    I have a good friend, John Morton, an offensive assistant for New Orleans Saints, and he told me that the rumors of us trading for Michael Bennett are true!

    He said we are looking to ship Dominick Davis to the Saints for Michael Bennett and a 2007 2nd round pick.

    I don't like what I am hearing!:francis:

    Why would the Saints send Bennett and a high draft pick away for Domanick Davis just to sit him behind Bush and McAllister? That doesn't make any sense at all, although I would definitely consider that deal if it were offered. I would think the Saints would be looking to acquire a player at a position of greater need.

    Would definately tick some people off around here. I'm not sure how I feel about that trade yet. DD has been good to us, but we have a lot of depth at the RB position. And a second rounder is pretty nice. That's a tough call.

    doesn't make sense, but ill do d.davis for a 2nd rounder right now!! remember corey dillion was acquired for a 2nd rounder. So this would be a steal in my opinion.

    are you out of your mind??????? hell no should we give up dominick davis, as good as a 2nd round pick may sound DD has done too much for the texans to be shipped out to a team that he won't even start a game in. Bennet is more of a injury prone than DD

    have you all forgotten what DD has done while he was here, just think what he could do with a IMPROVE oline, im loyal to DD, and i hope he finishes his career here

    Hell no! I don't believe that crap.

    Thanks for the info, but the Texans are getting raped if they do that deal. DD is the only solid back on this team that can run with Carr in Kubiak's offense.

    So NO would end up having DD, Bush, and Mcallister? Casserly must of pushed this offer before the door knocked him in the ass!

    People, seriously.....you want Bennett to be your starting RB? With Morency, Lundy, and Smith backing him up?

    I don't think so.

    One of the biggest reasons it has been said that we passed on Reggie was because "We already have a good RB: Domanick Davis." Why would we send him off for someone else? Also, the only reason the Saints want to move Bennent is because they dont want another Back....I'm not buying it.:pigfly:

    Complete nonsense...

    First off, since a lot of the top talent that would have come out next year came out THIS YEAR, that second round pick may not be worth all that much.

    Second off, why would they trade for DD, of all people? So that they can have a $150 million dollar backfield?!?! That makes no sense.

    This is ridiculous. A HORRIBLE trade for BOTH teams involved.

    Just to add to the speculation, what if the Saints have real problems signing Bush? (if he's not already signed, I'm not 100%).
    This move, or just the rumor of it, would possibly get Bush in line.. OR.. if it IS true, it could signal a Bush-trade.

    Not saying any of this is true, but hey, I'm allowed to speculate! :)

    Could be DD's injury will shorten his career, this right after signing a large contract. Might be best to dump his salary while he still has trade value. I think Lundy will pass Morency on the debth chart. DD didnt have break away speed before the knee injury, he will be even slower now. Also, Kubiak doesnt think shifty backs fit his scheme. There will be plenty of young stud RB's coming out next year. Peterson out of OU? Good RB's come out every year. You will not see many 6'-7"/4.68 fyd/40.5" VL/ DE's coming out. Keep in mnd Kubiac's offense doesnt need a 1st round RB. 2nd round will be fine. I like the trade. DD will never earn his 5yr contract.

    Maybe McAllister(sp?) is on the way out? Can the Saints afford that?
    Maybe DD's injury is more severe that we know?
    I believe Lundy is our RB of the future, hasn't Kubiak been following him since he was a kid?

    Kubiak just said that DD should be on the field starting next weeks mini camp.

    Texans | Kubiak optimistic D. Davis will return to action soon
    Fri, 2 Jun 2006 17:57:35 -0700

    Carmine Pirone, of HoustonTexans.com, reports Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak is optimistic RB Domanick Davis (knee) will return to action soon. Kubiak said, "I'm hoping Domanick does something next week. We're actually just going to do a walk-through on Monday and Tuesday, and I hope he's going to be a part of that. I would actually like to see him get a few reps before we call it a summer, so I'm hoping everything will work out."

    First pass on Bush, then second trade away your starting RB?? That makes no sense at all. I understand Kubiak can get great production out of lesser known backs, but that would be going a little too far IMO.

    Agreed, this trade doesn't make sense for either team, although if we were offered Bennett and a 2nd for Domanick Davis I'd likely do it, more for the pick (will probably be in the 33-37 range of the 2007 draft) than for Bennett. Davis has done pretty well for us, but I think Morency is the same type of RB and has the potential to be as good or better, especially in Kubiak's system, plus he doesn't have the injury history od Domanick, though he is already a year older. Bennett would at least bring us a different type of RB and give us that Tatum Bell-type type speed back, so we'd be exchanging for a RB with similar overall talent (albeit a different style) and adding a high 2nd round pick.

    That said, I can't see the Saints making that trade, maybe for a defensive player like Morlon Greenwood, but then I don't know if I see the Texans making that trade either. While we just got DeMeco Ryans and I think he can easily be as good and likely better than Greenwood and we have decent depth at LB, I don't know how aggressively they're really looking to add another RB.

    Stranger things have happened!
    Who would have thought we would have 30+ new faces in camp this season?

    I dont believe this rummor but nothing will shock me considering what Kubiak has done so far.

    I would take the dea. And here's why:

    1.) We are using Kubiak's blocking scheme from Denver. Denver was able to plug in 3 different running backs and be successful, while all were average.

    2.) Michael Bennett would be perfect for our system. I think if this trade goes through he will be very productive. Sure, he's not going to be the recieving threat DD was out of the backfield, but we've already surrounded Carr with plenty of weapons.

    3.) We could get a great player next year with that 2nd round pick. We can fill a need such as CB or S. With a minor downgrade if anything at RB, and we get a good player next year, this trade looks like a good one for us.

    I still have no idea why the Saints would want DD though. Maybe they are shopping McAllister? Still, though, this trade doesn't make much sense. I thought they were trying to get rid of a RB, not get another good one.
