Cut Locker. His chances of NFL success are slim and none. He is way too inaccurate to make a living throwing the ball.

Hey Minnesota,

First off, welcome to the cafe. I see you've been a member for a while, and you're just now getting to posting. I hope you'll plan to stick around and enjoy the people, info, and tools the cafe offers. I have moved your post to the "Draft, Trade, Keeper, and Waiver Questions" forum. You'll get much better and quicker responses there. We've got some pretty smart fellers on our "Response Team" (guys who have been noted for their ability to respond to questions like this and give good answers) who will hopefully chime in with their advice.

Also, I'd agree with Knapp. I'd drop Locker. He's probably my least favorite QB of this past year's class. Not to mention, he's gonna be playing for TEN, where he'll have next to nothing to throw to (Britt's got all that legal trouble, who knows how much of the field he'll see.). Good luck out there. ;-D

Locker. He may see the field this year but on a terrible team and barring injuires to your QB1 and QB2 will never see your active roster. Even if you have to filed him, he won't win you any games, you would be better suited to trade for a QB at that point.

Agreed. Locker is farther down the list than the three you have listed. Like bungle says I doubt he will ever see your active roster.

I would keep Titus Young.


What are you doing with this team? Aside from Tuck/Polomalu and Crabtree/Edwards your team is either quite old, or very young.

I think you need to commit one way or another. Murphy's not going to be a championship piece. I don;t think you can acquire enough RB and WR talent to make a title push now.

You have some pieces with value in Ray Lewis, Peyton, Welker...If I were you, I'd be blowing this sucker up. Cassel can hold you over at QB. Blount's a young guy with promise. Outlook not so good on Knowshon, but worth keeping for sure.



You first have to decide what to do with your team. It looks like it has no purpose with the roster as is. If you go win now, go after it hard and drop Locker. If you go future, trade those aging guys for some future firsts and guys with promise, and drop Murphy.

Definitely agreed on Locker. He won't start for you. Ever. One way or the other.

I am by no means a Locker fan...but people are being a bit hard on him here. He probably starts this season, he's got incredible physical talent, he's a first round QB...may as well see if he's good this year - especially since you aren't going to be winning this year anyway.

On the premise I'd rather have 5% odds at $100 than 50/50 on $1 I'd keep Locker over Titus and Murphy. I think Murphy has least trade value. Moss is also an option but I'd try to get a future 2nd or 3rd for him before dropping him outright.

great advice thrifty. I see Locker as boom/bust... and by the end of 2011 we will know which way he's trending. Hold on to your lottery ticket. I would dump Murphy.
