Dallas Cowboy Legend says we need to trade Bradie James to the Eagles

Gill Brandt was the chief talent scout and vice president of player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys for 29 years. From 1960-1989, Brandt evaluated talent for Tom Landry and Tex Schramm. He is part of what made the Cowboys who they are today. And if Brandt says Dallas should trade with their NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles, it should be taken seriously.

Brandt, now NFL.com’s main personnel guru, has suggested that both the Cowboys and Eagles could improve their clubs by making a deal before next week’s trade deadline. In an article published yesterday on NFL.com, Brandt explained the trade in detail:

If the Eagles don’t do my proposed deal with New England, they still need to find a way to improve defensively. Philadelphia has already proven the organization isn’t afraid to deal with a division foe, so this time, the Eagles turn to Dallas for help. A deal of Rodgers-Cromartie for Bradie James helps both teams. The Eagles fill a void at linebacker. The Cowboys would get a necessary upgrade at corner and will soon have second-round pick Bruce Carter healthy and capable of stepping in for James.

I agree the Cowboys could use the upgrade at corner. But if getting rid of Bradie James is based on the proposed play of Bruce Carter, I’m not sold. Due to injury, Carter hasn’t seen any playing time in the NFL. And with our secondary finally at full strength, I’m not so sure the upgrade would be worth it. But replacing the aging Terence Newman needs to be addressed at some point. And I’m also not sold on Orlando Scandrick being that replacement.

So what do you think?

Would you trade Bradie James for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie?
