    Bills send 12th overall and 7th from Balt to SD for 30th overall, RB Turner, and mid rd pick in 08
    Buffalo is actually one of the teams that we are hearing the most buzz about a trade with. There is a lot of history between the Chargers FO and the Bills. We don't want to see Turner too often, so Buffalo would be an ideal AFC team for him to go to. The twelfth pick would give the bolts a shot at a great safety or receiver, Reggie Nelson would probably still be there or Rice (however character issues may preclude them from taking Rice.)

    There is also some talk about the Packers having interest in a trade for Turner. That would also be a great fit.

      If we do get the pick, I'd pefer a safty. Then draft a WR in 2nd round or 3rd.

        Gotta agree, I really like Jason Hill and want to see the Chargers get him in the second round somewhere, but you can't really argue with going first round WR if they do, there's plenty of S depth in the draft this year. Either way, past history shows whatever AJ decides won't be too bad. See 2004 draft.

          Packers swap 16th 4 30th and Turner....Nelson should still be there for you guys and Ginn jr, Meachem, Jarrett, Bowe which ever way you guys would want to go and the Packers solve running back prob. The only thing is it would have to be a draft day trade incase Marshawn fall to the Packers at 16 then they would take him over Turner.

          If the Chargers did make this trade and want to go WR (Bowe, Jarrett, or Meachem) I'd trade down back into the 20's and grab and extra 2nd round pick that would be great for you guys. You moved up from 30 and got an extra 2nd for a back-up behind possibly the greatest running back of all time (when its all said and done)!

            I don't know how unrealistic it is...The Falcons got swapped 1st Rounders and got the Texans 2nd rounder this year. Matt Schaub has much less proven ability then The Burner.

              THe Problem here is Michael Turner has a tag on him for a 1st and 3rd as an UFA. Not sure I see that happening...I think with the change in coaching staff you don't want to change to many things and with Turner in the backfield you can get another quality season out of his legs and draft someone late in the 4th or 5th to be the 3rd back. Maybe like a Chris Henry or Garrett Wolfe a fellow NIU Wildcat

                options, we got options!

                AJ made the right move giving him the highest tender, now he controls where Micheal goes. We are even loaded behind Turner, as Sproles is unproven but very talented, and same with Pinnock. We don't need Wolfe (Sproles), but will probably look at a bigger back on the second day.

                I wish the burner nothing but the best, and would love for him to terrorize the Pats twice a year in Buffalo. He was awesome last year, and his big run against Indy the year before, kind of put him on the map of GM's around the league.

                  Burner Rumors

                  I've heard all the same rumors; however, it appears as though a sign-and-trade deal is more likely, a la Matt Schaub to the Texans, so the team getting The Burner will not have him land on the open market in one year. It appears that the Bills would be in the best shape b/c they have the high pick, but the Titans have been kicking around the idea of packaging picks this year and next. The Packers will only acquire the rights to the Burner if Marshawn is gone, as stated before in this forum. I too wish the Burner all the best and hope he gets to a team that will make him a great back that he can be.

                    He wont resign to be a career back-up. He can make starter money on another team. hes alot like lamont Jordan. Both tore it up in limited action.
                    If you remember, LaMont stayed with the Jets for a long time before he got his shot so did Chester Taylor. Its not like there's no precedent in the organization either...Phillip Rivers and Drew Brees?

                      Lamont was only with the Jets for one more year than Turner has been with SD though. And as for Rivers and Brees, Brees stayed around because he was the starter, and Rivers stayed around because he was under contract and it had only been two seasons before he could get his shot.
