Trading gives you negotiation rights to his contract.

Eagles won't get much if anything--I have doubts. But there is a poitn to trading.


Exactly.

Now two OTHER divison rivals seem to be "interested" in T.O.,at least from the talking heads at ESPN that is.The Cowboys AND the Redskins have their feelers out supposedly.I don't see a chance in hell of A.Reid trading him within the divison though.I think he'd rather give him away for a 7th rd pick to an AFC team than give T.O. motivation like being a divison rival of the Eagles.



I honestly don't think TO will get traded. Teams will wait for him to be released. If i'm not mistaken isn't a team binded by the contract that players signed with the previous team? Would the team that traded for TO still be on the hook for the huge roster bonus?

And I really think TO would love to play within the NFC East. I think he'd want to play the Eagles twice a year. And the Redskins and Cowboys both have QBs I think TO could thrive with. If Bledsoe and Brunell are given protection they can both wing it pretty good....especially Bledsoe. Watch the Cowboys, It comes down to Parcells. Jones want TO and is probably salavating at the thought... now if Parcells wants another reclaimation project is another question. If so TO is a Cowboy next season. I think Gibbs has enough trouble makers on his team that he already can't control.

But I think the Broncos will be the team to land him.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

he could thrive with brunell?

Did you watch the skins versus the bucs?

Brunell isn't very good. The team did well, but I haven't been impressed with him over the course of the season--although he had flashes of brilliance.

Mike and Mike brought up a very good point when talking to Steve Smith this morning. Basically, how would you feel, being a receiver, on a running team, with an incentive based contract. I.e., if you catch 80 balls, but your team runs most of the time. Compare Philly's running game (or lackthereof) to KC's.

Funny, back track to November and people were saying
"No one will want TO now, his career is over"

now, Dallas, Washington, Denver, KC, and god knows how many others are more than just interested. Can't keep a stud down.

If I recall correctly, when Champ Bailey and Clinton Portis were traded, each received new contracts from their respective teams. The reason a team might trade is that they would be the only team throwing contract offers at TO if they trade for him. 2-3 teams seriously interested in him could make it very dicey trying to get him as a FA.

yes.

No way TO goes to a team and has minimal effect to the offense.

Two completely different types of wr.

I agree. LJ is always near 200 and 3 td's. Now if TO adds another 2 or 3 and maybe a FG here or there. Botta Bam.

I don't think TO can average 2 or 3 td's per game. that would be 32 td's. More like a TD every game and a third.

Teams would totally play stall ball on KC if they got that offense I would think, and their D still isn't all that.

that's true but the only reason either were traded was becasue they wanted a new bigger contract. both the skins and broncos could have stuck with the contracts they signed previously (and were still under) but both portis and bailey were saying they would hold out if they did not get a new contract. those were the sole reasons they were traded becasue neither team wanted to pay what they wanted and did not want to deal with the disruption it could cause.


TO was under contract still when he was shipped to the eagles. they could have kept him at that contract but gave him a new one so he would be "suposedly" happy and ready to play.
