    Vick, if he violates his contract in a certain way (I think being in jail or convicted or something falls under that someone said) can be cut without penalty.

    Petrino loves power running. He has a great explosive back but lacks a power guy.

    So...Falcons give the Chiefs a 2nd round pick (they have 2 next year) and a conditional 4th in '09 draft for Larry Johnson. We can pony up the money and you get a high pick (probably top 40).

    Only thing I wouldn't do is throw in Norwood, which they would probably want. Kind of like the Champ Bailey (2nd round pick) and Clinton Portis (Larry Johnson) deal a couple years ago when Bell (Norwood) was thrown in. Norwood is too beasty to not be on our team.

    Just dreaming...

    Norwood and LJ would be insane.

        that is ridiculous, hes been starting for a year and a half and youre saying he has 2 good years left? LJ is a tank but its true that Herm Edwards is asking way too much of him, and will run him into the ground like this, which could maybe make Larry Johnsons career end up similar to someone like Earl Campbell, but he still lasted a lot more than 4 years. But I dont blame Larry for wanting to get a big payday now with the market being as good as it is and him being in his prime.

          Conditional 4th, lol.

          Tatum Bell wasn't thrown in, the Redskins included their 2nd round pick in the deal which the Broncos used on Bell.

          Faulk was traded to the St. Louis Rams the following season due to problems he referred to as "misunderstandings." Faulk had missed practices and was considered holding out for a new contract. Colts president Bill Polian did not want his young team's chemistry damaged, so he traded Faulk for second- and fifth-round picks in the upcoming draft (used by the Colts to draft LB Mike Peterson and DE Brad Scioli).

          So it was less.
          And the Colts also had the 4th overall pick in the 1999 Draft, with which they could have used to draft either Edgerrin James or Ricky Williams, hence why Polian pulled the trigger on trading away the nearing-malcontent Faulk.

            6.5 touchdowns a season

            Last year he had:
            73 receptions
            900 yards
            5 touchdowns

            How exactly has his production declined from past years? He is still putting up just as good as stats as he has in the past and he is still making the pro bowl every year.

            The stats don't back up your claim.
            yeah but watching Tony play I dont feel like hes the same dominant player he used to be. Still an elite TE (second only to Gates), but not quite as good and thats my opinion regardless of stats. And the stats would indicates hes slowing down...

            G GS REC YDS AVG LG TD 20+ 40+ 1st
            1999 15 15 76 849 11.2 73 11 8 1 47
            2000 16 16 93 1203 12.9 39 9 16 0 66
            2001 16 16 73 917 12.6 36 6 13 0 49
            2002 16 16 63 773 12.3 42 7 10 1 39
            2003 16 16 71 916 12.9 67 10 14 2 48
            2004 16 16 102 1258 12.3 32 7 19 0 69
            2005 16 16 78 905 11.6 39 2 9 0 45
            2006 15 15 73 900 12.3 57 5 9 1 54

            Look at his number from 99-04 and from 05-06. 7 TDs combined in those 2 years, compared to 8.33 a year from 99-04, and look at the decline in receptions for 20+ or 40+ yards. Hes still great but I think were seeing the begginning of a decline for him.

              Well, the Falcons obviously wouldn't give a top 10 pick (which they will likely have) for a 27 year old RB. So a top 40 pick and a 3rd/4th would probably be the only option. And keep in mind I said dreaming.

              I didn't know that about Bell.

                Well Ted Thompson likes to have a guy in the backfield who he can trust. He has Shawn Alexander in Seattle and he tried to keep Ahman Green.

                  Good article. Very interesting to see how this will end up.
                  The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                    well i hope dallas doesnt shoot for him, i dont want to pay him that type of money...but he deserves it, and i cant blame him for asking...if briggs, and samuel along with others feel the same, he should as well...he had a huge season, consider that he started his career behind holmes, he wants his big payday...if the chiefs dont want that type of money invested, they should seek a trade and part ways now...

                    doubt the pack really still need him, if the browns have that type of money it wouldnt be a bad idea for them to go after him, or the texans

                      If KC does trade him or something, their RB situation is going to be pure crap.

                        actually a 2nd and a 4th isnt that bad at all...now id prefer some type of player involved with these type of deals, id look for something along the lines of, 2nd, 4th, and a back along the lines of Ladell Betts...or a 3rd rder as well, getting alot of picks for a player can be a dice roll, but if you hit on all the picks, you definately end up with the upper hand


                        All I have to say is Javon Walker, everyone tried to blast him, including favre for thinking about holding out, he came out and played and look at what happened...if I were LJ id stick to my word and hold out just the same, the chiefs should at least get compensated if they dont want to pay the big bucks...i would of been shopping him around at draft time knowing this was coming

                          Actually, I believe that they were to some small degree.

                            I coulda rushed for 1,000 yards and made the pro-bowl team with that Vikings offense though....and I am a slow fat white guy.
