Any one else hear about this. I can't find anything on it yet. So much for Stephen Davis coming back.

Falcons trade Duckett | ajc.com

Falcons' tailback T.J. Duckett doesn't have to hear any more trade speculation. Tuesday night, he was dealt to the Washington Redskins as part of a three-team deal that brings speedy, but disgruntled Denver Broncos wide receiver Ashley Lelie to Atlanta, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

In exchange for Duckett, 25, the Redskins sent a third- or fourth-round pick to Denver, who, in turn, shipped Lelie, 26, to the Falcons.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

How many third round picks do we have? It seems like every time we make a trade, it's a third round pick.

TJ will be a nice one-two punch with CP. He is a more "between the tackles" type of runner that Gibbs loves.

Yeah, he should be a nice short-yardage and goal line runner.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

Sounds like a good trade. We finally have a Gerald Riggs type RB J.Gibbs loves again!

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

Hmm. I'm not sure I like this one. He won't be playing more than Portis when healthy, and I'm of the opinion that Betts is the better back. It's kinda screwing him.

I really hope we didnt trade a 3 for him. Unofficially, according to pure observation, Duckett is the slowest back in the NFL from the I to the LOS.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

i dont like it or really see a need for it. the few times i saw atlanta last year duckett looked like he weighed about 300lbs. and slow. and i thought al saunders really liked lydell betts. so why bring in duckett?

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

This is one of the dumber moves I have ever seen. What the hell is wrong with Ladel Betts. And in cause our organization hasn't noticed yet, we have no depth on the OL or Secondary. Thats what we should be trading for. Flat out dumb. And i'm not surprised we pissed away another 3rd round pick.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

In case you guys have missed it Betts has been pretty injury prone his entire career. That's not a good thing when our main guy Portis is also banged up. Does anyone really want Rock Cartwright getting 25 carries per game?

What if Portis is ready by 9/11. Does this mean Betts is going to get traded or in danger of getting cut?

Then we have one very good RB and two decent backups.
