Which team do you think it is? Do you think it'll happen? If so, when?

...anyone else think Shonn Greene could be the best fantasy RB rookie?

I have some "hopes" that it COULD be St. Louis.

Think about it, We have Steven Jackson, and then ... Kenneth Darby, Antonio Pittman, Chris Obgonoya, and Samkon Gado.

Billy Deaveny, Steve Spagnuolo and Pat Shurmur are going to be running a POWER running game. Thomas Jones is a power runner, and our star Steven Jackson is a power runner. Jones could take some carries when Jackson goes out for a breather, and we could do a running back by committee approach like Carolina, Tennessee, and whoever else.

Jackson has been working at running routes a bit too.

Image this this set-up.

WR - Jackson || TE McMichael || LT Barron | LG Bell | C Jason Brown | RG Incognito | RT J. Smith || WR Avery
.................................................. ..........................QB Bulger
.................................................. ..........................FB Karney
.................................................. ..........................RB T. Jones

That's some power right there.

Thomas Jones is not a power runner. He's a cutback runner.

He's got some power, even so. He could still spell Jackson.

I didn't know where Greene went, but I had a feeling that a team would be very happy with him. He runs so hard, I was an opposing fan, but I had to admire his ability seeing him live.

I think Seattle would be the most likely place. Their new OC Greg Knapp is very run orientated and they need an upgrade over Julius Jones and TJ Duckett. Jones would be a good fit and he could come in a be the starter right away. Jones is a full-time back, something neither Jones or Duckett is.

Why would I fume?

You said Shonn Greene would be a high 2nd round pick. You were wrong. I was right. Again.

I'm more interested to find out what the Jets will get in return. Perhaps a WR? Or just draft picks as usual?

I would guess Seattle. Lol Julius Jones and Thomas Jones

I didn't even think of that. How rattled would Julius be if Thomas came in a stole his starting spot.

I think he can be which is why I took him in your war league.

Oh thank god, please be true. I own Shonn Greene and Leon Washington in my Dynasty League. Come on, trade him! Trade him!

I just read somewhere that it is a false rumor but if its true, Seattle seems like a good fit for him.

I think Arizona can't be ruled out. Wells is always injured. I know it's his old team, but there's a new regime there with no memory of his past.

Biggest concern would be who is going to pick up the rest of his contract. $20M left or something???

Spot on, spot on. He does have some power to him, but I agree with Bearfan_51's assessment.

I'm very interested to see if this is true...

I have thought for awhile it's Seattle for or including Deion Branch, I honestly don't think it could be another team other then Seattle.

I think he'll be working with his brother in Seattle.

The only team in the division that even makes sense is Seattle.

I think Arizona would be a good fit. Wells can't carry the load by himself. Hes always getting hurt.

Actually not a major concern. He's playing this year for next to nothing (900k in base salary, he counts for 2.5 million against the cap for the Jets) and he's going to be cut after this season in all likelihood because it'll result in significant cap savings (7.4 mill against the cap, 5.9 of which will be saved by cutting him) and it's the last year of his contract. So he's got like 10 million against the cap for 2 more years, but it's really just this year.

Don't think this happens, though if it does Shonn Greene would definitely be a fantasy monster. Also would be curious to see if it's for picks or a WR, I'd imagine since nobody is going to trade a legit WR for Jones and it wouldn't be that much of an upgrade the trade woudl be for picks.

I don't see it being AZ, we dont have the cap space and Hightower and Wells are good options

Not that it makes this impossible, but Rex Ryan just vehemently shot down these rumors. Just something to add to the equation of whether or not this is going to happen.
