Was not expecting this. Only a seventh to what, fifth rounder I'm guessing. Great deal.

Not a bad pickup considering the lack of depth outside of Houston on the Falcons roster.

Aren't you basically getting Denver's version of Chris Houston? Talented guy that can't put it together?

Yatta!

Considering that Houston is Atlanta's best corner, then getting another one of him for a late round pick is a good move. You'd think that one of them should play up to their potential.

Being Atlanta's best corner is like being the world's fastest cripple.

Our best corner is Brent Grimes.

And he will surprise some people. Meaning everybody.

I don't get this move...why trade an up and coming corner that you invested a first day pick in with both Champ and Bly getting up there in years? Was he really that ineffective?

The defensive backfield got too crowded with the emergence of Jack Williams (who has great potential) and the acquisition of Calvin Lowry off waivers.

Foxworth would've been an unrestricted FA this offseason, so one way or another the team was either going to have to fish or cut bait. Not that I particularly like the trade from a value perspective...

It's a good deal for both teams IMO. Atlanta needs the depth and Foxworth will have his chance to step up, no doubt.

i think disappointing would be a good word to use here. his struggles in preseason combined with the emergence of jack ********** williams is what did him in. but then again denver has done a piss poor job with personnel moves in the past few years so it's hard for me to believe that this will turn out well for us.

Who's only been in the league ONE season and is just 23 yrs old.

DAMN! Jets tried getting him with the Robertson deal and then they go and cut him.

He got traded because he never progressed and is essentially an average CB. Broncos were going to lose him in free agency probably because most likely they would've chosen not to resign him due to him wanting a decent contract.

As long as he doesn't line up against Reggie Wayne, he should be fine. ;)

Darrent Williams was the one who got abused by him, right?
