    According to ESPN Dallas, the Cowboys have had "internal discussions" about trading Felix Jones.



    If we can grab him for no more than a 4th round pick I say we do it, Jones has had a lot of injuries but, I think would be a nice compliment to Mathews, The upside he provides with his NFL experience out weighs any player we'd pick up in the draft in later rounds


    The only downside to this is he'd most likely be a one year rental based off that he is a free agent next year, but if accepts his role as a back up we maybe able to sign him for @ the price we offered Tolbert

    I'd give a 5th. Simply because I don't think you can do much better with a 5th or later at the RB position in this draft.

    The problem will be his contract, close to $2M cap hit, and we don't have much room thanks to all the TEs and KRs we have signed.

    5th rounder at most for him and that's only if he restructures some of his contract too

    pass. AJ has great strength in finding gems UFA. Before we trade for FJ I'd rather trade that pick rather than waste it.

    Pass. I want AJ to pick a running back in this draft, Polk from Washington if he lasts to the third round.

    Good call, RTL...

    Yes, let's sign him up before anyone else realizes that he is available. He would be an asset to our offense, and we can probably pick him up for a just a few million. Since he left his last team he no longer considers himself a cancer in the locker room.

    He's a runningback, we can probably sign a UDFA who will be as good, cost us less against the cap, and won't carry the opportunity cost of a draft pick.

    I love me some Felix Jones, always have. In our O he could become a total beast... Dunno whether he'd be happy to come in as understudy though. Having said that Mathews is always getting nicked so I could see them getting the same amount of carries in a season.

    Is Tolbert even that much worse than Felix Jones? lol. For an undrafted free agent, Tolbert did well for us, we need a replacement for him, I guess Jones would be ok for the right price, he probably is a better fit for another team though.

    in the last year of his rookie deal id pass on brining him in... would be more of a 1 year rental kind of trade ... not to mention we already have 1 talented injury prone rb on the roster no need to bring in a second one ;)
