I can see the rationale on the Cowboys' side. Clear out the aging but good or great players for draft picks and future cap room (Romo, Ware perhaps Spencer or Miles). Get rid of the bad contracts (Free, Ratliff) play a year with Orton. Find a young qb.
Retool around Dez, Lee, Smith, Carter Murray, Claiborne, Carr.
C'mon the Cheifs aren't going to give up the #1 overall pick for Romo.
We have some real dreamers on this board. Romo is almost 33 and has a losing record the last 3 seasons plus his latest choke job has caused his stock to go down. He may only be worth a 2nd round pick if even that and he's certainly more valuable to the Cowboys than a #2 pick would be. I've said it over and over you can't move Romo until you have his replacement on the team. It has to be a QB that gives the Cowboys at least as good a chance to win as he does.
