In an interesting, though perhaps half-hearted request, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett wants to make a trade before the Pro Bowl.
Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, who will be coaching Team Irvin in the 2015 Pro Bowl this Sunday, has asked if he can make a trade for the Long Snapper on Team Carter.

In an interview on Friday’s Pro Bowl bowl practice, Garrett spoke about how much fun it was to work with the six Pro Bowlers from his team this past season – Tony Romo, Jason Witten, DeMarco Murray, Travis Frederick, Zach Martin and Tyron Smith – but hinted there was one more he wanted to add.
“I think it’s fun for us,” Garrett said. “It’s really an honor and a privilege as a coaching staff to be out here. It’s well earned by our players and everyone who is out here. These guys literally are the best of the best on the planet at what they do.”
After saying that, Garrett jokingly mentioned his disappointment in not being able to add the seventh Cowboy in the Pro Bowl – Long Snapper L. P. LaDoucer – who had been taken by Team Carter in the Pro Bowl draft, to his squad, and suggested that he might even request a trade for him.
“L.P. is the long snapper for the other team, so we are thinking about making an eleventh-hour trade here, I don’t know if that going to happen,” Garrett said. “We like (Eagles’ long snapper) Jon Dorenbos, he’s a magician and he does a great job for us. Unfortunately I don’t know if were going to be able to pull (a trade) off, but it’s fun to have all our guys,” Garrett added.
Unfortunately for Garrett, there is no rule that really allows trades among Pro Bowl rosters, so it’s a bit of a moot issue.
LaDoucer took it in stride and said he wouldn’t hold it against Team Carter for not letting him work with Garrett.
“That wouldn’t be fair play,” he said.
