  • Trade Rumor Thread

    I thought there was one, but I did a half assed search and didn't find one. We can use this (or combine it with the real one) for lesser trade rumors than the bigger ones.

    According to Mike Lombardi:

    The Falcons are seriously considering trading for Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez and might even give up their second-round pick to make the deal.

    This story has been picked up by ESPN (insider and the blogs) and is kind of interesting. While it seems like something the Falcons and TD wouldn't do (emphasis on building through the draft), but clearly the Falcons are trying to acquire a TE (tried to trade for Gonzo mid season last year, brought LJ Smith for a couple of visits, high on Pettigrew). I wouldn't mind this trade to be honest, because he would help a ton with Ryan's development (you could almost call Ryan spoiled with the weapons he would have) and could easily vault the Falcons offense into the top 5. He had a tremendous year last year and doesnt seem like he is going to slow down for another 2 years at the very least and would help a ton in the red zone (something the Falcons had a ton of trouble with at the beginning of last year). At the same time though, keeping a balanced and happy offense with Roddy White, Michael Jenkins, Harry Douglas, Tony Gonzalez, and Michael Turner would be a bit hard.

      And you give up what?


      I want him on Dallas, but only if a 5th or 6th would get it done...He would fit in nicely returning punts and playing the slot for us, but I have no idea what Buffalo is asking for.

        Buffalo is asking for a 4th for Roscoe. The Browns were reportedly interested as well.

          why does Buffalo want to trade him?

            TO, Lee Evans, James Hardy, and Josh Reed possibly are ahead of him on the depth chart, Steve Johnson also had some flashes last season, and Leodis is returning kicks.

              Johnson is definitely ahead of him too. Parrish wants to be more involved as a receiver in the offense, he always mentions it in interviews. I wouldn't be surprised if he somehow initiated/asked to be traded. He is way overpaid right now for his role as a #6 WR and a punt returner.

                I would give up a 4th for him. He would be our number 4 reciever and bring an imediate impact to the return game.

                  I would give up a 4th for Parrish too. He would definitely be an improvement over Baker/Nance and we would finally have a steady returner.

                    I know I was (fairly) high on him as a prospect, but I don't feel that a punt returner and a guy who may never give you a return on offense is worth a 4th.

                    Oldie but a goodie.

                      Jeeze if this happens the NFC South would be loaded with TE's (Winslow Shockey and Gonzalez.)

                        how did Hardy get ahead of him?

                          Not a rumor, but a long snapper just got traded :D

                          Panthers acquired LS J.J. Jansen from the Packers in exchange for an undisclosed draft choice in 2011.

                            not even a 2010 draft pick but a 2011


                            Saints 2014 draft wish list:
                            - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
                            - Corner or Wideout in the first
                            - No reaching
                            - No Kelvin Benjamin
