Default Keyshawn trade almost done

Keyshawn Johnson is still heading to the Cowboys, but it will likely be for a draft choice, not Joey Galloway.


Once Johnson agreed to a five-year, $20 million deal with the Cowboys, Dallas was ready to send Galloway to the Bucs in return.


However, for Galloway to fit into the trade, he would have had to take a salary cut. Galloway is scheduled to make $6.31 million this season, and the Bucs only offered him a $1 million base and a $250,000 bonus. Galloway has balked at taking the paycut.


Instead, Johnson likely will go to Dallas for a second-day 2005 draft choice, perhaps a fifth or sixth-rounder, ESPN.com's John Clayton and ESPN's Ed Werder reports.


If the trade can't be worked out, the Cowboys also could wait until the Bucs release Johnson before April 1, when Johnson is due a $1 million bonus.


"Keyshawn is looking forward to getting back together with his former coach, Bill Parcells," Johnson's agent, Jerome Stanley, told Clayton..


On Tuesday the Bucs positioned themselves to be an active participant in free agency by releasing five players, including tight end Ken Dilger and linebacker Dwayne Rudd, to trim the team's payroll by nearly $3 million.


Receiver Karl Williams, tight end Roland Williams and safety Than Merrill also were cut. The Bucs created additional room under the NFL's $80.6 million salary cap by restructuring the contract of offensive lineman Kerry Jenkins, who had been due a $1 million roster bonus on Monday.


From the beginning, the receiver-for-receiver trade hinged on the Cowboys' restructuring the final four years of Johnson's eight-year, $56 million contract and Galloway and the Bucs re-doing the remaining three years of his seven-year, $42 million deal.


Buccaneers general manager Bruce Allen had said that he would be receptive to a draft pick in return for Johnson if the Bucs couldn't reach an agreement with Galloway.


Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Tuesday that trading a pick was not part of their discussions. "We need Galloway to get it done," Jones said.


While the speedy Galloway was probably going to be waived because his production hasn't matched his salary, he would have given the Buccaneers the deep threat they have lacked. He did average 19.8 yards for his 34 receptions in Dallas last season.


And Johnson, a former Pro Bowler who was deactivated for the final six games of the season because of his stormy relationship with Jon Gruden, gets a chance to repair his career and image with a coach and staff with which he is familiar.


Johnson had his best years in the NFL with the Jets in 1998 and 1999 when Parcells was his head coach. Last season, Johnson had just 45 catches for 600 yards and three touchdowns.


Coming off a 7-9 finish that left them out of the playoffs for the first time since 1998, the Bucs are trying to clear as much money as possible to fill needs this offseason for offensive linemen, receivers, tight ends and possibly a running back.


Fifteen Buccaneers, including seven-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Warren Sapp, became free agents Wednesday.

Well I didn't know the Cowboys wanted him this bad. But I just hope that Galloways contract doesn't hurt our cap to much once they realese him.

Should be interesting to see how this works out... I think Johnson will have another good season, while he's once again under Parcells... and we already know they have a good defense. There is around 4 decent backs left in the free-agent market... if Dallas can pick up one of them... I see them having a real good year next year... I guess the final question though is, what will Dallas end up giving to get Keyshawn? Now that they already have the contract taken care of...

Tampa isn't going to want much for him. Maybe a 6th round pick. And even if they can't agree on a pick (which I highly doubt will happen) there going to release him anyways. Either way Keyshawn will be playing with a star on his helmet this season.

I just wish Galloway wouldn't be such a bitch about this. Sorry Joey, but your not as good as you think anymore.

If Dallas was smart, they would grab Jeff Garcia off the market before someone else does. It's no secret Parcells wants a new QB, and I would take someone proven like Garcia over a guy like Drew Hensen.

As much as I would like to happen, I really don't think that will go down. I don't know what his asking price is, but I bet its going to be to big for Jerry & Co.

Jones still thinks Carter is his QB. I guess i'm just going to wait until next offseason for them to sign a QB once they find out that once again, Carter is made to be a NFL QB.

I think Keyshawn is extremely over rated. His on the field play is average, nothing spectacular not to mention how much of a baby he is. I personally think the guy is a loser, it really pissed my off when he got cut by Tampa and was rewarded with a spot in one of the pre game shows, that was ridiculous.

I donít see this as much as an improvement but I guess Parcells will straighten him up.

Galloway is no better though, so itís hard to say who is getting the better end of this.
