Could Cowboys trade Barber?

3/28/2010 8:49:27 PM

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports via Twitter that he is hearing a former Pro Bowl running back could be dealt to another team within his division before or during the draft. Could be Marion Barber.

Robinson says his initial thought was Clinton Portis, but his trade value just isn't very strong. But factors around Barber (contract, split carries, etc.) make sense.

Recently, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando, Fla., that the club has thought about starting Felix Jones rather than Marion Barber.

While it isn't hard to believe that the Cowboys would consider trading Barber, it's doubtful they would want to trade him within their own division.
