I would stay put with that offer. :-°

Bush (and I take it we are talking about Reggie Bush) is doing all he can as an every-down back but he 's not built for that type of pounding on a week-to-week basis. Plus he has already missed playing time because of a knee injury so the risk of him being injured once again is a strong possibility. And with your RB depth you can't afford any RB injuries.

Pettigrew has an injury but is playing through it but the entire Lions team is underacheiving as a whole and not producing compared to last year's team. You have a capable TE in Hernandez so Petty is relegated to your bench. DMC has had his struggles to date but it is more of a learning curve for him and the OL with the new zone blocking scheme installed during the offseason. Once the Raiders offense starts clicking DMC will get his yards. Graham is a top tier TE but you can only start one in your lineup and that leaves Hernandez on the bench (unless Graham's ankle puts him out of commission once again).

I like your counter offer but doubt he goes for it with Charles involved. You can try it but don't be surprised if he rejects it.

Thanks! Yeah I don't think he'll let go of Charles either. I've been trying to get rid of Pettigrew or Cook in a trade for a while now, gonna try to shop him to the person that owns Fred Davis but dunno how it will turn out. At this point I can only trade to get RBs since I am out of range of picking up a waiver wire... should've picked up Stephens-Howling when I had the chance!
