    I am. He will always have these little nagging hammy injuries. That happens when there is no contact. It's just who he is. He gave us a few good seasons but he can't be counted on for any length of time. I believe someone put the over under on how long it took him to get injured at 4 games. They were 1.5 games off. Got hurt halfway into the 3rd game.

    Why would you continue to hold out hope for him after this has been going on for awhile now?

    I can't believe the crap people say about Austin.

    I can't imagine him going anywhere this year or anytime soon and I hope that's the case.

    Jerry sells low and buys high, so I don't see this happening.

    Josh Gordon makes much more sense. Unfortunately. Lions are adding to a strength, imagine that.

    Why not Austin, Rat and a future pick based on production in 2013 (sacks, pro bowl, suspensions, etc.)?

    If we got a 3rd for Austin I'd do back flips, and that would be a spectacle.

    It just makes no sense at all.

    Thinking we will land Suh is just laughable BTW.


    Also... I hate to lose Austin because it takes receivers FOREVER to get comfortable in this offense.

    you think the Lions would consider or is he too young, they actually have a third DT that's good some maybe they would consider it

    I have no idea if they'd consider it, but I'd trade Austin and a pick for Fairley.

    I hear ya. His time is running out, we just can't have it, and you may well be right. But we have given up early on other wrs before and they went on to have pro bowl careers......it's a tough tough call........im willing to see what he does the rest of the season.......he has talent. He is a good football player. Just cant stay healthy.......

    Given his track record I'm surprised anyone would say that.

    me too one of those 7th we added.... then i'd even consider calling the browns and offer them a third for Gordon, i'm not saying i'd do it 100% but i'd definitely be in the room with my pro scouting department and seeing if this would make sense... Twill is still young and raw and it will probably take him a good 2 years to be a good #2 and I feel this team can win now so that is an important position.... just food for though

    Okay so lets say we trade Miles. What if Dez's back keeps flaring up... now we have a Rookie on the outside, with Harris who isn't nearly as effective on the outside as he is in the slot with Beasley in the slot... not sure if im liking that at all...
