    Circle April 28 on your calendar. That's the NFL draft, and unless something strange happens, David Carr will be traded around that time. Texans GM Rick Smith's toughest job will be creating a market for Carr. I'm guessing he's going to have to settle for a fifth-round draft pick, but it only takes one motivated buyer to drive the price up. As for who is going to replace Carr, I think it'll be Jake Plummer. Problem is, there is a market for him. The Texans probably are going to end up paying more than they'd like to pay.

    Just another Richard Justice article. I thought maybe you had some real inside information.

    Rumors persist that the Vikings could trade with the Houston Texans for quarterback David Carr, who might cost just a fourth-round draft pick. Minnesota and Oakland are two teams in need of a quarterback. Other teams that might be interested in trading for or signing a veteran quarterback could be Miami, Cleveland, Kansas City, Jacksonville, Chicago and Carolina.

    What makes you think he is just going to give him away like that? The only thing that has lead us to believe he is going to be traded at all is McClain and Justice. I dont doubt Carr could be traded, but somebody is going to have to make an offer that meets what Richard Smith wants, I just dont see him lowering his price so he can simply get rid of him.

    Oakland does need a QB. How about we send Carr for a 3rd rounder and we swap 2nd round pix? I don't have my draft value chart handy. That puts us in the hunt for Kalil or an OT in the 2nd (key is getting ahead of the ilk of DET, CLE, and AZ).

    Of course, Porter is looking to leave, right? That's a question, not a statement of fact. Though, I am hesitant to look for Al's castaways in the wake of the Buchanon incident.

    How about giving us a hint as to who is going to be our QB under this grand plan?

    The fact that they're talking about it makes me think they ... not me ... have a plan .

    What's the worst that can happen ... Carr started 16 games the year we went 2-14 . So if Sage starts 16 games are we going 1-15 ... I think not .

    I think Jerry Porter is a good receiver, not his fault he plays for the Raiders. I'm not a fan of the trade-carr crew, but if Oakland is involved, I wouldn't mind getting Joey Porter.
