Some pundits have floated the idea of trading Tony Romo, but one former NFL quarterback thinks the Dallas Cowboys should go even further and also trade their star, but injured, wide receiver Dez Bryant.
Big question, if you are the Cowboys do you think about trading Dez & Romo? The future is now, illuminate all distractions going forward.

McNabb, who was a rival of the Cowboys playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, addressed his thoughts on ESPN Radio Monday.
“Think about this: Going into the draft — their defense has been playing outstanding — go into the draft, you draft a pretty good wide receiver, maybe in the second round, go after a defensive player in the first round and now you build with that three-headed monster that we’ve seen them be so successful with. The offensive line is stable, something we’ve seen when Troy Aikman was there. You already have your running back, and then you have depth — you have (Darren) McFadden and you also have some other guys to play.
“Think of bringing in a wide receiver that can be a top-dog wide receiver (with) no problems, because at this point, you’re not even talking about Dez. Remember, just a couple weeks ago, we were talking about if he was late (to meetings), how many times he was late, not showing up to treatments, didn’t want to hear bad news from doctors — that becomes a distraction to the rest of the wide receiving corps. (Brice) Butler is stepping up and playing well, you have Terrance Williams playing well; I mean, the ageless wonder in (Jason) Witten is catching balls and getting first downs; Cole Beasley was granted an opportunity to step away from training camp because he was questioning if he was still wanting to play football, and he’s the No. 1 wide receiver for them. He has that connection with Dak Prescott.
