    Check out the skins blurb, could this be an indication that they are thinking to grab Williams or Edwards at the top of the draft? Being that Chicago will almost certainly grab the first one that would suck bad.


    Trade talks around the NFL... There are a couple of trade situations which could involve 2005 picks developing around the NFL. Buffalo, for example, has given RB Travis Henry, who became expendable with the emergence of 2003 1st round RB Willis McGahee this season, permission to seek a trade for himself. Arizona reportedly is interested, while Miami and Oakland may also consider bringing in Henry to bolster their weak running games. Henry won't come cheap, though, as the Bills are reportedly looking for a second round pick in exchange. Meanwhile, Tampa Bay, which has 11 picks at this year's draft, is reportedly interested in acquiring veteran WR Rod Gardner, who reportedly has been put on the market by Washington. The Redskins, reportedly are looking for a mid-round pick in exchange for their former 2001 first rounder

    Henry for a 2nd is a steal IMO.

    If you have read anything about this scenario, Henry wants to be a starter and not a backup which would not be a good situation with Jones in Dallas. Pass...

    If Mike Williams ends up in the NFC East it better be here in Dallas. We will rule the day if we don't get him.

    Henry for a second is a joke....no one will pay that much for an oft-injured one dimensional back...he is as tough as they come, but the guy just can't stay on the field.

    Not the year to try and move Henry. So many top RB prospects and Henry's production wasn't all that great this year. The Bills didn't really take off until McGahee was inserted into the lineup. I don't see them getting a 2nd, but there are some silly teams out there.

    I doubt the Skins can try and move up very much. They don't have a 2nd or a 5th if I remember correctly. They would either have to give up significant player (Samuels?), or possibly their first rounder next year.

    I'd hate to see them draft Williams, but would love to see them draft Edwards.

    Also, if they don't sign Smoot, they are going to need a new cornerback and may be forced to use the first rounder on that position. I still can't understand why so many feel they need a WR, but too many out of Washington say so there must be smoke. They'd be better served to trade down and go after a OL, DL, or Heath Miller, but that's not the way Snyder works.

    I'm 100% on board with this. No way he would start ahead of Julius. I would be surprised if Buffalo get anything higher than a 3rd for Henry. A 2nd rounder? What are they thinking. Watch them settle for a 3rd and a 5th or 6th.

    Yes. I typed to fast and my mind spelled Rule. But you got the point.
