Default Mike LB Trade Possibilities

So from the sounds of kubiak's presser, it seems trading for a MLB could be a possibility in the next day. so who are some guys we should target?

obviously the candidates should be a backup or an ageing player on a team with few wins.. anybody got any names

I think Diles will move over to MLB and they'll look for somebody to play his WLB spot if they make a trade at all.

But are comfortable with Derrick Ward as the starter if Arian Foster goes down?

Yes, I've seen nothing but positive runs from him when we need them.

Absolutely, Derrick Ward has been the bargain aquisition of the year (Arian was acquired last year). There was nothing wrong with him at all, just not a good fit in Tampa. Fits great here.

Our defense is a sinking ship right now with holes everywhere from lack of experience and injuries. One of the few bright spots on D just went down and the next 3 guys on the depth chart Adibi, Bentley, and Sharpton are all banged up. Right now running back is a luxury position that could help us plug up some of those holes on D

Trade Slaton for Hawk, sign Jeremiah Johnson for depth. Fine with me.

That's a good point. I do have faith in Derrick Ward. He's done nothing but good for us. Ward might not be the most eloquent running back, but he sure gets it done.

And I'd be ecstatic to have AJ Hawk in a Texan's uniform. Some Packer fans claim he's regressed for the 2009 season, but I honestly believe that's due to Caper's switch to the 3-4 defense. He's only 26 and should be in his prime.

I need to stop getting my hopes up.

Yea its weird, after his stellar rookie year you didnt hear much about him, I dont know if he fell out of the coaches favor or guys were just outplaying him on the depth chart. I remember game 1 of this season he didnt play a single defensive snap but the coaches said he just wasn't part of the packages they were using, I guess going more DB heavy.

If I had a time machine I wouldn't be using it to get better draft picks, I would have used it to assassinate Bud Adams a long time ago.

You do realize you could do both don't you? (Well, unless it was one of those 1 use only - disposable time machines).

Miami released Bobby Carpenter today. Funny quote from rotoworld got me thinking that he's a perfect fit:

"Carpenter was a huge special teams liability and plays with no physicality on defense."
