i hope this is increase our chances or getting him. Lenny P (espn) says this will force the Phins to use Ogunleye as bait to get a running back.

Or they could use that extra cap room to sign him. Hard to tell at this point, I'm not sure that Betts is what they're looking for.

We don't have a RB thats any better than Minor. It will take alot to get Ogunleye. It would probably take something like Betts, a couple of draft picks, and another quality player. It's a tough putt.

Agreed. And this team needs Betts as the number two back anyway.

I heard that the 'Phins might trade Ogunleye to Chi- town for the A- Train (Anthony Thomas). That does not help the situation.

that also wouldn't be an even trade and I think chicago would need to sweeten the pot a bit with atleast one decent pick. I honestly think the phins will either get someone from the fa pool like mack or stewart, or just use a lot more screens and swing passes towards minor. I could still see the phins maybe trading ogunleye here if for anything another 1st round pick so they could draft a young rb and use the other pick to get more help on their offensive line.

Well, at least they have a solid QB so that they can transform into a passing team this year. Air Feeley! LOL

I agree that Betts is not good value in such a trade, be neither are many of the potentially available backs. They may now have cap room for a Samuels trade though.

Does anyone else think at this point maybe we should just leave him alone? We dont really need to give another risky player too much money, lets just go with what we have, im tired of all the late movement on this team

I really doubt anything will happen, but theres nothing wrong with wishful thinking. You have to admit that our biggest whole on the team is the d-line.

Thats what makes it interesting. To speculate, think of different scenarios, and getting everyones opinion. What else are we going to do during the off season?

I also doubt that we'll make a move for O-gun at this point. I think Gibbs and the rest of the staff are committed to the roster we already have. They've worked pretty hard this offseason to install a lot of the system so they can hit the ground running in training camp. I don't think Gibbs would throw an unknown in to the mix this late in the game.

Plus with Ricky retiring that throws a wrench in the works. Miami is looking for a quality RB if they're going to give up O-gun, and we really don't have one worth their while.

well they have the money to resign him now. From what i read they want to use rickys money to sign adewale and chambers to new deals. They dont want to lose their end so they arent jsut going to give him up for picks if they can afford him now.

I think we had a real shot at Ogun until Ricky pulled this. No way now. They will wait him out, and if they decide he is definitely gone for this year, they will use the space to sign Ogun. No way they will trade him for someone's backup RB - get real ESPN. And nobody's gonna give up Priest, LT, Portis, or any other #1 RB for him. I would expect them to go shopping with a round 2 or 3 pick. There are a lot of guys out there that they could possibly pick up that would help them. Examples? Kevin Faulk, Onterrio Smith or Moe Williams, Hambrick, any one of the crew in Denver's stable...
