There are rumors circulating that the Cowboys will “listen” to offers for wide receiver Dez Bryant this offseason.  It’s really hard to believe the team would even consider moving the rookie considering how he dominated games at times in 2010.

According to former Cowboy Patrick Crayton, the team allowed Bryant to get away with a lot of things this season, including being late to meetings.  Bryant’s lackluster attitude and refusal to dive into the playbook, some have claimed, may have caused the ‘Boys to have soured on Bryant already.  Is that enough for Dallas to allow him to walk?

We’ll see how quickly the team denies this report (which I’m assuming will happen).  As PFT points out, it’s possible the team leaked the information so that Bryant takes his off-field duties a little more seriously.

If moving Bryant really is a possibility, I still can’t imagine a team yielding a valuable enough package to make the deal worth it for Dallas.  Even two first-round picks, in my opinion, wouldn’t be enough to unload a player who displayed as much talent as Bryant.  I’ve already gone on record saying he will be a Hall of Famer.

What do you think?  What would you need to receive to trade the Cowboys’ star rookie receiver?
