Update: The Falcons will likely shop Schaub this offseason as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2007 campaign, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Recommendation: Atlanta may look to address needs at defensive end or safety by dealing Schaub for an extra selection in April's draft, rather than running the risk of receiving no compensation for him if he walks after the season. For a career backup, Schaub will draw plenty of interest around the league and could net the Falcons a second or third-round selection.

Hmm...where will he go? Not many WCO teams anymore. Houston might give up a 2nd for him. If Im Jacksonville, Id make a trade for Schaub. Or maybe Detroit gives up their 2nd for him and drafts Calvin Johnson or Joe Thomas with their 1st?

The plot thickens....

I would love the Chiefs to go after him but we have so many holes I don't think we want to give up any draft picks we all ready are down a 4th round pick.

Well, Schaub is certainly ready to start in the NFL and if he is looking for more money that the Falcons are willing to fork over then Atlanta has to look at all the offers they get and choose the best one b/c otherwise they get nothing in return

I think DET would be stupid to take him, they all ready have Kitna and Mcown has a lot of potential.

The plot thinkens should be your catch phrase from now on.

Anyway, If he doesn't go to a team that runs the WCO, I think that he'll be a dissapointment. If he goes to a team who runs a WCO, it's gunna be fun to watch. He's a system QB.

Well, theres not many WCO teams anymore. Its a dying breed. And the teams that do run WCO, theyre all set at qb except for Tampa, and Atlanta would never trade Schaub to Tampa.

I think Schaub can work in other schemes. He's more comfortable with WCO, but he can work as a regular qb, especially with his mobility.

Id love to get him, but im not so sure id give up a second straight up for him we, we have far too many other needs to spend a pick on a QB IMO.

He reminds me so much of Matt Leinart. I'm not down for the noodle arms.

Orlovsky is nothing special at all. He should never be a starter in the NFL longterm.

Schaub is definately starter material I'm just not sure where

Question... What makes you all think Schaub is starting material? I'm really thinking there is just a bunch a bandwagon jumpers in here because, he hasnt proven a damn thing. He has been sporadic as hell (including pre season) and is easily the most overrated player in the NFL. I still do not understand the Schaub infatuation... makes no sense at all. Seriously, have you even seen him play?

How do you know if Schaub is starter material? He's played like 3 games.

He may have potential to be good, but no one knows how good he is. Which I find hilarious because of how much teams are going to have to pay to get this guy. The most overrated player in the league right now, and he doesn't even play. :lol:

He isnt worth a 1round pick.3rd or 4th roundat most.

Why not to the Raiders for their 3rd rounder?

That way Raiders fans could get their wish and take Johnson, maybe Thomas.

Just what I was thinking. They bring in a QB that is not a rookie and can choose to give him protection or a weapon with the #1 overall pick.

QB value always gets a bit inflated, so I expect the Falcons to get a good deal. I could see a deal that's tied into Schaub's overall productivity with an additional pick in 2008. The Raiders make a lot of sense with Greg Knapp being there. Schaub's arm strenght isn't bad ... which is what the WCO comments make it sound like. It's not great, but it's good enough, probably better than Chad Pennington. If they could pull off a deal for Schaub, then I think the Raiders would end up going with Calvin Johnson at the top of the draft. I do think this creates the scenario where, if the Falcons struggle, Brohm could figure into their plans next year, depending on where they pick.

Btw, I wonder about the comment of the WCO being a dying breed.

Denver, Houston, Philadelphia, Green Bay, Minnesota, Tampa Bay, Seattle

all still use strong variants of the initial WCO, while plenty of teams incorporate the WCO into packages and scheme usages, albeit, not as their "base" offense. That's not bad. Sure, it isn't like a few years ago, when the WCO seemed to be everywhere, but I don't think the dropoff is that much to call it a dying breed.

Any player can be on the trading block. It's what they get for him that matters. And no one is going to trade a first round pick to Atlanta for Matt Schaub. Maybe Atlanta can make a deal like what Green Bay did with Seattle for Matt Hasselbach a few years ago.

Just wondering if you realized that Matt Hasselbeck got the Packers late first round value. Schaub's more accomplished than Hasselbeck when Matt was dealt. When Rob Johnson was dealt to Buffalo, I believe he netted them a first and fourth, although I'd have to check again. At relative points, Schaub has done more than Rob Johnson.

QB value is always inflated. I'm not saying Schaub will definitely get high value, as it depends on the market, but I think the Falcons could very well end up with first round value for Schaub.
__________

Btw, the bet here is still Jacksonville. I still don't believe Leftwich will return, and Schaub's decision making could give them the stability needed at the position for the offense. Even if Leftwcih returns, there will be competition brought in. While I don't think the Jaguars would involve the 17th pick anymore (previously, I had once mocked the Jaguars getting Schaub and Atlanta's 2nd rounder for the 17th overall), I do think something like Jacksonville's 2nd rounder and a pick in 2008 (depending on starts, could be a first), might be something that's considered.

The Raiders obviously are up there, with their need for a QB and Greg Knapp being there. I think the Browns/Dolphins might be considerations ... but their fans would likely be aghast at the move. I wouldn't rule out the Ravens ... but if the price got high, then no. Over on the NFC side of things, Minnesota comes to mind as a possibility, but if the price got high, then no. There's probably a couple darkhorse teams that might get involved (I hate to say it ... but if the price isn't that high ... I could see the Bears perhaps poking around and maybe Carolina would be a darkhorse option.

I do find it interesting that the guy that had a huge role in developing Schaub is now the Falcons QB coach (Bill Musgrave).

I think CHI or CLE should aquire Shaub. Both teams have questionable QB's & bringing in Shaub would promote a huge competition in training camp/pre-season. Plus I think Shaub would be a good fit for both teams, especially CHI.

With Oakland getting rid of Aaron Brooks, now I have my fingers crossed they trade their 2nd round pick for Matt Schaub. :) The 33rd pick would be close enough to what the Falcons want, in terms of value.

The feeling I've gotten since a month or so ago is that the package is going to have to be protected. It's possible the Raiders consider giving up their 2nd, but I'm not sure about that. I could see something like their 3rd, a future pick in 2008 that is dependant on, perhaps, starts, and another piece (heck, maybe Moss ... if they can find a 3rd team to slide Moss to).

Falcons signed QB James Kilian, formerly of the Nashville Kats.

It's possible Atlanta is adding quarterbacks to brace itself for a Matt Schaub trade, but more probable that Kilian was added as a "camp body."

Interesting, this may be meaningless, or it could be a sign of things to come..

Agreed, while a lot of new head coaches usually like to bring in their guy. When you've got a team with so much money invested in Vick they've got no choice but to stick with him.
