Report: Spears, Carpenter, Hurd, Others On Trade Block
The National Football Post is reporting that the Cowboys are actively shopping defensive end Marcus Spears, inside linebacker Bobby Carpenter, wide receiver Sam Hurd, free safety Patrick Watkins, and guard Cory Procter.
The news really doesn’t come as a surprise, perhaps outside of the language of the claim. Michael Lombardi is reporting that these players are being “shopped around the league” and “for the right price.” The “right price” for all of them except Spears may just be a draft pick (no matter how late). The Cowboys could also package a player and a pick in a deal to move up.
Spears’ value is a bit of a mystery. It is unlikely that a team would surrender more than a third round pick for him, but that could even be stretching it considering he is a restricted free agent.
Spears may have hinted at his departure on Twitter, stating that he doesn’t want to leave Dallas but is unsure of what his future might hold.
