    Or at least it could open up competition for bidding with NO.

    Damn .... I can't find the link but someone at Chargers.com brought up another team has a LB that was hurt this week too ...

    SO, are you going to celebrate this season ending injury too, because you don't like the player?

    I never liked Greenway. Ernie was my boy. All the Urlacher comparisons were premature and I didn't buy into the country boy hype. I don't like Abdul Hodge either but if I had to pick one of them to have a more successful career it's Hodge.

    BTW Fran redeemed himself for the entire draft by having the bawls to take Tavaris Jackson in the second round :icon_mrgreen: Plus leisure's boy Ryan Cook looks like he can become the league's BEST o-line utilityman.

    A trade like that makes no sense for Minny. They just paid a ton of REAL money in a signing bonus, and to let him go would kill their salary cap (you have to take all the hit this season). Plus, you don't give up great OL in their prime for an aging LB.

    I also don't want to go anywhere near Hutchinson's poison pill contract. :icon_eek:

    Edwards to the Vikings sounds very plausible, maybe for the second rounder?

    I don't think anyone is dumb enough to give us a 2nd for Edwards.

    I'd love to see AJ construct a deal to get a 2nd though. Maybe we kick back a 3rd (or a 4th if DE meets some conditions - like Pro Bowl or other post season honors).

    I'm thinking the deal that gets Edwards traded may be a 4th rounder with the condition that it becomes a 3rd rounder in the case that Donnie leads his new team in tackles in 2006.

    I've seen multiple Saints fans (on their forum) say that NO offered us a 3rd for Donnie.

    Before, the rumor had been a 4th.

    One poster on Chargers.com also said NO offered SD a 3rd, but again, no link or mention of where that comes from.

    I'm not buying that SD was offered a 3rd, because I firmly believe AJ would have jumped on it.

    But, AJ does gamble. Maybe he's holding out for more injuries to other team's LBs and wants to see competition in the bidding.

    Which is why the 4th with that condition for a 3rd may be more in line with something that AJ would accept.

    I would relieve the Chargers of Donnie for a 1st rounder and make him ride the bench on my team :icon_razz:

    No that means that it would take a 1st rounder for me to take Donnie from the Chargers. Donnie and a 1st for nothing :tup:

    I'd rather just release or IR Donnie and use his roster spot for someone worthy.
