In response to recent reports that the Dallas Cowboys could be interested in trading for Falcons receiver Joe Horn, Atlanta G.M. Tom Dimitroff says that no team has inquired about the veteran wideout who wants out of town.

Including the Cowboys.

I’ve made no contact with Dallas or they with me,” Dimitroff told Steve Wyche of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution via text message.

Um, Tom?  Have you ever heard of leverage?  They say honesty is the best policy, but not when you’re the General Manager of an NFL team that is hoping to fleece another franchise for a guy no one wants. 

Sure, you’re not putting your mortal soul at risk.  But what fun is that?  (Attention, Supreme Being:  I am being sarcastic.)
