Last season, Claiborne was an emotional mess. While rehabbing from a hamstring injury, Claiborne's father passed away suddenly. And just days after losing his father, he became a father himself to a baby girl.
Dealing with the life of the NFL and the realities of the world can be difficult to do sometimes, especially for a player in his early 20s. The Cowboys can give Claiborne a pass for roughly the last month of the 2013 season due to his mental state. Claiborne wanted to play, but his body and personal issues prevented that for a time.
It's easy to focus on Claiborne and say he's come up short of expectations and you would be fair in saying that. Trading him could be an option for the Cowboys if they believe someone is willing to give them a third-round pick.http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/118694/is-trading-morris-claiborne-an-option
Damn that is a rough go of it for Claiborne. s***y few months with one happy ending to it though.
I'd do that in a heartbeat for real though. A 3rd rounder for a top 15 pick? Hell we did that to them for Reid. We'd fleece the Cowboys a 2nd time in 2 years, even if someone argues Morris was overdrafted lol.
