Re: Trade Advice
Well, you should look at it as Slaton for Jones, because Mike Bell will be less relevant when Pierre Thomas comes back. The Saints are SAYING that Thomas and Bell will compete for carries, but that's just coachspeak. Thomas is better when he's healthy.
Personally - I wouldn't take that deal because even if Slaton struggles, at least you know he's the unquestioned starter. Leon Washington looked at least as much (if not more) involved in the Jets offense than Thomas Jones.
