Default Trade Jacoby.......... Yes Or No

So, what do you all think about that? Just hear me out before going crazy. We all know the talent he has and we also know he drops some passes and still has not become what we all would like him to. With Jacoby's contract being up in 2011 and Dickerson waiting in the wings I am not sure about Jones resigning with the Texans. That being said, I like Jacoby and what he brings to the team. The NFL trading deadline is looming and the Randy Moss trade got me thinking about Jones. Should the Texans try and get something in return for Jones or just wait and take their chances on him not resigning and just walking. What do you think the chances are Jones does finish the season strong and resings with the Texans? I hope he does but you never know. I just hate to see him walk away for nothing as would be the case with anyone who has true talent. Well, what are your thoughts? Remember I am just thinking that's all. Any thoughts or comments on this? Thanks.

I somewht felt that Moss was had cheap. That doesn't spell too well for JJ's value. Especially when we're most likely specifically looking for need as opposed to value in return.

That value might turn into a need though through a few draft picks. Maybe so.

Default Re: Trade Jacoby.......... Yes Or No

What exactly would you expect to get in return for Jacoby? Surely you must realize how stingy NFL managements are with draft picks. Randy Moss, one of the best receivers in the league, just got exchanged for a third-round pick. He was originally acquired by the Pats for a fourth-round pick.

As much as I like Jacoby Jones, I would have to think that he has virtually zero trade value.

Zero to a team like the Vikings. Moss is much older than Jones too.

JJ has to show something consistently before it is even a possibility.

Although JJ is still inconsistent, he has become much more consistent, and is much more a factor on the "big play." Let's not crown Dickerson as the next JJ-like player. He is raw, unproven as far as route running and soft hands, and, despite his timed 4.40, he has never demonstrated that runaway speed on the field of play in college.....or in the preseason.

Old or not, Randy Moss is a hall of famer 2 seasons removed from a 23-touchdown season. Jacoby Jones is a player that most folks outside of Houston have never heard of. When guys like Bernard Pollard and Ladanian Tomlinson are routinely CUT, presumably because no value can be had from trading them, what makes you think we could possibly get something for Jacoby?

Managers really do seem to be ridiculously stingy with draft picks. I'll bet that most wouldn't even give up a 1st rounder for AJ.

i am not crowning him anything yet but if he soon starts to produce and play well then I would feel better about allowing Jones to explore his options. Who knows? I would not mind seeing Jones continue to progress and stay.
