    Al Wilson(DEN) to Giants?

    www.rotoworld.com wire:

    Al Wilson-LB- Broncos Mar. 22 - 7:20 pm et

    NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports the Giants and Broncos are in trade talks involving middle linebacker Al Wilson.
    The Eagles, Lions, and Redskins (before they signed London Fletcher) have also reportedly been involved in talks regarding Wilson. We suspect Wilson would stay in the middle and New York would move Antonio Pierce over to weak-side linebacker if the sides can strike a deal.

    well, at least we have a TE who doesn't really catch passes that well for way more money than he's worth instead. i'm stoked. can't wait for the lack of defensive leadership and overall ability at 2/3 LB positions. if/when this goes through, i have a difficult time imagining denver as better than 3rd place in the AFC West.
    You have Cutler, everything will be fine.

    NJX-

    From what I have been told, Reese is still very much interested in acquiring Wilson but he wants the Broncos to lower the demand because of the combination of salary and potential neck injuries. I'd be suprised to see the Giants trade for him though, but I would be even more suprised to see Wilson in a Broncos uniform next year.

    Teams have different credentials in terms of physicals.

    Al passed his season ending physical at the Broncos with nothing concerning coming up on it. Denver has one of the best training staffs in the league in that regard and they take very good care of their players. I think the Giants were unwilling to take the salary that Al would come with. So, they deny it - in hopes to get Denver to lower their standards in what they want in the trade.

    It'll be pick only, no players will be involved, but at best I see the Broncos getting a third-round for him now, more likely the Giants fourth this year, plus a conditional 2008 round pick. Giants hold all the cards in this trade, they have all the leverage. Regardless, Al will be dealt. He didn't fail this physical based on any lingering effects, as Al was interviewed and said it had nothing to do with that. Strictly a financial failure here.

    Other teams remain interested. I'd like a first-day pick for him, but I'd take anything we could get for someone who is likely to either take a pay cut or be cut if a trade isn't worked.

    That's just my theory.
    And as I said it is different between failing by a bit, and miserably failing. Of course I don't want a hopeless case.

    We don't know the trade, so I can't really form an opinion on if they were going to get market value

    But you are foregetting the contract that LA signed.

    The Giants would have to take on Wilson's $5 million per year through 2010.

    I wonder if we could still trade for him for significatly less? Did he miserably fail the physical?

    No wonder Denver wanted to unload him.

    Al Wilson failed his physical with the NY Giants due to a neck injury.
