    I saw this on another forum...but it's a bit striking:

    -Why would TT trade Williams right now instead of waiting until draft day if he was just getting him for a pick?

    -Maybe because TT wanted to free up some cap space for a big FA signing like Faneca, Briggs, etc.

    What do you guys think?

    Trades are made when both teams feel they will benefit. So if that's the case, neither team is going to want to wait around, because then the other team might get cold feet or find someone else to trade with. The early bird gets the worm.

    Think of the trade from the Browns point. They want a DT. They want this DT. They've pretty much agreed to what it will be. They can now trade, get their DT, and move on. The Browns know that Williams likely won't be available on draft day (is this is the wheeling and dealing Thompson is going to be doing).

    Just for fun I'll say Faneca, two second round picks no first round pick and no third round pick. But, Marion Barber.

    I think if we didn't have Ryan Grant...hell yes. But I don't think we should give up that much for another RB. Grant, Jackson, and Wynn are good enough for me.

    I assume the fact that a contract had to be signed for the trade to go down would play against a draft day trade to some extent. Also, freeing up cap space had a role as well.

    And who else would give up a 2nd for Corey?



    I say no one, that's who. Just like in fantasy fb, you accept those "is this guy kidding? Or just trying to help me win this year?" deals as soon as you read 'em! :D

    My guess is the Packers could be thinking trade with one of the picks or they wanted to do Corey Williams right and trade him right now so he could get a deal done early. I can't imagine the Packers getting anything higher than what they got for him and to me it doesn't really matter.

    Put it this way, If people are complaining about the timing of trading a guy, then it must be a good time to be a Packer fan.

    Oh brother.. that is worth at least 6 pages of a new thread.. Taylor to Green Bay.. :shock:

    Would be cool.. but aging veteran worth more than a 27 DT with 14 sacks in the past two years from the Tackle slot.. with a hefty salary to boot.

    Definately not the TT mo so far..

    If it said for a fourth alone, I'd say why not. No way that guy has second round value anymore.
