Based on the pre-season so far, should we trade Foxworth?

So far, although our secondary has looked shaky sometimes, we are very deep. As we know from last year, 5th corners do not make it on the field very much, ala Cary Williams 2010. We also spent a draft pick on Chykie Brown, and have in camp Talmadge Jackson, who was 1st team all Pac-Ten and a few other undrafted Free Agents. So with our 5th Cb being a #2 or #3 CB on many other teams that are weak in the secondary, maybe we should look into moving a guy like Foxworth. Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb are cheap, young players who aren't going anywhere. We just resigned Chris Carr to a deal roughly half of Foxworth's current deal, and Cary Williams has looked very solid and is also young and cheap. This all leads me to think that Domonique Foxworth could be had via trade. We have several holes to fill, primarily starting RT, backup QB, and backup C/G, and could use the cap space. Trading him would clear even more space than cutting him, and we wouldn't have to lose him for nothing.

Who would seem to be a good trade partner for us on this front?

2 ideas:

Oakland- Cooper Carlisle, Trent Edwards

NYG- Stacy Andrews, Sage Rosenfels

Obviously, both of these deals would likely require us to get a pick back also. However, they would both provide us with a backup QB and a Offfensive lineman with starting experience. Both Carlisle (assuming he is beaten out by Stefan Wisneiwski) and Andrews are currently bench players on their current teams, but have started within the past 2 years. Both can play G and T. The need for an offensive lineman may be moot with the signing of Mark LeVoir, but if not here are some options. Both these teams are weak in the secondary, Oakland after losing Nnamdi Asomugha and the Giants losing Prince Amukamara to injury. If you have any other teams with weaknesses in their secondary who could help us with our depth problem on the o-line, write it in the comments.
