    "A sports talk radio station in Dallas this week reported the Houston Texans and Vikings are working on a trade involving receiver Troy Williamson. The Texans were interested in drafting Williamson last year and reported to be high on his potential."

    Saw this at HPF, thought it might make for good/different discussion.

    Well, let's see.

    We give up the number one pick to the Vikings, and in return we get Williamson, their 1st & 2nd round picks this year, and their 1st and 2nd round picks next year . . .

    . . . yeah, that'll work for me.

    So within 48-72 hours of the time that Kubiak is announced as the Texans new HC, he's working on a trade with the Vikings for a WR ? OK

    This would be a fun thing to kick around if it wern't so far fetched. What does
    make it a bit of a teaser is that it is well known we were very interested in Williamson as our top Draft pick last April. But we have so many more needs
    of a higher priority than a #2 WR, like a DE & MLB for our new 4-3 and on the O side we need another tackle and TE.

    As someone at HPF suggested, if the Texans are after Williamson, they are likely trading away a player like DD. No way they are dropping that far off #1 (when you suck as bad as we have you better take one of the blue chippers) and no way do I see the Vikes trading Williamson away for a second or third.
     
  10. If we draft Reggie maybe we can trade DD for Williamson. I'm not real sure about the salary cap penalties or anything. But if we can do that I would do it.

    Reggie is :superman:

    He might make a good #2 guy. As long as we don't give too much for him.
     

  12. Exactly, we posted at the same time.:cool:

    So what's with Williamson? Did he turn out to be a bust, or what?
     
  14. Shoot, let's trade Gaffney for Willamson.:drool:

    he never really saw the field. I think he was either 4th or 5th on the depth chart.

    certainly doesnt appear good enough for us to move out of the top 5.
     
  16. Not real sure but Wr's take time to develop unless your name is Randy Moss.

    AJ, Mathis, Williamson, and Bush lining up does look scary (on paper at least).
