foreman's trade value
 
with the news of sharper being given permission to seek a trade it seems everyone has forgotten about foreman. what can we get for him? how does his contract effect the chance to trade him?

i'd say hes worth a 4th rd pick.

Vinny 03-04-2005 04:31 PM

He's not worth more than a 6th - 7th. A team taking on his contract (he is overpaid) would likely argue that a 7th is too high. ;)

What about his value though to a team like Dallas who needs experienced 3-4 starters in some spots? I am not saying they would give us something crazy for Foreman or Sharper, but wouldn't they be at least a little more valuable to a team like that?

powda 03-04-2005 04:38 PM

see that was my thinking on the matter....more teams switching to a 3-4 defense increases foreman's value. perhaps not as high as a 4 but then i look to the gerald warren trade....hes done squat. at least foreman has been relativley productive here. warren was just traded for a 4.

I could see us getting a 5th for him. Anything more than that is awesome.. anything less than that is "eh, at least we got something"

Warren was a top first round pick pick though, and is still pretty young. Foreman was a 5th round pick who hasn't played really well the last couple of years. You could be right though. I just don't think he has too much value.

powda 03-04-2005 04:50 PM

i think i'll agree with grid on this one...a 5 should be reasonable. at any rate i think foreman's done with this team. if we cant move him we'll cut him.

Not all teams will ask him to cover TEs, but still, he isn't exactly a hot commodity out there. A 7th would be preferable to outright releasing him though.

I'd prefer we restructure and have a top flight backup.

TheOgre 03-04-2005 05:04 PM

We would get no more than a low 6th rounder for him. He is overpaid and is marginal, at best.

Corrosion 03-04-2005 05:39 PM

foreman + a case of cold beer and a box of cuban cigars for the last pick in the draft sounds fair to me . sure he makes a lot of tackles but the majority of those tackles are 5+ yards oast the line of scrimage

Wolf 03-04-2005 06:37 PM

geeze and we got a 3rd for drew henson :woot

texan279 03-04-2005 06:44 PM

And we got a 7th for Steve Cheek or whoever that punter was we sent to the Chiefs...

powda 03-04-2005 07:00 PM

gerald warren was a 4. hes done nothing.

greg randall was a 5. hes done nothing.

drew henson was a 3. he'd done nothing in what 4 years? and only played 8 college games.

i'd say a 5 is reasonable especially for a team looking to switch over to a 3-4 defense this year. my question is what is his salary and what impact will that have?

someone might give a 6th but most teams would rather draft someone than take our castoffs. a starter on one of the worst teams in the league.
