It would likely be something like a fifth round pick in 2013 and a third in 2014 to get T.J. Yates to Dallas, but he's worth the price tag.
The truth is, the 2013 quarterback class gets real ugly after the first several guys. There's not anybody worth considering after the third round.
That means the Cowboys better give their fellow Texas team a call and figure out Yates' price. Tony Romo should be the starter for Dallas next season, but at 34 next year, it's time to find a contingency plan.
In Week 17 against the Redskins, Romo was the fourth-oldest quarterback starting that Sunday. Yates is young and helped the Texans not only win games, but win a playoff game last year.
Whether those traits are something that Yates could continue to do in a starting role has yet to be seen. Still, he has a better chance of doing so than any quarterback in this year's draft not named Geno Smith.
