    The NFL-operated Around the League Podcast discussed the notion of trading Tony Romo, in response to Jerry Jones' comments that you don't rebuild with him on the roster. They mentioned the Rams and Cardinals as the two most likely bidders if Romo was to be put on the market, proclaiming the Cardinals a favorite in the NFC with Romo under center. What would it take for you to pull the trigger and trade Romo?

    Presently, about $28 million in cap space. We might as well consider what it would take to bring Staubach out of retirement.

    Two-1st Rounders, a vet guard like LA, and one mammoth disruptive NG..
    After all Romo is like 5th most prolific passer of all time.. Right Homers?

    I would love for us to trade Romo so we can have a year of Weeden/Orton. I love how we think getting a QB is easy. Have the Redskins taught us nothing? And lets be honest in today NFL who trades for a starting QB? I mean I can't think of the last time a STARTING QB was traded. Not a QB that made it to a starter or a QB that was a starter that had injury. But a healthy starting QB being traded, no releases or anything.

    Upon further review Jay Culter is the most recent. Denver got 2 first rounders, a 2nd and a player. Cutler also asked for the trade which could have brought down his value a fraction.

    When i saw the 2 firsts a 2nd and a player. It does seem good. but Denver had 2 years with Orton (missed playoffs). An Orton/Tebow year (made playoffs). The only reason that this wasn't as horrible as it seems is because Manning broke his neck and Denver got LUCKY. Could we afford 3 seasons of what if's and Orton/Weeden?

    With all those picks you could go get any qb in this draft, a player, and still have a few extra picks to build other positions/units

    The AZ deal seems stupid for us, we would still have no QB. The Rams deal is just nuts

    My reply was fantasy based so that it would coincide with the fantasy discussion opinion created by the Around the League podcast posted in the OP. Do I really need to make my crazy post read even more insane?

    Unless Romo's back is kaput, he's going nowhere.

    Good gravy people.

    You are 100% correct.

    Did anyone read the OP? It said, "The NFL-operated Around the League Podcast discussed the notion of trading Tony Romo..."

    Come on people. The OP's a joke. The reply was a joke. Can I get a ha ha?

    I'll preface by saying no chance this happens.

    However Cooper and two firsts seems about right to me. Maybe with the second first rounder being a conditional pick given Romo's injury issues.

    You have the makings of a dominant oline, you can now stock up on dlineman in the draft and maybe take a guy like Fales, McCarron, Murray or Smith in the middle part of the draft. This year would be a write off, but that might not be a bad thing with the QB class of 2015 promising to be a very good one.

    How to tell a player isn't going to be traded:
    1.) Owner/GM signs player to a a contract for over a hundred million dollars.
    2.) Player hangs out with the head coach during the off-season.

    Not unless your trading Bryant, and Murray as well. No sense in keepin them around if your gonna rebuild the O with a new QB.

    Drew Brees turned out to be a steal.. While back though.

    Romo may bounce back and pick up his Denver-esque game skills... That's what we're all hoping and praying for here at least...
