I would be willing to trade the Texans 09 1st rd. pick to the Rams for Steven Jackson. http://www.stlouisrams.com/article/68177/

Michael Bush is signed to a cap friendly contract through 2010. There's no reason for the Raiders to get rid of him. Al Davis would probably ask for a 1st rounder in return.

What kind of payday is Jackson holding out for? I would only be worried about the letdown after a big contract... He is only getting 1.7 million now and considered one of the top 5 running backs. We, however, have a 4 year/ 23 million dollar cheerleader in Green. It would be great if we could just do a straight trade but NO ONE would take on Green's contract

Fargas is basically a one-year wonder that was either injury prone or crap his entire career. I think he and Slaton are the same player.

I'd say see what the Titans wanted for LenDale, but I figure I would get flamed by the USC/Titans haters

Maybe DeAngelo Williams is on the block since the Panthers drafted Stewart?

You have much more faith in Ricks will power for the exotic tobacco than I do.

The only difference in Rickey and Barret Robins is that Rickey hasn't gone off the reservation yet to Tia Juana.

Won't help us this year. The Rams would most likely let him ride the bench.. or simply not report for the entire season. There is no reason to release him.

The day I retire, I'll be smoking the biggest fattest reefer I can find.

For me that's not necessarily true, but I've heard it said many times, by many people, and I'm sure you have as well. Ricky seems to have is priorities straight now, for whatever reason, doesn't really matter.

He's a heck of an athlete, a hell of a running back, and we could get him pretty cheap.

Having two runningbacks that has the talent and abilities to start is the trend now and days in the NFL, so I doubt we can just get DWill, Ricky, or Michael Bush that easily.

Funny how some teams have two RBs that can start while we have none. Atleast we have a pretty sweet 3rd down back.
