The Dallas Cowboys have faced a quiet 2010 offseason, which isn't normal to Jerry Jones. No trades, despite rumors (Marion Barber to be exact).

Dallas has also been quiet on the free-agent market, which made noise within the first few days of the period.

However, on what seemed to be a busy day on Good Friday, Jerry Jones decided to part with two veterans in offensive lineman Flozell Adams and safety Ken Hamlin.

Adams was the veteran left tackle for the Cowboys since being drafted in 1998. However, Jones has decided to go in a different direction.

Can this direction be pursuing Ravens offensive tackle Jared Gaither?

Formerly drafted by Baltimore in the supplemental draft, Gaither has blossomed into a Pro Bowl-caliber left tackle.

However, the Ravens selected the future left tackle in Michael Oher in last year's draft. It is only a matter of time until Oher makes the full transition to the position.

Gaither wants to be paid like a left tackle, which already isn't in the Ravens favor.

Since then, rumors from Washington to Detroit to San Francisco has occurred.

Dallas and Baltimore could get a deal done right now if Dallas gives up their first round pick (27th overall).

Despite some people questioning his character, Gaither is only 24 years old, and is already primed for blocking any quarterback's blind side.

It became clear offensive line was an issue in the loss to the Vikings in the conference semifinals.

If the Ravens can get a little more then what the asking price currently is of a second round pick, Baltimore would be satisfied.

With needs at defensive end, corner back, and tight end, Ozzie Newsome would have the possibility of taking two of the favorite prospects within the Ravens organization: Jermaine Gresham and Terrence Cody.

As of this moment, the Ravens are waiting to hear the first offer that comes to mind. The Dallas Cowboys may end up as the first one knocking on their door.
