Skins and Jets, talk Vilma for Portis.

First I've heard of this one? It's also on SI.com

FanNation | Truth&Rumors | Jets to trade Vilma for Portis?

I give that a 1% chance of happening...if they traded away their day 1 picks as well as vilma for CP straight up, then maybe.

Re: Skins and Jets, talk Vilma for Portis.

I thought Portis really liked it here in DC but I guess that what they all want us to think until something better comes their way. I guess he can go to NY and act like a clown with his stupied cotumes and fit right in. Maybe thats why the skins got the bets deal done because they knew portis would bail on us. Do we even play them this year so Sean can knock the crap out of him. I always thought he was over rated

I'd call it closer to 50/50. I think they'd trade Portis in a hearbeat if anyone would take his contract.

STOP THE INSANITY.

The trade is impossible from the Redskins' perspective, trading Portis would generate a cap hit we could not absorb. The hit would eat up $8 million in cap space, and we currently only have $4 - $5 million in cap room.

Secondly, the Jets JUST traded for Thomas Jones. We do follow the NFL on this site, right?

This rumor came from Portis being Portis. He was probably effing with the media on purpose. He probably whispered to Vilma beforehand, "Dude check this out, I'm going to send these newspaper types in a tizzy, just play along."

So Jonathan, did you hear you're going to Washington? I think you'll like Washington, how will I like NY?

Where did it say that Portis wanted to be traded? According to the rumor, he just told Vilma they would be traded for each other. That doesn't mean he's happy about it, and if they trade him, how is it him bailing on the Redskins? I'd call it Washington bailing on one of their star players, as they so often do.

ASININE

If we hadn't already picked up London Fletcher, maybe, but still...Portis has more of an impact on our team than a LB could. Vilma is a good one, but there are better out there and we got one without giving up our best player and face of our franchise.

I honestly hope it happened the way you described, I just won't be surprised if something "shocking" like this happens this weekend.

Dude, the salary cap tells you all you need to know. Portis is untradeable. Completely 100% untradeable. As in it is not fiscally possible.

The only guy that is both fiscally tradeable and is actually worth something is Shawn Springs.

I was joking and just saying stuff that I see everyday hear when some dumb rumor pops up and no one even knows if its true.

Ahh... my fault. Sarcasm is hard to read in text form.
