This is true, but it's also business...buy low and sell high. The Skins will be selling low here.
Muhammad had a "bad" year two years ago because of Smith, and everyone was writing him off for dead. Then this year Smith gets hurt, and he blows up again. You don't think he's going to demand a huge contract or a high draft pick in a trade?
Gardner hasn't done much recently, so the prospective buyers will be willing to give up less than what he may actually be worth. That's why I don't think he's worth a second rounder.
