As league insiders try to divine the identity of the Cowboys player who supposedly was the subject of recent trade talks, the early speculation focuses on tight end Martellus Bennett.

At first, the speculation centered on Bennett and cornerback Orlando Scandrick. But, currently, the signs are pointing to Bennett.

Bennett was a second-round pick in 2008. He's stuck on the depth chart behind veteran Jason Witten.

Earlier today, owner Jerry Jones disclosed that he received a trade offer for one of the team's young players, but that Jones declined to do the deal. Jones said that the offer was not made for one of the team's three talented tailbacks.
