    Why not? Lay out the numbers for me. I thought we had some room left.

    Have we ever made a trade with Pitt?
    i know it will never happen but if it did it will be more of an impact that Moss to the Patriots.

    The price it would take to get him in terms of draft picks and cap space would be way to much for a luxury player. We already have one of the better guard tandems in the league.

    What do people think Pitt would want? A second rounder? Not to mention Faneca will be a FA next year so then we also have to sign him to a big ol' contract

    The only way a trade like this would make sense, considering the expense-even if we had the cap room, is if it would fill a crying need. This one doesn't. Considering the the lack of critical needs on this roster after the draft we had, I don't know that there are any available players out there now that I would trade for. Anyone out there who would be a real upgrade to any position on our roster is not apt to be on the market. Maybe if someone offered us the likes of Larry Fiztgerald or Darrell Jackson, it might be worth considering if it wouldn't break the bank. Even then, I don't know if I'd pull the trigger for the likely price tag. So far, I like our guys just fine.

    We could've had DJ for a song. SF gave up just a 4th round pick. He would've been a nice addition for the next couple years while Davis develops. Like I said back when DJ was available... I don't understand why we don't look at a guy like this. He doesn't have a "tude" (Moss) or have dinosaur arms (Boston) and his tank isn't empty (McCardell).

    Geez, how did I miss this one. I find it hard to figure why they wouldn't grab him. They had extra picks, they had depth to trade with. Go figure.
