Barber lacking in Minny.

    I agree, I would keep Choice and Jones. I have no clue why Barber was still starting towards the end of the year, I would have EASILY gone with Jones for awhile now. Either Barber has a nagging injury or has just too much wear but he didn't look like the same RB last year.

    more power to the Cowboys

    Not much more I'd like to see an NFC rival do to themselves than hurt their RB depth to pick up an overrated CB

    I don't understand why the Cowboys need another CB. I thought they had a few good ones already. Is this for depth, or will he become a starter?

    I'm assuming this is because they think Newman is slipping because Jenkins is a young stud and Scandrick has been good and growing too. Unless they wanted him to move to free safety since they have had problems there. That or they move Scandrick or someone. I don't get it if we move Choice.

    There has been talk of trying to see if Newman could play safety.

    Antonio Cromartie appears to be on the trading block.

    According to the article, San Diego would take a 3rd rounder for him. That probably means a 2nd rounder at the least. Would you give a 2nd rounder for Cromartie? Cromartie, Quin, and Reeves would be a pretty respectable group of corners. Cromartie is going to be only 26 in April.

    I would do a 3 for Cro. He's a sissy who doesn't like to tackle, but he's an above average starter. Pair him with the Bone Krusher to hide his pansy nature and he'll be fine.

    Guy has 7 kids with 6 different women in 5 different states. He's a weak tackler and is not a very good coverage guy. He's basically an interception headhunter because he knows guys that get picks get paid. However, I don't want him on my team and I'm not giving up anything before a 5th for him.

    And with all that the QB rating for throwing at him last year was 70.9. Compare to Dunta at 99.4.

    I like Choice. He and Jones are really good two back tandem. I like Barber as well. Dallas has the RB's covered.
