Cowboys add CB in trade with Patriots

OXNARD, Calif. -- Fresh off the news that Orlando Scandrick will be suspended for the first four games, the Dallas Cowboys acquired cornerback Justin Green from the New England Patriots, according to a source.

The Cowboys gave up defensive lineman Ben Bass, who has been out with a hamstring injury. Bass missed last year with a shoulder injury.

At his press briefing Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the team would look at their young corners before looking for help outside the organization.

Green spent most of last year on the Patriots practice squad after signing as an undrafted free agent.
