Clayton reporting Tatum Bell being shopped

Postby GreenBay4Life » Tue Feb 27, 2007 1:50 am

ESPN.com's John Clayton confirms that Denver is trying to trade Tatum Bell.

Houston and Green Bay look like the best fits to us. Dynasty league owners may want to start shopping Bell because his value is unlikely to go up away from Denver.


If this is true i surely like bell better than green not only is he younger but cheaper plus he has more experience in the zone running scheme.

i like lynch to however for some reason i dont see the pack drafting him. I think thompson believes like the broncos that they can get a starting rb later in the draft.

I think that the pack should take a serious look at Mcgahee. By doing that they eliminate the need to draft an RB for atleast 6+ years, as willis is still young, and they can take a sick safety in the draft.

yea willis is great but can he run in a run blocking scheme... dont know would be interesting to see. The pack are in good shape i have never seen so many top stud rbs being shopped and let go via FA in the last few yrs.

I would prefer to see the pack resign green for a 1 year deal, and then draft lynch

The Giants are interested in Taco Tatum Bell too.

That would be an intriguing backfield: the speedster Bell and bruiser Jacobs.

EDIT: Thought this was leftovers, not the Packers forum. I guess you guys don't really care who the Giants get. O:-) :-b

Drafting Lynch would be expensive. I personally would rather pick up one of these good free agents - TBell would be a good fit because with Morency, he wouldn't have to carry the load. 15 - 20 carries a game, which is when he works best.

Gotta go defense in the draft. So much depth at safety, I would love to take the best one available in the first round.

Draft picks are almost always less expensive than Free Agents. I think safety is a consideration, but as you said there's a ton of depth and we could wait until the 2nd...

I agree, except at RB. I'll have to look up the numbers, but I think both Maroney and Addai got bigger deals than what we'd have to pay a retread running back. Running backs get so little interest in free agency, they are the one position I think is more economical to get that way - assuming, of course, they accept your lowball offer.
