one of those sign and trade deals.
i don't think this is gonna happen,nor do i think betts will be traded. i just think if having to choose between betts and duckett, then i'd rather the skins keep betts.

Cartwright is not the guy I would want to step in in the event Portis or Betts goes down, and it's not likely we could trade Duckett because he's about to enter FA. With the backs we have it dosen't make sense to trade one just to go look for a replacement.
I respectfully disagree. I know the two-back system is en vogue now because of teams like Indy and Chicago, but I don't think it's necessarily the answer for most teams. A lot of running backs don't produce when they get 10 carries a game. Betts himself said that it normally takes him about 15 snaps to get into a rhythm. Ladell Betts was not "Ladell Betts" until Portis went on IR - in fact he was in danger of getting cut two seasons ago.

Moreover, while I would love to have a backup running back who can step in and play like a Pro Bowler, you rarely get to eat your cake and eat it too. We have so many holes at other positions that I would welcome the opportunity to get a Pro Bowl defensive player (e.g., Vilma) in exchange for our backup RB. Unless Betts can play defense or Portis isn't expected to recover fully from his injuries, trading him would be a smart move.

Re: Draft Day Trades: Jets Interested?!(from a primary source)

It would be a crime if Betts were traded. He remains loyal after a career season, and then we give him the shaft.

That said, we would have to trade him if we had "an offer we couldn't refuse". But, Vilma and 1st round swaps is definitely a deal to refuse.

I also think that RBs are relatively easy to come by, and it doesn't make sense to keep a backup when you can get a starter to fill a need. A 2nd or 3rd round pick could produce a back with more talent than Betts. Let's not forget, CP was a 2nd rounder.

If there are other teams interested in Betts, then that is how we could get the best value. Also, we MUST keep our #6 pick, unless we can trade it down for more picks -- not players (that is how we got lost our picks to begin with).

So, if we can get Vilma for Betts without losing our #6 pick, then we'd be stupid not to.

Re: Draft Day Trades: Jets Interested?!(from a primary source)

RBs and LBs are easy to get in the 2nd round, but that's a really steep drop for trading replaceable positions. vilma is the better player, but he's not urlacher or ray lewis (in his prime).

you're also trading alan branch for whoever is left at 25, who won't be nearly as good in all likelyhood.

Vilma is still young and one of the best. I make this trade all day long.

I definately agree that trading Betts AND the 6th overall pick for Vilma and the Jets 1st rounder isn't a good deal. But swapping a backup RB and say a 2nd rounder next year for a starting, Pro Bowl MLB sounds like a good deal.
As much as I love Betts, I guess I still haven't totally forgiven him for numerous injury-plagued seasons and his fumbles at critical moments in games last season.

Exclamation Re: Draft Day Trades: Jets Interested?!(from a primary source)

This is all I am saying...

1) Trade Betts while his value is high. We need to shop him now while his value is still high, and before everyone else finds out that he has a pnechant for fumbling. We could Easily get a 3nd rounder, and, if the climate is right around draft time, we could potentially work out a deal for a 2nd rounder.

2) Get a corner/fs somewhere in the draft. We tanked on getting a corner last year when we passed on Jimmy Williams to get Rocky McIntosh. So we desperately need to address that position via the draft, and NOT free agency. We keep signing these guys who seem to lose the will to work after they sign the big contracts.

3) The story is 100% non-fabricated. I was there, and so was George Michael. I could have used a host of scenarios to make the story sound sweeter, but I told it as it was. Truthful. And don't ever question the man who runs the Sports Machine and Redskins Report! He is the De Facto sports information icon of anything Burgundy and Gold since 1984.

4) I don't think that we should take the Jets deal at all. The story was merely a way to show the potential value of LBetts as trade material in the "real world" of NFL GM cirlces. This is only ONE example of many RB hungry teams that could be salivating at a RB that has been a backup to start for them. Who knows his value may go up around draft time. But, we need to use that 6th pick on the best DE available, or trade down to acquire more picks. Which bring me to my 5th point...

5) We need more picks and bad! I dont think anyone realzies that we have 1 pick in the entire first day of the draft. So, if we dont get anymore picks, then we will have to go home or turn on the ps3 after the sixth pick in the first day. If not, you will be forced to watch and think about how a "Jonnie Doe" would have done for us in the rounds 2-4, where we gave up draft picks for players.

6) We need to abandon this philosophy of trading draft picks for players! Its the reason we didnt have a first and 3rd last year, and its the reason why we dont have a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th this year. It never works, either way we have a high cap hit and a player who never really lives up to expectation. The inverse is needed to stop the bleeding. So trade players for draft picks. Its so crazy it just might work.

7) Stay with the system. Every year teams like the Patriots, Ravens, and Chargers get better and deeper as a team thru the draft. We don't grow simply, because we don't draft.

8) Cut Brunell, Wynn, restructure Archuleta's contract(or restructure and trade him to Chicago to reunite with Lovie SMith), keep Shawn Springs, and maybe get a corner after the draft when teams release players to sign draft picks. Im not sold on clements or any other free agent CB.


9) Lastly, we need to go with the best end in the 1st round. I would say take a corner here, but none are worthy of being taken this high in this draft class. Trade for a 2nd or 3rd rounder to get the best CB/FS available. A plus would be to get someone who could play both (like Jimmy Williams...no, I wont stop bringing it up). In the 5th, 6th, and 7th go after DT, LB, RB(if we trade BEtts), DE(pass rush specialist-a la Mark Anderson of the Bears if we don't trade betts), and WR(if we could find a Marques Colston, Donald Driver, or Mike Furrey steal in the late round could help make WR more competitive behind Moss). Plus we need a receiver over 6' tall!!

Im 6'2", do u think I can get a try out? lol

Seriously, if we dont make moves we will have essentially the same team depth wise as last year. I dont want to have one draft pick for the first day, so make moves and build the team for the real test - who will run things when Gibbs is gone? Its 2 years away, we need to look forward to building an inexpensive, productive, proactive base of talent for when he is gone. So that we dont end up at square one again.

I feel you guys on hearsay, but I was there. I talked to the man. If u dont believe, then fine. You dont have to. It still happened, and I was working, so I wasnt drunk. We need draft picks bad and he told me that we have someone(Betts) who can help us get depth as a team.

If something happens, dont be surpised.

Since we are on the subject...What are you guys gonna do after the SKins select 6th overall untill our next pick??

Re: Draft Day Trades: Jets Interested?!(from a primary source)

With our Six pick here are three DL candidates from ESPN insider to consider:


Gaines Adams Scouts Grade: 98
DE | (6'4", 261, 4.7) | CLEMSON

Strengths: Possesses adequate-to-good height and only decent bulk -- but room on his frame to get bigger. Very agile for the position. Displays explosive first-step quickness and good top-end speed as an edge rusher. Displays very good instincts and awareness as a pass rusher. Has long arms, times his jumps well and does a great job of batting down passes at the line of scrimmage. He also has shown good fluidity when occasionally asked to drop in coverage on zone blitzes. He has improved his discipline and technique versus the run. Does a fine job of sealing off the backside. He gets upfield quickly and can be disruptive in the backfield versus the run. Also shows very good change-of-direction skills in space, which allows him to redirect and pursue as a run defender. He is a hard worker with solid all-around intangibles.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal bulk and lower-body strength. He will need to improve his size in order to consistently take on NFL blockers. He absorbs too many blocks and doesn't do a consistent enough job of disengaging once reached. Needs to play with more consistent leverage versus the run. Has a tendency to come out of his stance too high and will allow linemen to get into his pads too frequently. He needs to become more consistent as a tackler. He will overextend at times and gets caught lunging or leaving his feet too frequently.

Overall: Adams was redshirted in 2002. He saw action in 12 games as a backup defensive end for the 2003 season, registering 15 total tackles, four tackles for loss, and one sack. Adams played in all 11 contests with just one start (Texas A&M) in 2004 but did win Clemson's defensive 12th man award after recording 35 total tackles, eight tackles for loss, five sacks, and two blocked punts. In 2005, he took over as the starting "bandit" DE and made 56 total tackles, 15 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, 29 quarterback pressures, and three forced fumbles. Adams started all 13 games during the 2006 season, finishing with 62 total tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, 12.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries.

Adams made a wise decision to bypass the 2006 NFL Draft and return for his senior season. He played eight-man football in high school, so he needed the extra time in college to mature both physically and as a player. He still needs to get bigger and do a better job of defending the run, but he has the frame to add at least 15 more pounds and he made noticeable strides in his run-stopping technique during his final season at Clemson. Adams should eventually become a playmaking starter as a 4-3 end in the NFL -- and he also displays enough athletic ability to fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker. Regardless, Adams grades out as the premier defensive end prospect in the 2007 class and he should come off the board within the top-10 picks.

Jamaal Anderson Scouts Grade: 96
DE | (6'5", 273, 4.75) | ARKANSAS

Strengths: Possesses outstanding size. Is tall with great weight distribution, long arms and big hands. Displays good lower-body strength and upper-body power. Is able to jar offensive linemen with initial punch. Is smooth and fluid for his size. Possesses adequate speed and is able to change directions quickly for a big defensive end. He displays good combination moves of power and finesse as a pass rusher. Plays with a high motor and is relentless as a pass rusher. He has enough size and strength to effectively hold his ground when teams run at him, so long as he plays with good leverage. He pursues hard from the backside in run-support and he is a powerful tackler.

Weaknesses: Lacks elite top-end speed and will struggle to turn the corner as quickly when rushing the passer off the edge. He does not possess great first-step quickness, either. Fires out of his stance too high and must learn to play with better leverage. Needs to do a better job of using his hands to get off blocks. He will struggle to disengage quickly enough versus the run. Limited experience; he was only a starter for a year and a half at Arkansas before leaving early.

Overall: Anderson saw action in all 11 games in 2004 as a true freshman off the bench and on special teams recording 18 total tackles, two tackles for loss, and one blocked punt. In 2005, he once again played in all 11 games but received five starts to end the year after Anthony Brown was injured and registered 47 total tackles including 10.5 for loss, 5.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles. Anderson then started all 14 games during the 2006 season amassing 65 total tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss, 13.5 sacks, and one forced fumble gaining First Team All-SEC recognition.

Anderson is making the NFL plunge a year early after experiencing a breakout season as a junior in 2006. The good news and bad news with Anderson is that he's still relatively raw. While he may not be ready to contribute as an every-down player as a rookie, he displays the physical tools to develop into an upper-echelon starter if he continues to work at the next level. Anderson should be one of the top three or four defensive ends selected -- most likely in the mid-to-late first-round range.

Alan Branch
DT | (6'5", 328, 5.23) | MICHIGAN

Scouts Grade: 97

Strengths: A massive two-gap interior defender with excellent height, bulk and strength. He possesses a massive frame and is able to occupy two blockers in the run game. He shows good initial quickness for his size and typically does a solid job of playing with leverage for such a tall guy. He shows good balance and body control for his size. He gives a great effort on most plays and shows better than average stamina for his massive frame. He can take over a game when he's fresh and gets his motor running. He is more of a two-gap fit, but he often will disrupt plays in the backfield by using his quickness, size and strength to penetrate. He is a powerful tackler with impressive wrap-up skills for his size. He displays the ability to collapse the pocket with a powerful bull rush. He's versatile and has experience playing NT, DT and DE in three-and-four man fronts.

Weaknesses: Lacks ideal explosiveness. He's quick for his size but lacks the speed and closing burst to consistently make an impact as a pass rusher in the NFL. He's mostly a one-dimensional bull rusher type. He needs to improve his arsenal of pass-rush moves. He has room to improve in terms of using his hands to play off of blocks. Durability is only a minor concern after missing two games due to a knee injury in 2005.

Overall: Branch appeared in all 12 games as a true freshman in 2004 seeing time at defensive tackle, defensive end, and on special teams registering five total tackles, two tackles for loss, and two sacks. In 2005, he played in all 12 games starting the final 10 contests and recorded 31 total tackles, 10 tackles for loss, five sacks, one fumble recovery, and one forced fumble, again seeing action at both defensive tackle and end. Branch settled into a starting spot at defensive tackle for all 13 games in 2006 and finished the season with 25 total tackles, six tackles for loss, two sacks, one interception, three fumble recoveries, and two forced fumbles earning First Team All-Big Ten accolades.

Branch is an all-around gifted defensive tackle prospect with an outstanding combination of size, power and quickness. He has experienced playing end in a 3-4, the three-technique in a 4-3, and nose tackle in both alignments. Regardless of where he lines up, Branch fits best in a two-gap scheme. In our opinion, Branch is the most complete all-around interior defensive lineman in the 2007 class and he should be a top-10 pick.

If it was jets give up vilma, #25 and their 3rd rounder...i would still think about it.
Maybe we can get the pick we gave them for Rocky back? What better way to fix the LB situation then by getting the pick back that you dealt them to fix your LB situation?

I don't like the prospect of moving out of the top 10-15 and giving up the chance to get an impact lineman. But if we can get a deal similar to what we'd get if we traded down anyway, but then theres a Betts for Vilma deal, thats pretty damn sweet.

I believe you when you say you were there--if for no other reason then the deal seems like a Redskin-esque deal. We give up loads of value, but we fill a need with a guy from the University of Miami.

As for the deal itself, I don't like it as is, but with a little reasonable negotiating, we can make this deal better for us.

Re: Draft Day Trades: Jets Interested?!(from a primary source)

This team really is run like a Madden franchise. I don't oppose trading Betts in priniciple, but moving from 6 to 25 is too significant a drop, even for a player of Vilma's caliber.
