In the past few days, Calvin Watkins raised the question whether or not the Cowboys should consider trading rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant. Watkins said that a team official told him that they would consider trading Bryant if Dallas received an offer. Since the initial report, things have gotten out of hand and people have turned Watkins report into “Cowboys considering trading Dez Bryant.”
No, they aren’t.
The team official simply said they would consider it and listen to the offer. They aren’t actively seeking a trade. Every team listens to offers for every player on their roster. There is nothing wrong with that. One positive thing has come from this report: Dez Bryant has heard what he needs to walk on as a pro and now it is up to him to show his improvements. Dez Bryant is going nowhere.
