I like trying to get MJD/AJ for AD, but I see he wisely passed on that offer. The offer he countered with is garbage. You could just make it simple by telling him you need MJD plus a top WR back...it's tough to deal in the preseason.
That last trade scenario looks like a wash. It could go either way. I am just concerned about MJD's ability to take on a full load. That, coupled with AP's insanely easy schedule. I'd keep AP unless he gave up quite a bit more than that.
Personally I would hate to give up AP....but I'm from OK and enjoyed the hell out of him while here. I think he's the real deal and we've all seen how explosive he can be. Perhaps my "value" of him is overrated, but I think he's the #1 overall pick for a reason. I would need a great deal to pry him loose.
That being said, I would consider this if I were you:
guy says 'he will NOT trade AJ for anything' so ruling out AJ should i try a deal or no? i personally love AJ, but i really like Steve Smith also, im not LOOKING to move AP its just this guy will do just about anything to get a deal done for him, aside from trading AJ... ill post his roster and see if there is anything i should try...
HIS: QB-McNabb, Vick, Favre RB-MJD, Julius Jones, Reggie Bush WR-AJ, Steve Smith, Bernard Berrian, Percy Harvin, Devin Hester TE-Kellen Winslow, Jeremy Shockey K-Kasay DEF-Philly, Tampa IDP-Will Blackman, Jon Alston, Kelly Gregg
MINE: QB-Matt Schaub, Jason Campbell RB-AP, Pierre Thomas, Fred Jackson, Marshawn Lynch, Ray Rice, Domini Rhodes WR-Randy Moss, Greg Jennings, Donnie Avery, Chris Chambers, Crabtree, Nate Washington TE-Zach Miller K-Elam DEF-Tennessee IDP-Jerod Mayo (will have to open up 2 roster spots to fill the last 2 IDP Slots)
i really like MJD, AJ and Steve Smith... would also welcome the upgrades of McNabb, JJ, Bush, Berrian and Hester...
If i was trading AP i would def need to get MJD and S.Smith in return seeing how he wont part ways with AJ. That being said i dont see Berrian or Hester being much of an upgrade to warrant getting in a trade especially since you already have to clear up 2 roster spots for IDP players. So that being said i would simply try to package a Rice/Crabtree with AP for MJD and Smith if he doesnt go for that id sit on AP for a while and let him sweat it out. I see his team needing a trade alot more than i do yours! To give away the best player in FF you better be getting studs in return and hes already eliminating one of his in AJ that he could use to pull the trade off.
I Give: AP/Donnie Avery/Ray Rice I Get: MJD/Steve Smith or I Give: AP I Get: MJD/and either Harvin, Hester or Berrian
