Dallas shopping Spears, Carpenter?

Yahoo Rumors

One of the rumors making the rounds at the Senior Bowl this week is that the Dallas Cowboys are shopping former first-round picks DE Marcus Spears and LB Bobby Carpenter according to the Dallas Morning News.

Carpenter simply isn't a fit in a 3-4 defense, which makes Bill Parcells' decision to pick him pretty puzzling. Carpenter couldn't get on the field in any of the Cowboys' defensive packages this season but was a solid special teams player. He wasn't considered a reach when the Cowboys drafted him 19th overall two years ago, so some 4-3 teams might be interested.

Spears isn't a bad player, but he hasn't lived up to his first-round billing. If the Cowboys get rid of Spears, Jay Ratliff could take his job, with Jason Ferguson and Tank Johnson forming a good NT tandem.

I got a feeling that they're just putting feelers out to see what they might get for them. I don't seriously think that they will trade either one unless someone blows them out of the water with an offer.
