Dallas Cowboys Trade Rumors: Could Tashard Choice Be Gone Tomorrow?

With Felix Jones locked into the RB1 position in the depth chart and rookie tailback Demarco Murray playing well in spots, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could be looking to move fourth-year running back Tashard Choice by tomorrow's trade deadline.

Jones told NFL Network's Alex Flanagan on NBC Sunday that he has received numerous calls on the availability of  Choice and will consider dealing the running back back before Tuesday's trade deadline. Choice, has carried the ball 26 times for 67 yards through five games this season. In Sunday's game he carried the ball five times for 14 yards in a 20-16 loss to the Patriots.

Could Jones be legitimately fielding offers for Choice, or is this letting teams now that Choice is actually available?

Choice was drafted by the Cowboys in the 4th-round of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Georgia Tech and in his fourth-season he's carried the ball 248 times for 1,131 yards and 8 touchdowns.


Jerry Jones Questions Playcalling After Loss.

Well, you knew this was coming. After blowing another late lead, Jerry Jones questioned the playcalling after the game. He suggested that the Cowboys went “conservative” down the stretch and wondered aloud why Garrett did not “run a little offense down there” with the game on the line.

Michael Smith has the full quotes.

“This game was decided right down there at the end, and I am so proud of these players, the way they competed tonight,” Jones said. “We rolled the dice at the end and went conservative rather than try to get some points and it bit us.”

Whenever you get the ball into the hands of a player like Brady at home, you’ve got problems,” Jones said. “We are up here on their field and we knew what the odds were, so we flipped a coin and it came up against us. We know what [the Patriots] are about and we knew what our challenge was here. If you were in a playoff game, you’d probably drive it home. You always second guess whether or not we should have tried to run a little offense down there instead of running it three times.”

The playcalling could certainly be called into question as Brett Perryman pointed out, but it’s never good when it’s your owner doing the questioning.

But we should be used to it by now. It’s just Jerry being Jerry.


Felix Jones Injury: Cowboys RB Suffers Ankle Injury, Won't Return

ESPN Dallas is reporting that Cowboys running back Felix Jones has suffered a sprained left ankle and won’t return to today’s game against the Patriots. Jones was playing in today’s game after suffering a dislocated shoulder against the 49ers two weeks ago.

Jones appeared to injure his ankle on a seven-yard reception during the Cowboys’ last drive before the half. In his absence DeMarco Murray has received the bulk of the carries for Dallas, assisted by Tashard Choice.
