Why would you want to trade Brown??? He is your best player.

A RB coming off an ACL injury, about to hit 30 years of age and only crack 1,000 yards rushing once.

I've been waiting for him to breakout for years. At this point I think he is what he is and it's nothing that can't be replaced with a midround pick.

If we can get a high 2nd rounder for him while he still has good value, I'd rather do it and draft a guy in the 3rd round (Shonn Grenne? Rashad Jennings?) who could easily put up the same kind of numbers for a lesser price and at a younger age.

We are still a few years away from really being able to make a run at a Superbowl. By that time Ronnie will be shot. Might as well get value for him now and draft a younger replacement.

Almost 30? I didn't know he was that old.

Not to mention, we'd have to give him a huge contract pretty soon.

He isn't a workhorse type of back.

As much as I love Ronnie, he really is a dime a dozen. Kevin Smith, Matt Forte, Steve Slaton were all mid round picks last year that did as well if not better then him and have less wear more upside and better contract situations.

No reason to think we couldn't do the same with a coach that was able to get Marion Barber in round 4.

He's 28 this year. If we wait any longer to trade him, his value will be gone do to age. RBs hit the wall at age 30. He'll be slowing down big time right when we expect our team to be true contenders.
