Cause his salary counts against this years cap and there are no FA out there to sign so there is no need to free cap space.

Mathis is a guy coming out of Division II in college. It's a big jump from D-II to the NFL. Camp is different then the reg. season.

Armstrong is a possesion guy, works in the slot with Gaff.

If you go into the season with only Armstrong, Gaff and Mathis will have so many problems getting AJ open. Pass Mathis there is no speed so no way to strech the field and Mathis isnt a sure thing.

And you have to have a couple of speed guys or AJ will get no room...
At the time Bradford resigned with the Texans it was reported he had another offer (I believe it was even for more money) and he decided to come back to Houston. Not saying there was a huge market for him, but he wouldn't have been unemployed like Mack, Stevens, etc.

Yeah, wasnt it with the Lions??? But like you said there wasnt that big of a market for him.

Bad word choice on my part. I shouldnt have said 'anyone.'

It was kind of vague. There were reports of interest by the Lions and then a report of an offer by another team--most folks assumed it was the Lions, but who knows. In any event, small market, but a market of two is a big step up from a market of zero.

I guess everybody who's not an Eagles fan has forgotten about Greg Lewis, the guy who played well last year in the playoffs, and caught a touchdown in the Super Bowl. Andy Reid was asked about having him as the second receiver and he said "We have a lot of confidence in Greg Lewis that was developed over last season... We've all seen what he can do and we know he'll step up and do a heck of a job." When he was asked if the team needs help at receiver, he said "We're fine."

ok i specified the eagles too much earlier, but truth is, alot of teams will develop new and pressing needs between now and the reg season. the eagles just happen to have lost a step at reciever now.

Ok heres the deal. The TO situation seems to be getting out of hand, and recievers from varous clubs going though injuries. Forget about Bradford, weve established that his trade value is nada. Does anyone think that with our abundance of young talent at WR, that by the end preseason another club might find value in any of our WR's? If so who would be the best candidate for us to trade? could we get a 3rd round pick for any of them. What if we gave up either banks or ragone, and one of our recievers, might we have a chance at getting a 2nd or 1st rounder for a backup QB and a #3 or potential #2 WR. I think in the next draft we have our 1st round selection but not a second(please let me know if im mistaken)but with 2 1st rounders or a 1st and 2nd next year we can scoop up a franchise LT and a solid #2 WR if none of the guys on the sqaud flourish this season. i just keep hearing that this season we will have to cut a couple of guys who are pretty good, and i think if one puts on a good show in preseason we should try and make the most out of it.

From what I can tell we have a 1st, 2nd, and two 3rd round picks next year in the first day of the draft.

Gaffney might be worth a third rounder. Ragone might be worth a third. I doubt you could get a fifth rounder for anyone else. They are more valuable to the Texans for what they will do on the field than what they could be traded for.
