    that would be a bad move, I'd give Cro another year at least. We know what D Flo can/can't do, depending on your perspective of his play.

    I agree that this would be a bad move at this time. Unless we get a 1st rounder in return for him right now, why sell low?

    Especially when we might have an uncapped year next year.

    Hopefully this is only a motivator for Cro? One thing for sure, he won't wry like Cutler at the news.

    The salary of any player will not be able to exceed 30% going into the uncapped years. This is why NFL Mgt. is not ******** bricks. It is not a salary orgy free for all in other words for the richer teams or players.

    Cro Traded... Depends on for whom he's being traded for before I comment. Give me a MLB that can play all three downs that demands to be game planed against and I'll take it.

    Problem with my theory is that every team is looking for that MLB and Cro's 08' season isn't anything to be terribly proud of.

    Serious? That's a little extreme me thinks, jumping to assume that his 2007 campaign was a fluke

    But also I guess then they wouldn't move Florence to safety, which would suggest they are seriously thinking of moving Cason there?

    This is just really confusing

    Not if this means brining D-Blow back. SCREW THAT. :tdown:

    I'll take Cro with his big mouth and bad hip over a healthy D-Blow.

    I guess they think if he has a good 2009 they won't be able to extend him, and Merriman would get the franchise tag

    If Florence is back and Cro is gone I asume Jammer and Cason would be the CB and Florence the nickel back

    Yeah, because A.J. was responsible for all of the bonehead mistakes in the 2006 playoffs, and he was responsible for all the injuries in 2007.

    Geez. :icon_shrug:

    If he has a great 09' they can franchise him and trade him like the Pats did with Cassel!!! The worst possible thing would be to sell him at his lowest value, which is NOW!

    They better be damn sure Cason is as good as advertised.

    Florence was a complete failure in Jax. He was an avg DB here with rocks for brains.

    Maybe if some team gave us their first round picks for the next 3 to 4 years. Merriman is worth a lawerance taylor. Which is a once in a generation player. I don't know if we trade him for 3 first rounders how we'd find players to make up for his loss.

    OUr ace in the hole if the chargers traded cromartie is CAson who could replace him. Lucky us. But some team would have to give us alot for cromartie. Cromartie was hurt all last year. Anyone see what his cousin did last year in his rookie year in arizona. The Cromarties have incredible talent. Thats a given. Some team would have to give the chargers alot if they wanted the chargers cromartie.

    What do you think of a trade between the Seahawks and the Chargers...

    Chargers get #4 overall pick

    Seahawks get #16 overall pick, Cromartie

    This was just something that was mentioned over at Seahawk blue and I was wondering what Charger fans thought about it..

    Not a good idea getting a pick that early. Costs too much. Chargers problem now is trying to keep the salary cap manageable.

    Better to get middle to later 1st round picks and early to middle 2nd round picks. This draft especially . There are alot of good players. But not that many very good players. The best players in this draft are o-lineman. Thats the key to this draft. How many good o-lineman there are in it. I hope we get one out of it. Beatty or britton later in the first round would be very good. But we really need a better d-end/d-tackle. Which somehow we have to get with a middle 2nd rounder. D-tackle brace or evander hood would be the ones to hopefully land with the traded down 2nd rounder.

    Rams fan here...

    I was wondering what the Bolts need is at OT or WR to try and get a feel if the Rams have any shot at acquiring Cromartie...

    I would love to see him in a Rams Jersey and we could definately use more cornerback help..we currently only have 1 i could see starting and you obviously need 2 starting CBs...

    Us Rams Fans think that maybe a:
    Holt and Pace for Cromartie and a 4 swap?

    I thought pace is almost dead and retired. And holt is almost the same. Cromartie is just getting started. You'd owe us a 1st and 2nd rounder for cromartie. Good luck.

    Nice try, but Holt and Pace are likely to be released soon if they can't find a trade partner.

    I would not accept less than a 1st rounder THIS year for Cromartie.

    might be modivation for cro, i know AJ took at shot at him in the press conference talking about guys hanging the mag covers with them on it on the wall and they wont be on them this year, i think cro needs to do a lil growing up cause even when Marshall was abusing him he still had the cockyness to talk trash, and after his 10 int season he is talking about a 100 mill contract... right now i wouldnt give him a 20 mill contract
