Gil Brandt Likes A 'Boys-Eagles Trade

Normally I wouldn't point out a trade idea from some random internet outpost, but Gil Brandt of is hardly a rando.

The Cowboys' longtime Vice President of player personnel was ahead of his time in terms of scouting and preparing for the draft, and apparently wouldn't have a problem trading within the division, either.

First, he says the Eagles should trade with New England to improve their respective defenses. And if that doesn't work, he writes that the Cowboys should get involved, proposing a Bradie James for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie trade.

With all their injuries, the Eagles have a void and linebacker, and James is in the last year of his contract with the Cowboys, plus the team has Sean Lee, Keith Brooking and rookie Bruce Carter, set to come off the Non-Football Injury list next week.

Rodgers-Cromartie, who came over from Arizona in an offseason trade for Kevin Kolb, hasn't been a huge difference-maker for the Eagles, but could he help the Cowboys?

Is Carter ready to play?
