    Demarco Murray - Already on the team.

    Until the team shows commitment to the run, it would be asinine to devote a first round pick to another running back.

    This poll is humorous. I mean, the outcome of the poll. :)

    Yea, lets ignore lineman and safeties with a #1 pick next season. RB's and TE's, there's the ticket.

    I can see where some teams would do this trade(in a better position with less needs and no RB) but Dallas is in no shape to throw away early picks when there are more important positions of need. Even if Trent is > Demarco, it is not by much at this point in their careers.

    the complaint this and other boards have is that we spend our resources on skill positions and not on
    the trenches. This draft we're surly going Dline and maybe Oline. Trent would not change our fortunes
    nearly enough compared to a kick *** rush line man.

    A 1st for a RB? No way. Colts overpaid.

    Not to mention they have a brutal schedule (den, sea and sf in the next 5 weeks) and are not lighting the world on fire. Their pick could end up being a high one.

    That all looks good on the surface but the Browns have had absolutely nobody on the outside to prevent teams from stacking the box and focusing on Trent. Josh Gordon comes back this week... other than that they have nobody with Weeden throwing to them. I wouldn't make the trade, but Trent is better than Murray.

    Wish people would realize this is a team sport and looking at stats alone only tells you part of the story.

    Since we have already devoted a lot of resources to the position this deal wouldnt fit our team, but that doesn't mean its a bad deal. For the Colts situation, this was a great deal.

    Suck for Luck worked for Indy, maybe Sell for Manziel will work for Cleveland.

    I'd trade for another Tight End. No need for RB's actually if you dont want to run the ball anyway.

    ^This. Trent's former team sucks. He goes from loser to winner in a blink of an eye.

    That might be a deal worth doing.

    I wouldn't even trade the 2014 second round pick for Richardson.

    Luck/Richardson could be Peyton/James all over again. Most RBs aren't worth giving up a 1st Rounder but Richardson is a stud who's going to beast in that offense for a long time.

    I have no idea what Cleveland is thinking and feel bad for their fans, Richardson was one of the only things they had going for them.

    No way I'd make that deal for the Cowboys. We are not one player away and if we were it sure wouldn't be a RB.
