Miami and Tampa, but I don't think it would be worth the money at all to trade a top 5 pick for Alexander and then have to pay him. Actually, I don't think Alexander is worth a top 25 pick, but thats just my opinion.

I agree completely. In the end, I would rather have a guy like benson or brown, who have plently more years left in the league than alexander, and who, in my opinion, are better prospects than alexander ever was. And besides, the dollars Alexander will command will place him out of bidding territory for teams that are already close to the cap.

The only problem is that you don't know what you are going to get out of Benson and Beown, but you do know you will get 1200 yards 10+ TD's out of Alexander. Both Miami and Tampa Bay are in good situations, they both have solid D's and good coaches. Yeah but I do agree on the money thing, but nothing comes cheap.

They should trade him for a high pick, draft Antrelle Rolle to help that porous defense and sign LaMont Jordan (the last of the promising RB FAs). Jordan will come cheap if he is allowed to start and they really need to help the D. Rolle would be great for them because in the NFC west they play the Rams and Cardinals twice - 2 pass happy teams.

I agree, but if we can't sign Lucas, then maybe.

Money will likely keep Miami or Tampa from attempting to get SA. Of course those top 5 contracts weren't cheap the last time I checked. Anyway, there are enough questions about how SA could really run behind a less than great O-line, which would definitely be the situation in Miami short-term. Alexander would almost force Miami into too short of a window to win. Tampa would be more logical imo because they have more pieces in place to make a playoff run in a far weaker conference. Most likely, Alexander stays put. I haven't heard any interest from Tampa in Alexander.
