    so if we tag him, we can atleast get a pick for him and use it to draft his replacement

    We can tag him 1st and 3rd and they can have him. He is going to get the 1st rnd tag at a minimum.

    Good, then we can rip ny for another top pick. You'd think they'd learn by now, but whatever. 2 more first round picks:lol:

    It is technically a tender we offer Turner since he is a Restricted free agent (although I am not sure if he is an EFA) ....

    We can not use any "tags" on the Burner until he is a free agent or his 4th year in the league. Just like we did on Brees' flunky ***.

    If we give Turner the max tender of ~$2 mil or whatever next year, we would get a 1st and a 3rd in compensation.

    I am not sure the Giants would want to fuc with AJ Smith after the *** raping he put on the Giants in the Rivers/Merriman/Kaeding deal.

    He will be a RFA at the end of this year and we can tender(said tag before) the 1st and 3rd (2 Mil+) or the 1st (prolly around 1.8).

    If we give him the 1&3 or 1 tender and no one bites, he wll be a FA in 2008.

    Yeah that's the way I understand it.

    I also do not see the Chargers using any Tags to keep Turner UNLESS LT has a catastrophic knee injury in 2007. Somewhere in Feb 2008, we would have to tag Turner to keep his rights.

    Personally, I think the chargers should pay the guy starter money and keep him here. To replace him, you have to use a draft choice and you may not get another runner as good as him. Either way, I'm sure AJ is thinking about it even now and making plans. He'll get the most he can if it does come down to getting rid of him. But I'd like to see him stay and get paid and be a bigger part of our offense.

    However, I'm not sure if he was a 3rd round pick or a 5th, but we would certainly gain a first rounder for him. Nice return on an investment.

    I'd like to see him stay too, in a couple of years LT can be a Marshall Faulk, Reggie Bush (in USC) type back and Turner the primary runner

    I would like to see us get some draft picks and upgrade our Offensive line.

    If we commit to this path, your grandma could run through the holes and running backs are a dime a dozen (see Denver).

    This way we do not have to overpay for prima donnas like LaDainian Tomlinson. :)

    michael turner is a beast and it would be foolish to get rid of him i always hear on satellite that you need depth in important positions burner adds that depth and he adds a powerful running game i can see him taking over for neal at opening the way for l.t if neal decides to go ,i always hear a fool and his money are soon parted well burners just straight up money breakin off big runs ive only seen him get caught once from behind dragging defenders all over the fiels and knocking down the others ,yep call it what you will but im on the burner bandwagon yup no doubt ,L.T and burner together = serious damage and confusion for defenses,i bleed blue and gold ,bolts for life,marc "NY"

    Look for AJ to totally rape whichever team wants to get MT. He'll parlay that 5th round pick into something SWEEEEEET. And if nobody goes for it, hey we still have the best backup RB in football. Can't lose situation. :icon_toast:

    Turner would make the NYGiants offense the best offense in the league. I want to be a Giants fan now :icon_rofl:

    Right, i understand that.. Tender is the word i shoulda used. I meant he is a RFA and will most likely get the highest tender.

    I just want more and better beef. Even if we win the Super Bowl, we need more beef.
