    Cowboys acquire Caesar Rayford from Colts
    Posted by Darin Gantt on September 3, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    APMaybe the Cowboys have been hitting the “secret sauce,” in recent days, because they’re suddenly trade-happy.

    According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas, the Cowboys have sent a conditional pick in 2015 to the Colts in exchange for defensive end Caesar Rayford.

    He’s the second player they’ve brought in, after acquiting linebacker Edgar Jones from the Chiefs and sending defensive lineman Sean Lissemore to the Chargers and tight end Dante Rosario to the Bears.

    The Colts were trying the 6-foot-7 Rayford as an outside linebacker, but his physical stature alone makes him a better fit in a 4-3 defense. The 27-year-old was previously in the CFL and the Arena League, with no NFL experience.

    Good for him, hope he gets playing time

    A 2015 draft pick? Hmmm. I think we're down two picks in 2014. Hmmm.

    I understand the NFL is a business, but do they have to remind us this often?

    This is why I try to avoid getting attached although I really liked what I saw from him in preseason... I hope this doesn't come back to haunt us.

    Here's what I hope the Colts were thinking.

    I think they were prepared to keep him on the roster despite the fact he didn't fit with their scheme because they thought he deserved it. I don't think they wanted to cut him even though it would have been understandable if they had. If another team wanted him they were going to have to invest something in him rather than just picking him up off of waivers. Maybe they were trying to make this other team who wanted him to think twice before cutting him. I don't know. I hope.

    He wasn't likely to get much playing time ahead of Werner and Walden

    I was curious to see how he would do, though, so in that respect it's disappointing

    Rayford wasn't waived, he was traded.

    We turned a no-investment, undrafted free agent, that didn't fit our scheme and wasn't going to play for us into a draft pick.

    Seems like a win to me.
