Jason Ferguson Traded to Miami

The Cowboys never seem to wait too long before making moves in the off season, and this year is no different. Just one day after locking up Adams the Cowboys have arranged a trade agreement with Miami for Jason Ferguson.

Jason Ferguson is being traded to the Miami Dolphins for their sixth round draft choice. Not the pick that many Cowboys fans were hoping for since so many fans have had their hopes set high for Darren McFadden, but rest assure this is a good deal. The Cowboys were going to run into a problem at some point this off season with running out of cap room. Ferguson being traded now frees up 2 million dollars in cap space for this season.

Jason Ferguson has played well for the Cowboys over the years, but became expendable when he tore his bicep and Jay Ratliff filled in at Nose admirably. After the Cowboys re-signed Ratliff to a 20.5 million dollar deal, it became increasingly easy to see that Ferguson could be somewhere else next season. Tank Johnson will continue to back up Ratliff this season.

    Actually the trade is for a 6th round pick next year, they’ll swap 6th round picks this year giving Dallas the 1st pick of the 6th round in this draft.

    Thanks for the clarification. I didn’t catch that.

    I hate to hear this! I knew it would happen though when he got injured though. I went to school with Jason and played ball with him! Seems to be something with the Big Tuna and Jason….He was with him with the Jets and the Parcells brough him to Dallas and now he’s going to Miami! Not so sure I’m becoming a dolphin fan just yet though!

  4. Thanks for the clarification
