    I’d like to see them trade for Patrick Peterson.

    I would too, but I think I read before the trade deadline that he wants to retire a Cardinal. I could be wrong though. He’d look really good in a Texan uniform

    It would be cool to end up with the guy we originally targeted and JJ playing together.

    Just as fyi, PP has 2 years left on his contract, would leave almost no dead money ($1.6 mil) and would have cap hits of $11.25 & $12.3. A bargain for a top corner in his 28 year old prime. Way prefer to see something happen with him than Bell.

    I don’t really see a trade happening because of what the potential price could be(few draft picks)
    Also I would still go after Bell. We can’t go back out there with Lamar as our starting RB. I never thought foreman was that good anyways and blue is blue. We have so many holes on O-line and corner that’s really gonna be majority of our picks in the draft so no room to get a RB.

    Haha, well of course he’d like to retire a Cardinal cause that would mean Keim was to extend him since he’s UC through 2020. I still bet he gets moved before. PP wasn’t happy they fired Wilkes after one season.

    I've been a big proponent of signing Bell but if I had to choose between Bell or Peterson, I'm going to trade and use that financial slot for PP. I could draft a RB to answer that need. Snell, Kentucky could be the type of runner that fits OB's system. Snell and Foreman would be interesting for next season.

    That probably would cost us atleast our 1st round pick, and he's 28 to 29 years old. I dunno, wonder about the wisdom of that trade from the Texans perspective considering everything ?

    See I agree with this however with Benny I see him not making it past 3rd round. We aren’t in the position right now to take a RB that early with no many holes on the OL. Definitely if we made a trade for Pat P which means we are probably out a pick or two.

    I also hope this 2nd round pick we got was worth trading an all pro LT.

    That’s awesome, maybe I read that management wants him to retire there. I’d love this guy on our team.

    I still like my original ideal offseason. I think it addresses many of our problems on both sides of the ball. I have, however, been moving toward Trent Brown over Donovan Smith as the free agent OT.

    Agreed, You would probably have to trade a 1st plus a 2nd and Mercilus. As much as I want them to fix the OL I would do this trade and try to sign Donovan Smith in FA and draft another OT with the other 2nd rd pick.
