Nope, great deal for you.

Vick is an upgrade, there is always an injury risk with him because of his play style but even if he goes down you have a solid roster that should still keep you competitive. Now if Vick stays healthy I don't see how anyone can beat your team. Lets face it, you would have AP, Vick, Hillis, Calvin and some solid surrounding players.

Benson is extremely undervalued, he quietly put up 1100 yards and 7 TDs last year, and if he doesn't perform you have Hightower, LT and Thomas on your bench. I might even try to upgrade at tight end with all those weapons because Lewis value I feel just took a hit with Garrard being cut ;-)

Nope, go for it. He needs to get rid of one of them. I would rather have Rodgers over Vick but I would still take Vick for Ben and B Wells.

Given how gullible this guy apparently is, I'd try to convince him to offer Rodgers instead of Vick. Tell him you're just too confident in Wells to make the trade because "it gives his team too much upside and its too big of a risk for you" and that Rodgers would even it out.

Sounds dumb enough to go for that.


If not, then take this trade with Vick and run with it.


help with mine?
