i like that cass and dom aren't complacent, they seem to be shaking things up a bit. so might this mean:
Bradford wants a better role in the offense, so he is flying to Detroit where Roy Williams and Charles Rogers are clearly 1 and 2.
i'm guessing he will fly to oakland next. he should see alot of balls with moss and porter around.
He is just looking for work.
If Bradford was smart, he'd be trying to talk to Philly... He is faster and has better hands than Freddie Mitchell has or even thinks he has.
LoL, Freddie Mitchell...LoL
Freddie Mitchell = Dumb*****
It takes two to tango. Yeah, Eagles, Bears,Boys,and Fins are some teams Bradford should look to sign;that is, if any are interested.
and the Ravens.
About Foreman.. that kinda bothers me. We have so far made it a point to treat our players right (or at least it seemed that way to me). I like the move to trade foreman and sharper.. but I would have expected both of the to get prior notice before we did so. Maybe things just happened too fast to do that.. but it still kinda sucks. I have nothing against either Sharper or Foreman. Both of them have played important roles on this team and have played no small part in getting it to where it is now.. I wouldnt want them to leave feeling disrespected or betrayed.
Players feeling betrayed and/or disrespected is unavoidable during contract negotiations and when decisions like this have to be made. It's just the nature of a pro athlete. They were both notified and I'm sure have much more of the story than we do. Athletes at that level just have remarkable self-images and beliefs in their abilities, so many times they can't grasp that someone else would be better. Don't knock Casserly and company for trying to do their job.
He'd be #2 there after game 3 when Rogers' arm falls off.
If Foreman is blindsided by an attempt to replace him he has had his head in the sand, or up some body cavity.
I bet Steve McKinney will also feel betrayed and blindsided when he gets replaced, just like Matt Stevens was surprised.
Maybe he's seen Chalie Rogers' stats for the last two years (22 catches for 243 yards) and thinks he's better than a guy that never plays. Rogers has had that colar bone repaired with some stainless steel parts... but he has two colar bones. Detroit may have seen Rogers X-Rays and his stats and thinks having another guy around might be a good thing.
I wouldn't think a FA TE would be silly to talk to Houston even though we have Joppru.
Along with Sharper, Foreman has been given permission to seek trade as well, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Yes but he hasn't been as important to this defense as Sharper has. Thats why nobody is talking about it. Also he don't have the big of trade value.
I sure hope he was worth sitting on the bench for 2 years and filling up a spot on our roster.
Thats why the Texans don't want him anymore. He can't catch!!!
In the case of Bradford Vs. Mitchell, better is a very relative term.
I don't think giving them permission to seek a trade is disrespecting them. They didn't blindside them with a trade. They said, look we've brought in more players and if you think there is a better situation out there for you then we give you permission to go pursue it. I think that is giving them at least some respect. Now I know that quite often giving a player permission to seek a trade means "find a trade or you're cut" but I don't even think that's the case. I think it is simply saying "you're going to have to compete for your position in this training camp, so if you don't want to do that then find someone who isn't going to do that" I wouldn't call it the ultimate display of confidence...but not disprespect either.
The Texans pretty much told Foreman that he is not playing up to his contract numbers and if you don't restructure you will probably be in danger of being cut. He probably didn't want to restructure so the Texans told him to find a deal if he doesn't want to chance being a camp casualty. Letting the player know where he stands in March is far classier than just cutting him out of nowhere in August.
