Default Texans tried to trade for Lynch

Quote:
....

It doesn't look like a trade is going to materialize for Lynch.

Per the report, the Seattle Seahawks and the Houston Texans were unwilling to raise their offers higher than a third-round pick.

After requesting a trade in April, Lynch thought he might be moved during the NFL draft. According to a league source, the Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans made overtures but didn’t offer more than a third-round pick, and Buffalo wouldn’t bite.

I'm freaking glad they didn't offer more than a third. The dude isn't worth more than that.

I thought he was only worth about a 4th or 5th to me.

Love it they tried to pick up an everydown RB on the cheap. Bills asked too much and the value wasn't worth the trouble.

Looks like the Texans might be willing to put the goody 2 shoes routine aside and start trying to improve their team any way they can. Just like the rest of the NFL.

Default Re: Texans tried to trade for Lynch

It's kinda surprising to me that they did attempt to get Lynch, if the report is true ? But I'm still disappointed they didn't make a run at Thomas Jones ?
OK I know they had a bad experience with another vet back, Ahman Green, but they could have got this guy without expending a single Draft pick and he seems a perfect compliment to younger backs Arian Foster and Slaton ? And 1400 yards rushing just last year, he's most likely got some tread left on the tires ?

What's to risk, a few million bucks ? That's chump change to McNair. On the
other hand, using our 2nd round pick for a back in the Draft as they did this year is a major investment of a very valuable asset/resource. Just think of the possibilities that were out there for that second rounder pick ? But I am thankful they didn't use their first round pick on a back.

nor did you hear any other teams that TJ visited, at least I didn't. I heard and read he went to KC and left with a contract...

He may not have given any other teams the chance to visit with him, kinda like Fanaca did.

Except the odds of a 30 something back being successful are not in their favors.

My feeling exactly. I really didn't want Lynch but it is good to hear that (1) we were seriously interested in addressing the RB position in the offseason prior to the draft and (2) that it wasn't just for a good 2 shoes... the FO was willing to give a little on that to get someone they thought would really help the team.

At the end of the day, I'd rather spend a 2nd round pick on a guy like Ben Tate who is so excited to be awarded this opportunity than trade a 3rd round pick for Marshawn Lynch.

Default Re: Texans tried to trade for Lynch

Sounds like the Bills are trying to create a ficticious bidding war for him. By saying they would not offer more than a third round pick doesn't mean they actually offered a pick that high. The Texans might have offered Antwan Mulden for him, who was a 3rd round pick.
