    Per my hero, Adam Schefter:
    Think Telesco would try and deal for Josh Gordon? He'd provide quite a spark for us on the offensive side of the ball...

    Hmmm...if there was a suspicious fire nearby, yes, it seems likely that Josh might've provided the "spark."

    Drugs? Sure! Often!

    Let's pass on this one, Telescopo.

    I'd really like to see us land Gordon, not sure Telesco is the type to start trading picks for guys with questionable character though.

    At this point I'd trade for Hayden or one of their OLBs over Gordon

    Don't laugh, Norv's draft insights will turn that team around.

    The circus going on in Cleveland led Joe Thomas to chime in, and Cleveland came out and said he is NOT on the trading block, but it got me thinking, should the Chargers make a move for Joe Thomas?

    I'd certainly send them a 2nd rounder without a doubt for him, and maybe package a player that Norv likes in there.

    Just a thought.

    If Trent Richardson cost a first, Joe Thomas will be worth multiple firsts or at the very least a first and something

    I want TJ Ward, Jabaal Sheard or Joe Hayden more than I want Joe Thomas. He's not a dominant player, and he should be for his price tag.

    Really I've been pretty happy with Dunlap. He's soft, but he's a good pass blocker.

    Forget receivers. They have any linemen?

    It cost the Colts that because he was their best player on offense, he was the 3rd overall pick last year, and he hasn't even hit his full potential. The fact he can improve on a 11 touchdown rookie year is crazy.

    Joe Thomas is easily the leagues best pass protector. He didn't have an elite 2012 year, he gave up 3 sacks I believe, and wasn't and really hasn't been known for his run blocking.

    It's just a need we will not need to worry about in the next couple of 2-3 drafts.

    Wait til u hear this (can't remember if I posted this before). My dentist's daughter used date Alex Mack. She was on a tennis scholarship at Cal before transferring to Vanderbilt. Anyhows my man has met Alex quite a few times and one of the things he remembers him saying is that he would love to return to CA. I say go after him he might even take a 'hometownish discount' to replace Nick next year.

    That's nothing, I offered Cleveland a Chimichanga and I got Brandon Weeden

    While it may be tempting, I don't envision WR as being one of the Boltz' more pressing needs at the moment.

    Josh Gordon and Greg Little on the market..

    I'd give up a 4th rounder for one of them.
