Some crazy team will give up a 1st round pick+ for Ricky. I think it's all but certain to be the Raiders (John Clayton also just mentioned them). Ricky still has 3-4 solid years ahead of him.
The Raiders are not far away from title territory with their improved D-line and O-lines and very much improving receiving core. Given another solid offseason, I think they're definitely title contenders with Ricky in the '05 season.
I love hearing Mike Ditka bad-mouth Ricky after giving up a whole draft for him.
