    I heard this question from Bill Barnwell Grantland's lead football writer. He thinks the Chiefs should do this, but should the Cowboys?

    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.

    I would trade any of our players for top round draft picks.

    Top pick this year is likely Luke Joeckel.

    Not in this draft. In 2014, yes.

    Not unless we get a pick that insures drafting a proper replacement QB and another high pick as well no later than next year and in the first round. Preferably the top of next years draft as well.

    In fact it'd likely take a high one this year with the above plus another 1-3 round pick this year plus a pick next year.

    Year or two too late, IMO....the time to do the was last year for Luck, better yet, they should have tanked and traded the year before so maybe they get the #1 pick to use for Luck plus have a slew of picks for trading Romo, etc

    They probably would be in better shape cap wise and just as competitive in 2013 as they will be without doing this but the long term future would have been brighter

    There is not a player I would not trade if the offer was good enough. I would want more than a 1st rd pick, if that is all that would be offered then keep your 1 I'll stick with Romo.

    I would've traded the whole draft for Andrew Luck or RG3. Everybody.

    Yes, i would.

    Then trade down, get a bunch of great picks, re-tool our O-line and D-line completely, use Orton for next year where we would draft a QB.

    Of course, it would probably mean no playoffs next year, but it would be worth it if we can get 3-4 SOLID core pieces for our lines in 1 draft.

    Of course, from what i see i'm in the minority. :p

    In 2014 you are talking Bridgewater, Clowney or Lee. Like that alot better.

    That's what he was saying.

    I think all GMs would make that trade for Luck.

    Yes, I'd do it, but then I'd consider flipping that pick for a package which would include a #1 pick next year (preferably to a terrible team with a poor QB [to insure losses] i.e. Jax, Raiders, Cards), so that we could have ammo for a potentially better QB draft next year.

    We need the closest thing to potential fanchise QB possibility as possible so I would want options...plenty of options.

    As it is now, I don't dislike Romo, but I just feel like we're riding out our time with him, instead of being proactive.

    If KC resigns Bowe, that would be ideal for Romo and KC. With Jamaal Charles and Hillis, Romo could play action all day long to Bowe and Breaston.
