Dallas Cowboys guard Ronald Leary has requested a trade, reports Gil Brandt of

Leary did not attend the first day of Cowboys OTA off-season workouts, which began Tuesday.

The 27-year-old is expected to be a backup this season after losing his starting job to La’el Collins four games into the 2015 season. Leary was a starter for the 2013 and 2014 seasons, playing in 31 games. 

He signed a one-year, $2.553 million restricted free-agent tender in April with the hopes of being traded during the draft.

Leary was signed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Memphis in 2012.
