NFL writer: Cowboys would be good fit for Carson Palmer and Reggie Bush

With Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline quickly approaching, Yahoo! Sports NFL writer Jason Cole listed 14 players who could be traded.
The group did not include any current Cowboys, which either means Jason Garrett and company have done a good job of trimming the fat or there aren’t many players on the roster that would fetch a decent return. The former would seem like the case.
Either way, the Cowboys were a good fit for three interesting names, and two were at the quarterback position. Cincinnati’s Carson Palmer and Carolina backup Jimmy Clausen were the two names.
Palmer would rather be retired than be a member of the Bengals and Clausen will only play for the Panthers if Cam Newton gets injured. Cole speculated that acquiring Palmer, a two-time Pro Bowler, would cost a third round pick. Cole called Clausen, a second round pick in 2010, a “marginal prospect.”
“The other (Carolina) players can’t stand him and he probably needs to go somewhere else,” Cole added. “If he fetches a fifth-round pick (a conditional seventh might be all) at this point, that’s a bonus.”
The other name and probably most intriguing is Miami running back Reggie Bush. The Dolphins traded for Bush in the off-season but have already discovered that he is not the answer to their running game. Bush has 40 carries for 119 yards this season.
“They really can’t maximize his value as a weapon in open-field situations,” Cole wrote about Miami’s relationship with Bush. “Throw in the fact that the Dolphins should be playing in the Suck For (Andrew) Luck sweepstakes and there is no reason to keep Bush. Send him to a contender.”
