Should the Dallas Cowboys trade for Maurice Jones-Drew?

The Dallas Cowboys have hoped and prayed that DeMarco Murray could stay healthy for sixteen games.  He even vowed to the Dallas Cowboys fan base that he would could stay healthy and play all 16 games, and here it is game 5 and he is out again.

The Dallas Cowboys have been lucky on one end, because wide receivers Dwayne Harris, Cole Beasley, and Terrence Williams have all step up big time with Miles Austin being out.  Now Miles Austin is back, and he was held to zero catches, but was targeted only one time.  So here is my question, the Dallas Cowboys have pretty good depth at the wide out position but need a running back.

The Jacksonville Jaguars on the other hand, need help every where, and Cecil Shorts is injured.  So could the Dallas Cowboys swing a trade with the Jaguars sending Maurice Jones Drew to the America’s Team for Miles Austin and a 4th round draft pick?

If Jacksonville would be willing to do this they would pick up a top 125 pick in the NFL draft and a future starting wide receiver.  This would solidify a wide receiving core for a quarterback next year.  The Jags wide receiving core would consist of Justin Blackmon, Miles Austin and Cecil Shorts in the slot.

What do you think football fans? Is it a smart trade? I know one person that would be smiling……TEDDY BRIDGEWATER
