Dallas Cowboys Speculation: Detroit Lions and 5 Best Trades for Tashard Choice

To say that Tashard Choice's time as a member of the Dallas Cowboys has been a bit of a roller coaster ride is putting it mildly.

Choice was the Cowboys' 2008 Fourth Round pick in the NFL Draft, bursting onto the scene in 2009 where he became a vital part of Dallas' version of the Wildcat offense (dubbed the "Razorback" formation). Choice would post 349 rushing yards on just 64 carries with three touchdowns in his second NFL season.

2010 would prove to be a large disappointment for former Georgia Tech running back, posting only 3 games with twenty or more rushing yards. A large part of his lack of yardage was due to a lack of touches however. Choice had double-digit rushing attempts in just 2 games last season.

Though the 'Boys did cut veteran running back Marion Barber earlier this free agency, that doesn't mean they're handing Choice the second slot on the running back depth chart. In fact, while Choice has been nursing a calf strain, Lonyae Miller has been the talk of training camp.

Miller, who spent much of 2010 on the practice squad for Dallas, has been impressing teammates and coaches alike, so much that ESPN Dallas writer Tim MacMahon believes Choice might be traded or cut in the near future.

If the Cowboys do opt to use their 2008 draft pick as trade bait, there will be a fair amount of offers coming their way. Here are the top 5 teams who could make a run at the Georgia-born Cowboy.
