    Not true. Teams don't even begin to stack their board until after the season. They have scout grades on players but where they rank, who has priority over who, who fits and who doesn't, none of that has been done.

    There's not a team in the league that has any plan right now what they'll be doing with their picks. So this information is obviously fake and a cry for attention.

    I appreciate all inside information, but I seriously doubt that someone in the know at Valley Ranch is divulging information that is basically top secret. If it isn't then it's general knowledge stuff that any random nobody could put together.

    I'd say having interest in Forte and Desean Jackson is just the organization doing it due diligence, just like the reported interest in Cam Newton in last year's draft, doesnt mean they will be actively trying to sign the guys

    And a running back coming off a severe knee injury.

    Broken ankles aren't as serious and MCL and ACL tears.

    The only way we go after Forte is if we have an attractive offer on the table for both Murray and Felix.

    I don't think if makes sense to give an RB a premier second contract. You rarely get your moneys worth because of the high rate of injury and burnout at the position. It is the first contract signed at draft that gets you value.

    like i said the poster is well respected on that board. he gave us details about sam hurd before the media got to it.

    plus lets say someone were told to "fake" being an insider...who in their right mind would use forte and/or desean to get credibility?

    I am a member of that site. Here is another quote taken from the guy on the reasoning behind looking at Desean Jackson.

    "the DeSean thing actually had to do with Dez possibly not being a Cowboy next season,im sure all of you will disagree with me but it is a real possibility his latest antics with him not paying his debts has annoyed the Cowboys front office they are not looking forward to having one of their players get served papers at the team hotel or at the Meadowlands on Sunday."

    Once again not my words so don't kill me!

    I see absolutely zero chance we try to sign either Forte of Jackson. We don't need them. We've got two very good backs and three WRs, with lots of money going to Austin and Bryant. Forte and Jackson will get top $ as number one backs and receivers. Absolutely zero chance we go after either one. Besides that, I'd throw up if Jackson became a Cowboy. I can't stand that show boat.

    I truly believe that we will be looking for a pashrusher in the draft and will draft one in the early rds,a good pash rush is the real tonic for this defense and secondary.

    And ANYONE thinking Red Ball wants Desean Jackson is drunk or stupid. So ANYONE claiming this is inside information is BS.

    They really need to fire that janitor.

    my bad then - i just saw it.

    i honestly don't really care about it but i'm sure jones and company is tired of all the media making something of it.

    why it really matters is beyond me because if it wasn't this they'd just hype up something else.

    Holley and Ogletree will both be gone. They'll be replaced by younger players with a higher upside like Harris, Holmes, and Radway.
