first of all none of those players will get traded for what you said. you wouldn't get a first day pick for any of those players, maybe for Wong, but thats pushing it.

Player trades are very rare in the NFL. You can't expect a trade, the only trade we have made outside of our first season was the drew Henson trade.

I think getting Walter Jones would be easier than Orlando Pace. but either would make me happy. I'd rather have Bubba Franks than Becht, better blocker. Used to playing at a high level and catching rocket farve passes, not the weak balls Pennington puts up

I agree trades are rare but I suggested those trade to clear cap space, I acutually see us cutting Foreman and maybe Wong but I would rather see a trade so that we get something in return. Parcells likes the bigger LB and Wong would fit his type, especilly the way he played this season. The Giants have Kevin Lewis and Nick Greisen in the middle and probably want to upgrade and Foreman would be an upgrade. The Lions need help on the line as well as because Raiola will probably be leaving and could use McKinney.

Entering next year we will have the goal of trying to make the playoffs and we will have depth and can afford to trade players, before we didn't have enough warm bodies to put on the field let alone trade good player. But now those player are getting too expensive for their production and we can cut or trade them and go after other better players.

With the cleared cap space we could go after Pace who is younger and bigger than Jones and isn't known as being lazy. St. Louis is having a lot of trouble with their defense and OL and probably can't afford to franchise Pace again because they need to spread that money around in other areas.

I would want Bubba Franks also but I don't see GB letting him go especially if they want Favre back. Becht is still a good young player and a good blocker and receiver.

Nice effort but those trades are not going to happen. We have to take some cap hits I'm sure and really, nobody is going to give a first day pick for either Foreman or McKinney. Wong (McKinney also) makes too much money for his worth too, so that isn't going to happen either.

Forget about Pace. That isn't going to happen either. We will not pursue a another massive salary for the O-line.

We had a chance to take Fuamatu-Ma'afala off of waivers a year ago and passed. I don't see us signing him now.

Nobody knows what is going to happen so its all just opinion, but you may want to add some realism and forget about the trades.

I really am wondering if Bell is going to be back next year with the Steelers. If you look at it, their defense is doing great without his efforts this year. The Rooneys were notorious for letting go talent like Bells. Bell in Foremans spot is a natural, but he won't come cheap.

Good job on the draft, all those picks are solid. I doubt that if the Texans did sign all those FAs, we would be under the salary cap.

Forget all the other stuff. Making this deal would automatically earn my vote for Executive of the Year.

If you're going to dream, dream big.

why in the sam hill would we resign banks?
the only reason that I can come up with would be that we trade BJ to the Packers, who thought that they were going to get him at 251 last year
if BJ is on the roster next year, then my guess is tony won't be
