    If Jerry could trade for Gordon and trade Miles away you better believe he will. All signs point to Miles being a cap cut at the end of the season and if Dallas could cover themselves now by sending say a 3rd and a 5th for Gordon and getting a 4th or a 5th back for Miles. Don't forget Gordon is 22 years old, can stretch the field as good as any WR in the NFL and is under contract through 2015.

    The cap hit for cutting Miles is going to be big IIRC. It was a bad contract based on one years production to begin with and the restructuring has made it worse.

    If Austin would rewrite his contract where all the money fall on the Lions and we were free of Austin contract.
    I'd take that deal.Of course I don't know the implications of this suggestion, just

    I agree. There is absolutely no shot we see anything involving a move of Austin in a trade.

    lol. Yeah they'd be helping themselves out a lot with that move for sure. Their offense is already dang good and that would just make it scary good, IMO.

    he can't do that. you can't redo a contract a couple months after you did it. austin was just paid a 5.89 million bonus. he is not tradable.

    Me too. I know a lot of people love the guy on here, and thats fine. I just can't stand a WR that will make a very difficult catch and then he will drop the next two easy ones. Drives me nuts. The two guys (prominent guys) I have had enough of in a Cowboys uniform is Austin and Ratliff.

    What's up with this Josh Gordon love fest? Is it based on what he did at Baylor? It can't be based on what he's done in the NFL because he hasn't done much. Sure he hasn't had a qb and has shown flashes but guys in here talk like he's the second coming of Jerry Rice.

    Not true. Look at the Tebow trade.

    He had a pretty good rookie season, then the monster first game after the suspension. That's all it takes on this board. Out with the old in with new.

    I think he will be a decent player but no guarantees and he has off field issues.

    These are the two that I want gone as well. Both are big salary cap hits that provide limited production did to injuries. Both were bad contract signings.

    Yea see that's my perception of him. I was just wondering was it something in the preseason or what....he hasn't done anything to warrant trading for him. Terrance Williams is a very comparable rookie prospect. Gordon may end up better but I guess its what have you done for me lately....
