    Grab another pick for a guy that will be long gone by the time we are ready to win.

    Matt Forte has no value. He wouldn't be on this team if not for his guaranteed contract

    Put down the controller,turn off the PS4 and go outside and get some fresh air. Clear your head a little so maybe you can come back and talk real life football

    If he's healthy he can be an asset with his receiving abilities, especially with how thin they are in WR......but health is a big question mark.

    why would they do that? they have DMC and alfred morris while zeke is suspended and then zeke when he comes back. makes no sense for them to add an old RB for a few games

    How about a strait up trade for Roger Staubach? :)

    Hope it's a REALLY HIGH 8TH. Like, the first pick in the 8th.

    The Cowboys don't have an 8th rounder next year, but they do have two in the 9th. Forte for two 9th rounders and a conditional 10th and we have a deal.

    The Jets could offer Sheldon Richardson and Forte for a 2nd round pick and agree to pick up as much of their salaries as is legally allowed for this season. That'd be like buying a 2nd round pick next year while getting rid of a headache that the Cowboys might find attractive and also giving them some depth at RB for the first 6 games.

    I'd give the Cowboys a 2nd rounder to get Sheldon off this team.

    For what possible reason would the Cowboys trade ANY draft pick for a guy who'd be at the bottom of their depth chart?

    Why is it that every absurd hypothetical trade that would never actually happen with any team has to be with the Cowboys in every Jet fan fantasy? Is Jerry Jones wearing some sign around his neck that says he just has to get pumped and dumped by the Jets and only the Jets forever and always?

    I'm really asking, is it some ingredient in the green Kool Aid that just triggers this line of thinking in people?

    Why just a pick? I think Forte for Dez,Dak, and their first and third plus 2019s first and second is fair. ;)

    I applaud your eagerness to get rid of Sheldon. I wouldn't go that far, but I definitely want him gone.

    Wouldn't an 8th actually be next year's first?
