Description: Pro Football Talk.com reports the Rams and Cowboys are discussing a trade involving Barron and LB Bobby Carpenter.
Insight: Barron could fill the Cowboys' need at left tackle with the release of Flozell Adams, while Carpenter could help the depth in the Rams' linebacking corp. Both guys could probably use a change of scenery. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that the Rams will only ask for second round draft pick compensation for Barron, who can become a restricted free agent.
Insight: This could be a sign the Rams want to trade Barron, a former first round pick that has been largely a disappointment. Jason Smith, the #2 overall pick in 2009, is likely to take over Barron's spot at left tackle anyway. (SportsBuff.com)
