According to Fanhouse.com, the Dallas Cowboys are currently looking to trade outside linebacker Greg Ellis.

Ellis, who turns 34 years old in August, has always been a reliable player with the Cowboys, but was not invited to a team meeting on Thursday and was not invited to practice.

People close to the team believe the organization wants to move 2007 1st-round pick Anthony Spencer into the starting outside linebacker position.

Many veterans such as quarterback Tony Romo and tight end Jason Witten were invited to the meeting, but Ellis was not, leading many to believe he might not be with the team much longer.

It will be interesting to see what the Cowboys can get in a deal for Ellis. The team would lose depth outside, but Spencer has shown he is a capable starter in this league.

The Cowboys might not get anything more than mid-round pick for Ellis. It will be up to the coaching staff and owner Jerry Jones to evaluate their options.
