From Twitter looks like we've traded C Ryan Cook to Dallas for a 7th.

Pretty nothing trade really, but I do like trades like these where we get something for someone unlikely to make the roster (or any real contribution if they did). IMO these late picks can be important, not for the selection in itself but because it allows us to move up for the players we want in the 3rd/4th/5th rounds.

he was costing us a mil or slightly more and Samuda had shown something. I didnt like the pick up initially and he was pretty much an insurance policy.

Something for nothing like you say, opportunistic move

I liked the guy, he was like 6 points lower than Pouncey in madden 13, decent back up, lol.


7th though is iffy, should have been a 6th from Dallas a possible playoff team.

Whats the deal on this guy? Can't say I know anything about him. Our Centers suck, so if he is an upgrade then awesome.

Dude was going to get cut. An undrafted rookie took his spot. So I would not call him an upgrade. More like a backup center.

He will probably fit your system better.

I knew we had a big trade in the works!!

Seriously though, good trade for both sides. We get over a mil off our salary cap, when we have another guy just as good to be our backup, and Dallas gets a guy to compete who will work better in their system. Win/Win

Was he going to get cut because of bad play or because there was a cheaper option?

cheaper option and better fit for us. He is a solid backup. I liked the guy. But the new guy was a better fit for our new scheme, and Cook was costing us about 1.5 mil. He will be competitive for y'all. Good move for Dallas in my opinion.

You might call him an upgrade if you'd seen our current centers. Our starter was an undrafted free agent and the back-up is a guard who played his FIRST EVER snaps at center only a few weeks ago...So I wouldn't be so quick to say he isn't an upgrade Laughing
