    That might be what they are asking but no way they will get that much.

    Thats crazy, the only way they will get a pair of 2's is if a team takes a dump and sends it to them in a box. :mariopalm:

    Wouldn't most teams have to send back contracts in return?

    I think the bucs might be a good fit for him.

    I know that's the rule in basketball but I don't believe it's like that in football.

    I would give them KJ and a 3rd.

    Contracts would have to be restructured again.

    But wouldn't it be nice to have 2 pro bowl caliber CB's. Instead of the crap we saw at CB last yr? I'm still not trusting the CB2 position.

    I would say if I were Kubiak and Smith I would do it. If no playoffs this year they are gone...future be damned ,time to win now.

    I imagine we probably have something on the roster they could use so I doubt the pair of 2's is carved in stone. It's an asking price and we all know that asking isn't necessarily getting.

    OR really close to what the Texans paid for their starting QB. At that price, no thanks. I'd go this year's 2nd and 4th. I doubt the Eagles want anything to do with KJ at this point, but then again who knows.

    There's no way we could fit him under the cap.

    I would offer a 2 and a pick that could be anywhere from a 4 to a 2 the year after. We add him, our CB's become a real strength

    They won't give him up for 2 2nds, however if I were the Texans I would do that deal and figure out the contract after.

    If we were to trade for him, we would need to send a CB in return with the 2nd. We have too many as it is, and it would help open some cap space. KJ would be great because he's getting about ~4 million a year.

    How about a 2nd rounder in 2012 and the other 2nd rounder when he helps us win the Super Bowl or gets 12 INTs in one season?
    ....whichever comes first.
    :D

    He isn't making that much. He signed a 5 year $10.35 mil deal with the possibility of another $3 mil in incentives.

    Matt and Adam were discussing this today on 790. I agree with Matt in that we have dog crap for CB#2, and we need a serious upgrade there.

    Samuel is 29 and one of the top turnover machines at CB in the league. With Joseph and Samuel, you have to feel really good about your corner situation.

    Seems to me if you want to make a push into the playoffs, you don't want Allen or Kjax as your #2. They both are horrible. That's the most glaring weakness on the team. I say if you can - you fill it.

    Two number 2 picks for someone that will probably play pretty good for another four or five years? Nope. I'm still not convinced that CB is the only problem left on the defense, and that's just to much to give up IMO.
