Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

In the current spirit of starting a thread about any "credible" rumors, I thought I'd pass this along. According to JLC's blog, Gibbs told Maske that the Redskins have talked with other teams about the possibility of trading up ... to draft Calvin Johnson.

Let the freaking out commence.

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

Hopefully this is a smokescreen. Honestly, we want the other teams to have no clue what we want to accomplish on draft day. That might create a greater sense of urgency when we are entertaining deals with other teams.

I can say that I have no earthly idea what they plan on doing when the draft rolls around.

If Brandon Lloyd's in the trade up plans, then I'm down, but that probably wouldn't even fly in Madden.

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

I'm gonna go ahead and avoid all the turmoil, and pain. I'll start my thread at #300. This is an out and out BS attempt at deceptive chicanery by that prankster, Joe2. PURE smoke!

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

I think at this point anything is possible. A trade up, a trade down, staying put, who really knows what the Skins are thinking. I'm sure they are considering every possibility.

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

I think Gibbs is set on Calvin Johnson. It just seems when they are high on a player they do whatever it takes to get that person. It will be this years 1st, next years 1st, and 2nd, possibly a player. About a month to go and then we'll see what all this is truly about. I get the feeling also from reading some of the other post that Lance Briggs will not be a Redskin.

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

Let me go on record saying this would be the greatest pick up ever! What an amazing superstar to have on our team.

I also want to go on record saying that this would be a terrible plan! We have critical needs elsewhere like DT and DE.

There. I'm covered.

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

this doesn't really seem like anything we haven't heard before, with the exception of the fact that it's actually coming from Gibbs.
I think everyone in the Redskins FO should enter the World Series of Poker this year because one of them is bound to win it. No one seems to be able to read what they're thinking and they seem to have everyone on tilt.

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

Vinny says we'll trade down, Joe up! Who knows till draft day. No matter what, this will be the most exciting draft day since 2000.

I would love to have CJ & I know he's a Gibbs type receiver & person. I also fear the desmond howard jinx, but he definitely has a lot more going for him than Desmond did.

My main problems w/this are:
1) Can we pay Cooley what he's worth next offseason?
2) We'd have 4 wr's earning big checks & most of the O earning big $, but less $ to spend on the D. As it is we're going to have to hope that we find a stud or 2 in the late rounds of the draft & undrafted rooks.

I'm torn, I don't know what to think!

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

Well I stay by my position that IF Calvin johnson falls to 6 which I HIGHLY doubt I think the Skins should take him but besides that. Trade down. i don't see them moving up though.

Re: Maske/JLC: Gibbs Hints Redskins Might Trade Up

Guys, I just heard Gibbs just hinted he and Pat might order Chinese food tonight. But they're also open to the possibility of going out for pizza. Any plans to go to Cold Stone Creamery after dinner are not imminent at this time.

I'll keep you posted

They're all a bunch of idiots! They should be going out for Italian Ice at Rita's in order to save a couple of dollars for tomorrow's dessert. Don't they know anything?
