Lions Trade Jon Kitna to Cowboys?

National Football Post is reporting that the Lions have traded quarterback Jon Kitna to the Dallas Cowboys for what is currently being called "late picks."  I would be shocked if they got anything more than a sixth- or seventh-round pick for Kitna, but maybe Martin Mayhew just has a way of pulling off amazing deals with the Cowboys.  I'm sure we'll find out soon enough, but one way or another, Kitna will be off the roster by March 3, the date when his roster bonus is due.  It doesn't make sense for a team to trade for him when he is going to be released in a few days, but again, this is the Cowboys we're talking about.

More as it comes out.
