Could one more trade with the Cowboys be in store?

More news about Greg Ellis leaving the Cowboys is surfacing. He has been up and down with management, publicly discussing his future with the team at times. It appears he will not be with the Cowboys this season, one way or another. Will all the talk about Kevin Carter coming to Detroit, I think it may be a better move to grab a guy like Ellis. He prefers a 4-3 End position and is capable of double digit sack totals still. A 12 year vet, he is described as a leader in the locker room and as a guy that is well liked.
A solid DE at 6’6″ and 262 lbs. Ellis can play both the run and pass although he is a pass rusher first. I think on this Detroit team, with Grady next to him, he could get 8 or 9 sacks. Combine that with DeWayne White at 6 and you have a decent pass rush. Not great, but respectable. Bring I Kevin Carter and Cliff Avril to spell your starters and you have a rotation of guys that can get the job done.
I will be watching this situation as closely as I am able.
