Maybe the Cards GM has been playing too much fantasy and thinks he can pick up Moss to cover while Fitz is out and then spin him to another team ;-7 ;-7


And Bryant Johnson. No way Denny's dumb enough to trade for another WR.


The real question here is whether Matt Millen can work a deal to get both Moss and Porter in Detroit :-D

From azcentral.com:

Trading OT Davis unlikely
No. 2 overall draft pick from 2001 appears headed for free agency

The Cardinals are open to the possibility of trading offensive left tackle Leonard Davis, but his salary and contract status will make it difficult to reach a deal.

Rod Graves, the team's vice president for football operations, declined to comment other than to say, "we're always going to explore all of our options when it comes to our players."

Davis declined comment Wednesday.

The second overall pick in the 2001 draft, Davis is in the last year of a contract that is paying him $9.16 million this season. Any team interested in trading for him would want to sign him to a long-term deal, and Davis' agent, Ryan Tollner, said he has heard nothing about a possible trade.

"Just from a pure football sense, it would seem illogical," Tollner said of a possible trade.

The NFL's trading deadline is Monday afternoon, but deals are seldom made at this point in the season. Players switching teams would have to learn new systems, and contract details can complicate matters.

The Cardinals have no backup tackle ready to step in for Davis. They could move guard Reggie Wells to tackle and insert Deuce Lutui or Chris Liwienski at guard, but Wells hasn't worked at tackle.

The Cardinals have talked with the Raiders about trading Davis, according to a report on KGME-AM (910). An NFL source, however, said that deal would not happen. The Raiders have Robert Gallery, the second overall pick in 2004, at left tackle. Gallery has been a disappointment, but it's not like Raiders owner Al Davis to admit he made a mistake in taking Gallery. It's unlikely the Raiders would trade for Davis, who would want a healthy contract to remain with the team.

The Cardinals wanted to see how Davis performed this season before entering negotiations to extend his contract. The fact that the Cardinals have not initiated discussions with Davis means it's unlikely they want to re-sign him.

Tollner said Davis would like to stay in Arizona, but is "comfortable" with the possibility of hitting the free-agent market. "It seems pretty clear a player's value goes up in free agency," he said.


That's the exact same article I already posted above!


Oops. My bad.

I don't think Arizona has any use for a guy like Porter. They're two losses from being out of the playoff picture as well, so they aren't the kind of team to be making trades.

Isn't the LT position less important now that Leinart, a lefty, is at qb? Anyway, I can totally see Moss going to Arizona, but I would expect a package of players and picks. Moss' contract wouldn't be a problem, I think he's made his money and would be happy to reconstruct his deal to make it work, as long as he gets out of Oakland.

Very true - as a southpaw he needs the RT protecting his blindside, not the LT!

Millen is probably waiting for the draft to get a WR. Although this year he went defense with his first pick....

If Detroit is having any talks with Oakland, I'd love to sit in the background and listen to Millen negotiate with Davis. Would be an entertaining way to spend an afternoon, LOL.


:edit:
More rumors to fuel the flames, hehe. But now a new team mentioned. From RotoWorld...
Randy Moss-WR-Raiders Oct. 13 - 12:09 am et
The Steelers are reportedly interested in acquiring either Jerry Porter or Randy Moss from the Raiders.
Pittsburgh reportedly prefers Porter because he's cheaper, but Moss would fit better outside and could push Cedrick Wilson and/or Santonio Holmes into the slot. Oakland would likely command draft picks instead of current Steelers players, although Joey Porter (hamstring) could be a consideration if he's able to pass a physical.
