Couch to Dallas...Again?

With San Francisco signal caller Jeff Garcia landing in Cleveland earlier today, the Browns are now faced with an interesting delimma at quarterback. As first reported by SilverStarDigest last year, interest in Tim Couch by the Dallas Cowboys is very real. We've got the latest in this report.

It was just one year ago that we first reported of a major blockbuster trade that almost went down between the Dallas Cowboys and the Cleveland Browns.

As first reported on last April, Couch and Jamel White were going to Dallas along with the 21st pick for Dexter Coakley and the fifth pick.

But it didn't happen.

For whatever reason, Bill Parcells and company backed out at the last minute, deciding to go with either Quincy Carter or Chad Hutchinson as their clear cut starter.

Tim Couch completed 120-of-203 passes for 1319 yards, 7 touchdowns and 6 interceptions last year.
Now, the circumstances have changed, and changed considerably.

After today's trade, the Browns have three starting quarterbacks on their roster in Couch, Kelly Holcomb, and Jeff Garcia.

It almost goes without saying that one of these players won't be with the team next season, and in all likilihood, it will be Tim Couch.

Meanwhile the Cowboys have settled on Quincy Starter as their starter after the former Georgia star helped led Dallas back to the playoffs for the first time in 5 years in 2003.

Or have they?

Cowboys officials have made it known publicly that they'll look to upgrade at every position possible this offseason, and that includes at quarterback.

Quincy Carter was a risky selection in the second round coming out of college while Couch was the #1 overall pick in the draft.

"The interest is real," a source told SilverStarDigest early Tuesday. "Couch was not happy in Cleveland last year, especially in how he was treated near the end of the season. He didn't expect to be back next season, and he won't be back."

The expectation here is that Cowboys will offer a second round pick for Couch, whether or not that is enough to execute the trade remains to be seen.

There are several members of the Browns and Cowboys organizations that are extremely, which is one reason we believe this deal could go down. However, we won't have more information concerning this potential trade until later Wednesday evening.
