    I think you are assuming I am for this trade. The only assumption you should make is that I am here to create conversation on the forum. No where did I say I support this idea.

    Misunderstood me. I never said you were for the trade, i'm saying im interested to see what the opinions would be seeing how Fitzgerald would be alot of money. I'd love the trade but we know TT.

    I wouldn't make the trade. Lots of good receivers will be available in the 2nd round 2014. And I like Jordy.

    ...

    Against it. No interest in spending that kind of money on any WR.

    LMAO, I was just about to come post this. Apparently this genius at ESPN thinks Mike Ditka is GM.

    Well thats all that matters. I would be for it, so good luck to people who are for it because alot of folks on here agree with not having a high priced wr with the depth we have...well had. Which makes my case for Fitz even greater haha.

    No way that I would be for it, no way it would happen. We need a possession receiver for over the middle, not a #1 or #2 receiver.

    No way. I don't care how good he is, that is way too much to give up.

    agree 100%. Maybe we can go get Davon Bess from Cleveland for a 3rd?

    it's also hard to tell how good he is anymore when he hasn't had anyone that can get him the ball for 3 years. he may have lost a step.

    I'd like to have him and I'd be willing to part with a 2nd, but not Jordy or Franklin. Both are too valuable. One could argue that Fitz for Jordy, however much better Fitz is right now, would be a lateral move. Franklin is young and might turn out to be great for us. Fitz + Jordy, I'm for that.

    While I like Fitz, there is NO WAY IN HELL I would give up Nelson, Franklin and a 2nd round draft pick. Fitz isnt exactly a spring chicken.

    Plus, he's got a hammy issue right now. Like this team needs another one of those...

    I'm in the "no" category as well. What has worked well for GB is unselfish receivers that work as a group/unit and aren't into stats. I know that Fitzgerald is a stand-up guy but he's a true #1 receiver and will want the ball more than he wants to share.

    On top of that, a 2nd round pick along with Nelson and Franklin is crazy considering the cap hit we'd take on. I could see the second round pick and Franklin IF we had a healthy Starks and DuJuan Harris backing up Lacy. Right now Franklin is our only real backup. You can't count Kuhn.

    What we need is more WR so trading away Jordy doesn't really help us in any way. I'd rather have a platoon of fighters vs a Calvin Johnson / Larry Fitzgerald / Steve Smith type of WR.

    Agree EG, not to mention.....Our main trio of guys is nothing to sneeze at. Plenty of teams out there would be willing to fight over having Nelson, Cobb, and J Jones. They are a NFL top 5 trio IMO.

    To be honest, my first reaction was "This guy is high on something"..

    Seriously? TT never would trade a 2nd round pick for someone over 30, let alone a top receiver in the league (in Nelson) and a potential good backup runningback that has over 100 yards in a game already. I could see trading ONLY picks for Larry, but not both physical and future assets.

    You could argue that they are the top trio

    I completely agree, which is why I've posted as I have the last while. We don't even have our top 5 trio. Throw our top TE in the mix and what we have is a quarter of the NFL's top five quad.

    when we're short of receivers, what would be the point of trading one for another, it wouldn't give us any more options

    poor journalism
