    I don't think you understand... that would get us virtually nothing at this point. No one wants CJ's contract and no one wants Britt, period.

    That's what I'm talking about! I'd do that in a heartbeat. Always been a Gerhart fan, that boy can pound the rock and has some wheels too.

    I love the thinking behind this. The way I see it we shouldn't be afraid to make bold moves because we need to go all in. I'm not saying we should trade away all of our valuable picks and screw ourselves in the future. I just think that making a couple moves to get us some players that can make an impact and help us go on a run to get us in the playoffs and hopefully beyond.

    Jared Allen would be great. So would an offensive threat like Gordon or Fitzgerald. I know that it's far-fetched to think our FO would actually pull the trigger on any deals BUT I think that sometimes it's worth the risk.

    Just looking back on a few trades that happened that ended up being steals. Anquan Boldin to the Ravens was a steal and so was the trade that shipped him to SF. Asante Samuel to the Falcons was a steal. Sometimes you just have to take a chance. We've given up picks for guys like Thompson and Quinn Johnson so I don't think we should shy away from making deals for proven vets if they are in play.

    We're all dreaming though... we all know we won't be trading.

    This is honestly the first year I even remember there being so much trade buzz, and I don't remember a trade that would equal the Richardson trade scale since Portis for Bailey... and that's the last big time player for player trade I can remember.

    I would much rather move some our players and get some picks. Stock up on mid rounders and Ruston could find us some gems. Britt, Washington, or CJ are all expendable. CJ only if we get a great deal.

    The way Nate has been playing with Locker as QB, he is far from expendable for the next couple of years. I thought we went over this in a long trade Nate thread. Britt and CJ are more than expendable, though.

    I still believe Britt and a 4th round pick could get us something decent though. I know Britt has been struggling and has hurt his value, but his size and athleticism is hard to pass up! Especially for a team that is in great need for a WR. I think teams are going to sit back and see how desperate we get with getting rid of him. I know Munchak says " Kenny is still a big part of this team", but in football talk it really means: Munchak-"We're not thinking of getting rid of Kenny ( ANY TAKERS??) "I'm so proud of Kenny" ( KENNY TO ANYONE PLEASE TAKE HIM!). We will see if anyone bites on anything, but my guess is we are stuck with the guy until the end of the season.

    I would love to trade Britt but sad fact here is none of the 31 other teams want Britt. They will not waste a draft pick on picking someone up for half a season who barely produces a yard and gets them penalties
