Trade with the Rams and take a chance that your trade will not bring the player you covet. I'd take a deal for Minnesota's 1st and second in 2014 and 2015 so they can leapfrog other QB hungry teams. At 8, we could still get a prime player, but closer to where they should be drafted rather than overpriced. But Minnesota would have to have made a different analysis than us.
Even better would be trades with St Louis or Cleveland if the price is right and we think our guy will fall to us later.
My dream would be to trade down one slot at a time while picking up draft choices until we reach the point our guy is next up.
If it takes the owner saying this in public for trade offers to be made than the front office here, and a bunch of other places, are in serious disarray.
NFL GMs are fully capable of doing their due diligence without McNair advertising the pick is available.
