    Hey guys, what do you think we really can get for Glover in the upcoming draft? To me, maybe a # 2 and a # 4, that would really help. Then, looks like we are looking at Manny Lawson and Gabe Watson in upcoming draft or another outside linebacker.
    If we can trade down to about the 21st spot or 24th, not any lower I am thinking, then we can get another # 3 draft pick or # 2 if trade lower from 18th to about the 24th. I remember when we traded with the Chiefs one year, moved down to about 2-3 spots, we got a # 3 pick with swap of #1's and another 5th draft pick best I remember.
    That would really load us for another super draft, our own # 1, 2 and 3 plus a #2 & 4 or 5 for Glover, and a # 2 or 3 for trading down. that would give us 6 picks in first 4 rounds. Jimmy Johnson proved the theory, more draft picks you have, more choice of players you can take, maybe miss one, but hit on others. To me, we need another super draft with players that want to play and have the heart.

    You could get a 5th or maybe a 4th round pick for Glover give his contract status couple with the fact that everyone knows the Cowboys are looking for 3-4 personnel.

    LOL.., The only way any team would give up a pick for a player in Glover position is if one team really wants him bad and does not want to get into a bidding war with other teams who they may feel also has an interest. Even in that case your talking a day 2 pick at best.

    This guy has been to 5 of the last 6 probowls. He's a team player. I predict a trade with a restructered contract. He could put a team over the hump for the playoffs or provide vet leadership to a young team.

    He has value, lots of it.

    But why would he restructure when he can make more money on the open market after he's released?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Can you say you're certain he'll be released if he isn't traded?

    While you're at it, who are we drafting?

    You get 2 or 3 teams that does their homework and realize that he's an excellent 4-3 passrusher, they will give up atleast a 3.

    Would be very happy with a 3rd but would more then settle for a 4th--to replace the one we traded to Eagles for Canty. And for those who think 4th round pick isn't worth anything, last year we drafted Marion Barber III with our pick in the 4th and traded our 5th rounder (and 4th in 06) to Eagles (31st pick) to select Chris Canty, so don't look down your nose at 4th round picks as there lot of good players we can still get there.

    This post makes sense. Glover has pretty decent trade value, assuming that he resructures his contract. As to why Glover would agree to it....its pretty simple, if it happens it means he gets more money this year. I will admit though, with his high salary number this year, it might be tough to find someone willing to pony up that much up front money for a signing bonus. Glover can still play at a high level. We do not HAVE TO cut him.

    I hope your right but there is a good possibility that Dallas will have to outright release him before his roster bonus is do in March. I don't dispute that Glover can still play he clearly can but teams around the league also understand this is about money not Glovers ability to play. FA and Salary cap changed a lot of things, in the past when none of this was even an issue Dallas may have just held on to Glover but now days a team has to think about a players salary and how it can effect the teams budget.
