Give me a few names with the deadline looming Tuesday.
It's 4:20 in the morning, bro. I just got up for a minute. Now I'm off to bed like everyone else.
They cant do anything, the cap is such a mess right now, this is why they again are forced to bring guys off the street.
Jabaal Sheard. Defensive end,....Cleveland.
Thats not entirely true.
Stephen Jones has been quoted that its possible to fit "anyone" into the cap via trade, if the they had to. Now I believe them to be extremely limited due to the salary cap, and thus "anyone" is not a reality. But to say they cant do anything is false.
They have a little over 2 million in cap space last I saw reported. Think guys who are in their rookie contracts. I would say Running Backs or Defensive lineman. Safety?
when does the trade block officially end today?
Tuesday at 4pm
And we are 31 million over next years cap, look at how much cap space is being paid to guys that have not played a down this year. Most of our DL was not even here at training camp. Again JJ has left this team in a huge bind by paying people like Ratt all that money
What is another running back going to do? Serious question.
About the only thing that would help this team right now is a quality defensive lineman and nobody is going to give one of those up.
In a 'Madden football' universe, I think a complete running back like Adrian Peterson could do wonders for this offense, but even he couldn't fix this historically bad defense.
At this point, I'm not sure what could.
Regardless, no trade can cure this team's ills so I would rather be sellers if we could rather than buyers.
The offensive line still cannot produce enough push and I have no faith that any back we acquired would be utilized enough to justify the price.
We are just stuck with things the way they are right now until Garrett goes away and there is a philosophical shift with how the offense is designed.
I agree with the last portion of your post. I would rather trade players away than spin our wheels thinking new blood is going to change what are deep-seeded habits with this team.
2013 762,750 550,500 75,000 1,388,250
Most realistic option yet given the circumstances.
I like byrd, babin, and mjd but I doubt we make any moves
Can we trade Garrett?
Thought for sure a couple of teams would have made some trades by now.
