Confisious say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

AJ is a potential top 3 player at his position. You don't trade a top 3 guy for picks, unless you can get a Hershel Walker type deal. The deal you proposed isn't enough for me. I would want even more than that to make a deal for picks.

Or as Forest Gump might say - Draft Picks are like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're going to get.

exactly, and how would we know they would come in and be impact players, i mean the whole thing is WAY to risky for me. And this team is only a few good players aways from beign a play-off team, sounds to me that would put us a few years back !

To add yet another reason to the why this is a bad idea pile--people always forget the NFL is not trade friendly. AJ got a $13.5 mil signing bonus. Trade him before next year and you take the remaining unprorated portion to the tune of $9 mil as dead cap money this year, i.e. over 10% of the cap taken up for a player no longer on the roster.

With this, we would have the chance to pick up a WR this year to fill AJ shoes (ok, I know, they are HUGE shoes, but even if we got a prime reciever, he would only be probably 60% a AJ).

But what does this offer us...

Two first rounds this year, two second rounds this year.

Round one :
WR and DE/DL/CB
Round two:
2 OL's

Next year, One first, and two second rounds, third, and two fourths.
Jerry Jones is on telephone for you. Loves your insight. Hopes you do replace Casserly. Seriously, I enjoy this swap of opinions.

No way AJ ever is given up by Houston until the dude is old and gray. AJ is our only pro bowl representative this year.

This scenerio of trading AJ for picks would and will not happen. He's one player on offense that they KNOW is something special. You don't trade people like him unless he is a problem and he's not.
