Wonder if they may bring in Hicks to be there 3rd string RB. It's obvious we won't budge (at this point) from our 2nd round pick for Sage; Vikes don't want to give up their 2nd rd pick.

Mewelde Moore and their 3rd round pick for Sage???

I'm one of the thinking that when a team has 3 solid RB's (1 of them elite) and are looking at possible trades- they will do anything to bring in FA's to help make some sort of trade possible.

I would do Moore and a 3rd for Sage. Mewelde plays well when given a chance.

But it would have to be a sign and trade because Mewelde is a UFA

Oh well shoot, I didn't know that. That'd basically be trading sage for the 3rd and picking up moore as a fa which we could. never mind then!

If he's a UFA then why not sign him straight out?

I don't think he ever made it to Houston.
