Instead of having set Leary inactive-not participating in off-season programs and walking in free agency next year, per Spotrac-the Cowboys should try to get something for him.
Cowboys guard Ronald Leary has requested a trade out of Dallas, NFL Media analyst Gil Brandt reported, via a source informed of the situation.
He now resides as a restricted free agent who signed his tender, a $2.55 million second-round designation, in hopes of a fast-tracking trade, per Archer.
A projected first-rounder who arrived in Dallas as an undrafted free agent due to a murder investigation clouding his draft stock past year, Collins doesn't look to be giving up Leary's old left guard spot anytime soon. Barring injury, that likely won't happen in Dallas. If Leary does not show up for the camp, he would be subject to a fine because he signed the tender. The Cowboys signed free agent Joe Looney as a backup guard/center this off-season.
In 2012, the Cowboys considered drafting Leary as high as the fifth round, but ultimately signed him when he went undrafted out of Memphis. They shied away from him, however, after doctors discovered at the National Football League combine he had a degenerative left knee disorder that teams feared could limit his career.
